Universal Laws

Universal Laws of Thermodynamics

1. The 1st law.  Energy is neither created or destroyed, it only changes from one form to another. The Law of the Conservation of Energy.

2. The 2nd Law. All things have a tendency to move towards lower states of equilibrium, rather than high states of equilibrium. All atoms and molecules tends towards randomness rather than order and this randomness increases over time.  The Law of Entropy.

3. The 3rd law is the Law of Absolute Zero, which states that as energy decreases the change in energy also decreases.

Newtons laws of motion.

1. Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

2. The relationship between an object’s mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their symbols being displayed in slant boldfont); in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector.

3. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
