What Is Thermodynamics
thermodynamics is the branch of physics that deal with the relationships between heat and other forms of energy .
Heat is an energy that can be converted from one thing to the other for example a stove and a pot with water in it or a volcano .
Thermodynamics is the branch between heat and other forms of energy, it describes how thermal energy is converted to and from other forms of energy and how it affects matter.
Thermodynamics involves measuring this energy which can be "exceedingly complicated" according to David McKee , who is a professor at a southern state university called Missouri . He states today that " the systems that we study in thermodynamics consists of vary large numbers of atom or molecules interacting in complicated ways .but if these systems meet the right criteria they can be described with a very small number of measurements or numbers " .
thermodynamics is concerned with several properties making one of then heat . Heat is an energy that can be transferred between substances or systems due to a temperature difference between them . We cant destroy it or create it but we can move it from one place to another such as moving a hot pot from the stove to the sink or a like a sparkler that children play with .
According to energy education the amount of heat transferred by a substance depends on the speed and number of atoms or molecules in motion . But, according to the american heritage dictionary temperature is " a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a sample of matter , expressed in terms of units or degrees designed on a standard scale " so in other words the average measure of kinetic energy of particles on a standard scale .
