ENERGY ON EARTH Thermodynamics, simple stated is the study of energy. Energy is found in many different forms, and there are ways in which we change energy from one form to another. The Laws of Thermodynamics sets guidelines in which these conversions may exist. The Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics states that if two systems are thermally equal to a third system they are also equal thermally to each other. The First Law of Thermodynamics states that while energy can be converted from one form to another form, the amount of energy in the universe must remain constant; therefore energy cannot be created or destroyed. The second Law of Thermodynamics says that in all conversions of energy the available energy of the state must always be lower than it was initially (Esc.fsu.edu, 2015). Energy, in some form or another is needed in order to survive. You most likely have no idea how often you use some form of energy. Energy is used for light, when you get cold an electric heater will convert electric energy

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
