Second Thermodynamics?

Postby JaeHoCho1B » Sun Jan 22, 2017 6:54 pm

Hello classmates! How do we know when we are able to use first or second thermodyanimcs on a problem or on a quiz problem? Thank you for your time!

I believe the second law of thermodynamics has more to do with entropy while the first law of thermodynamics has more to do with enthalpy. The laws are not equations however, so specific equations having to deal with heat, work, enthalpy, and internal energy will have to be known as well as the laws.
