Thermodynamics is a branch of science dealing with heat and temperature and their relation to other forms of energy. It is a result of man’s constant effort in converting heat to work. The relation between this forms of energy is governed by four laws of thermodynamics. These laws of thermodynamics are deduced by logical reasoning and experimentation. Thermodynamics has evolved and now it is an essential tools used in practically every branch of physics, chemistry and even biology. Thermodynamics tells us how different engines work. Engines that include steam engine, internal combustion engine, turbines, etc. Thermodynamics tell and helps us with the design and optimization.
