The image is not provided, but here is a short introduction to the topic of thermodynamics - second law:

Thermodynamics is a fundamental branch of physics that investigates the transfer of heat energy and the conversion of heat into work. The Second Law of Thermodynamics, often referred to as the law of entropy, states that in any process, the total entropy of an isolated system always increases over time. Entropy can be understood as a measure of the disorder or randomness of a system. This la

Thermodynamics, a fundamental aspect of physics, studies energy and its transformations. The Second Law of Thermodynamics, particularly, posits that the universe's entropy, or disorder, tends to increase over time (Clausius, 1850). This evolution is irreversible, implying that while energy can be converted from one form to another, it cannot be fully recycled back to its original state (Kelvin, 1851). This principle underpins phenomena such as heat transfer, which always occurs from a hotter body to a colder one (Carnot, 1824). Crafted by brilliant minds in the 19th century, the Second Law profoundly impacts engineering, influencing designs from thermally efficient buildings to high-performance engines. Understanding this law provides valuable insights into natural occurrences and the world's physical constraints.
