Unformatted text preview: c. First law of thermodynamics — The change in stored energy of a system equals the net energy added to the system as heat and work. d. Second law of thermodynamics — The entropy of any isolated system cannot decrease during any process between equilibrium states. e. Principle of angular momentum — The net torque acting on a system is equal to the rate of change of angular momentum of the system....
