Thermodynamics is written in both classical and statistical formats. It will be shown that misunderstanding has allowed the science to become overly complicated. The concept of lost work in both expanding and compressed systems will be examined classically, showing why processes are irreversible here on Earth due to expanding system’s interactions with the surrounding atmosphere. This new classical explanation allows for a simplification of the science, which should lead to the questioning and possible rewrite of statistical thermodynamics.
