This elementary fact is an essential ingredient of theories describing macroscopic physics (frictional motion in mechanics, viscous flow, electrical conduction, conduction of heat, diffusion, chemical reactions, etc.). Nonequilibrium “irreversible” thermodynamics provides a common framework for all such phenomena.
