Definition of Thermodynamics:
Thermodynamics is a scientific field that deals with the transfer of heat and work, as well as the resulting changes in the properties of the substance being studied. The substance is usually isolated from its surroundings to determine its properties.
- System: A system refers to a collection of matter that can be identified within certain boundaries. It can either be open or closed, depending on whether or not mass transfer occurs across the boundary.
- Surrounding: The term surroundings typically refer to the particles of matter that exist outside of the system and can be affected by any changes that occur within the system. The surroundings themselves can also form another system.
- Boundry: A boundary is a surface, either physical or imaginary, that separates the system from its surroundings.
