1Running head: THERMODYNAMICThermodynamicInstitution affiliation:Date:THERMODYNAMICThermodynamics is the investigation of energy, the change of energy to differentstructures and the capacity of energy to do work. The expression "Thermodynamics" start fromtwo root words "thermo" which implies heat and "dynamic" which implies power.Thermodynamics laws describes the relationship between heat, thermal energy, as well as otherforms of energy. It also describes how energy affect matter. The first law of thermodynamics(law of conservation of energy) expresses that the aggregate increment in the energy of a systemis equivalent to the expansion in thermal energy in addition to the work done on the system. Thisexpresses that heat is a type of energy and is in this way subject to the standard of conservation.In different words this first law expresses that energy cannot be created nor destroyed. Thesecond law of thermodynamic commonly known as the Law of Increased Entropy. "Entropy" isexplained as amount of unusable energy inside a closed or isolated system. This law expressesthat energy cannot be transformed from a colder to a more blazing body inside a system withoutn
