Dissipation is the result of irreversible processes that take place in inhomogeneous systems. These processes produce entropy (see entropy production) at a certain rate. The entropy production rate times ambient temperature gives the dissipated power. Important examples of irreversible processes are: heat flow through a thermal resistance, fluid flow through a flow resistance, diffusion (mixing), chemical reactions, and electrical current flow through an electrical resistance (Joule heating). The concept of dissipation was introduced in the field of thermodynamics by William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) in 1852.
