Re: [Phys-l] physics of dissipation (was: T dS versus dQ)

The sound is intense enuf to produce defects?

I thought the increase in S was due to the distortion of the metal (breaking of bonds and atom movement) at and near the contact surfaces. Sound is the means of diffusion of the local increase in atomic motion?

bc avoided the noun heat.
