at if the first law of thermodynamics was true, but the second law was not? How would the world be different?

Interpretation Introduction


To determine whether the world would be different if the fist law of thermodynamic is true and the second law is false.

Concept Introduction:

The law of thermodynamic consist of four laws, that gives the temperature, entropy and energy which are the fundamental qualities of physics, with the thermal equilibrium in a system of thermodynamic.


The first law of thermodynamics states that the energy can neither be created nor be destroyed. The second law of thermodynamics defines that the entropy increases in a system that is isolated. Both the laws are important in the terms of physics world. And moreover the thermodynamics predicts the flow of heat which directed from increased to decreased temperature.

The second law defines the entropy which is not randomly measured. This uncertain measurement gives the distribution and flow of energy. If the second law of thermodynamics is not obeyed in any process, the reaction will not take place spontaneously as the entropy will not have an increase. The feasibility of any reaction cannot be determined and the amount of energy that is used in the process cannot be identified...
