Based on the idea of that particle decay represents nothing but a kind ofthermodynamic process due to its spontaneity, we here explore a new kind ofheat engine: particle Carnot engine PCE, which satisfies Carnot’s theorem.The result shows that any single particle carries its quantized intrinsicentropy, and the total entropy never decreases for any decay process. Particlethermodynamic laws analogous to the usual ones are proposed, among which themomentum conservation principle is specially introduced that will determine theirreversibility of particle decay. Moreover, we also develop the operationaldefinitions of particle state functions, including Boltzmann relationship,which can be used to discuss the thermodynamic properties of particle objects.Thus, our study can provide a new theoretical framework to investigate particlephysics.
