Thermodynamics : four laws that move the universe

Grossman, Jeffrey C., (teacher., Teacher). Teaching Company. (Added Author).

Summary: What is heat? What is temperature? What is energy? What is time? When we look beneath the surface of these everyday terms to learn how scientists understand them, we encounter a realm of fundamental processes that rule the universe.
