Irreversible Process From Reversible Laws

A 50-minute guest lecture for Physics 2, Track C, at Caltech, given in April 1987. Feynman addresses a fundamental and paradoxical problem in physics: natural phenomena are characterized by irreversibility (for example, frying an egg), but physical laws all appear to explain only reversible processes. This is one of Feynman's last lectures to undergraduates.
