  • 8. 
    First Law of Thermodynamics! 
    • A. 

      E lost = E gained Energy cannot be created of destroyed but only converted from one form to another.

    • B. 

      Equilibrium is always reached when a system is left alone. (It changed to its maximum entropy)

    • C. 

      If two systems are in thermal equilibrium with a third system, they must be in thermal equilibrium with each other.

  • 9.
