Chapter 18
1. State the three laws of thermodynamics.
a. 1st Law – Energy can be converted from one form to another but energy cannot
be created or destroyed.
b. 2nd Law –The entropy of the universe increases in a spontaneous process and
remains unchanged in an equilibrium process.

zero of temperature.
2. Provide several examples of spontaneous processes.
