FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS

This law, derived from the principle of conservation of energy, is expressed as &#144E = Q - W, where &#144E is the inside change in energy, Q is the heat the environment transfers into the system, and W is the work the system does. In another words, it means that: The inside energy in a system isolated from another systems remains constant The change in the inside energy of a system that is not isolated is equal to the energy that crosses its boundariesinto or out of another systemsIt can be further extrapolated to mean that despite all the processesgoing on in the universe, the total energy contained in the universeremains constant.
