Abstracts

In this note, we point out that a case of mechano-caloric effect of superfluid $^4$He actually establishes a temporary entropy-decreasing process, which was unnoticed in the past. We show that this process can be used to convert thermal energy from the environment to useful energy in principle, and therefore, the second law of thermodynamics is not an universal law.
