Thermodynamics city! The Standard Deviants start with the first law of thermodynamics. Then, naturally, the second law of thermodynamics. Next, we'll look at heat engines, an application of the second law. The last topic we'll cover is entropy, the measure of disorder of a system. The study of thermodynamics (from the Greek for heat and power) involves the conversion of energy to useful forms of power. These concepts powered the Industrial Revolution! A lot of information is included in this video. Topics include the three laws of thermodynamics; heat engines; work processes such as isovolumetric, isobaric, and adiabatic; heat sources and sinks; and finally the concept of entropy—tricky at best.
