Thermodynamics, the branch of physics concerned with the description of macroscopic bodies, heat exchange and the conversion of different forms of energy is based on four laws: the zeroth law, which states that bodies in thermal contact reach a state of thermal equilibrium, the first law, which postulates the energy conservation and establishes the way in which different forms of energy transform into each-other, the second law, which states that the entropy increases or stays constant in time…
