Thermodynamics

Thermodynamics has the heart at the relationship between heat and mechanical work. The study of heat and its relationship with other forms energy and how this relationship relate to the properties of matter is called thermodynamics.

The laws of thermodynamics provide the key explanation to different phenomena in thermodynamics. The thermodynamics laws we learn below will help you understand the heart of thermodynamics.
