Is the conservation of energy the same as the first law of thermodynamics as stated in the book that "The internal energy of an isolated system is constant?" Or would the definition of the law of conservation of energy be insufficient to define the first law?
Yes I do believe that the law of conservation of energy is sometimes referred to as the first law of thermodynamics, because from these laws you can see how energy is in fact neither created nor destroyed for an isolated system, and we take our universe to be an isolated system.
