Laws of Thermodynamics

The four Laws of Thermodynamics, though generally the 'zeroth' law is excluded due to it being a matter-of-fact statement, dictate how two (thermodynamic) systems which are in equilibrium with a third system will also have equilibrium with one another (Zeroth), that the total amount of energy in any isolated system is conserved (First), the certainty of entropy increasing in an isolated system such as the universe (Second), and lastly dictates a defined constant limit of entropy (Third), known as Absolute Zero, or 0K.

I hate mathematics. This article is an attempt at shortly describing real science which can be sourced and referenced in real research. While it is difficult for me to accurately describe complex topics, especially with my limited background in physics of all kinds, an attempt is made to simplify it enough and both further my own understanding via repetition and correction. Please excuse any errors in syntax or bias, typically I am unaware of every possible interpretation of many of the more argued subjects and tend towards ones I have studied more, rather than any explicit following of it.
  • Anyone can help me make these more accurate by sending me an email, available on the page Feli. I appreciate any input or perspective, or simply to make my definitions more precise in relation to my softer science extensions of this.
