Energy Conversion and the Second Law
In the preceding sections we have evaluated the second law with respect to its ability for the description of basic equilibration processes, e.g., the equilibration of temperature, the direction of heat transfer, the dissipation of kinetic energy, and friction losses in gears. Now we shall apply thermodynamic analysis to conversion processes between work and heat.
