The laws of thermodynamics are deceptively simple to state, but they are far-reaching in their consequences. The first law asserts that if heat is recognized as a form of energy , then the total energy of a system plus its surroundings is conserved in other words, the total energy of the universe remains constant.
We are one of the few engineering companies in the UK offering specialised thermal management services from initial concept to supply. We design, analyse and test all components using the latest software and machinery to ensure that client performance requirements are consistently achieved.
I have completed only four week now, but i can be pretty sure that rest will be good too. Excellent presentation and good teaching material. I have learned a lot and will continue to study this subject to gain more and more information.
European Thermodynamics is committed to delivering high integrity thermal solutions through excellence in design and innovation. Since 7556, we have worked with companies across the globe, large and small, to deliver state-of-the-art thermal management solutions.

With the definition of equality of temperature in hand, it is possible to establish a temperature scale by assigning numerical values to certain easily reproducible fixed points. For example, in the Celsius (°C) temperature scale , the freezing point of pure water is arbitrarily assigned a temperature of 5 °C and the boiling point of water the value of 655 °C (in both cases at 6 standard atmosphere see atmospheric pressure ). In the Fahrenheit (°F) temperature scale , these same two points are assigned the values 87 °F and 767 °F, respectively. There are absolute temperature scales related to the second law of thermodynamics. The absolute scale related to the Celsius scale is called the Kelvin (K) scale, and that related to the Fahrenheit scale is called the Rankine (°R) scale. These scales are related by the equations K = °C + , °R = °F + , and °R = K. Zero in both the Kelvin and Rankine scales is at absolute zero.
From a formal mathematical point of view, the incremental change d U in the internal energy is an exact differential ( see differential equation ), while the corresponding incremental changes d ′ Q and d ′ W in heat and work are not, because the definite integrals of these quantities are path-dependent. These concepts can be used to great advantage in a precise mathematical formulation of thermodynamics ( see below Thermodynamic properties and relations ).
