Abstract

A series of examples rarely presented to students is discussed to illustrate a property of thermodynamic equilibrium: small parts of a fully isolated system move as if points of a rigid body, so as to minimize the macroscopic (kinetic) energy EM. Most examples lie in the fields of astronomy and astrophysics, EM then including the gravitational energy. The paradoxical behaviour of gravitation, in particular in the extreme case of black holes,is discussed.
