Traditionally, natural philosophy developed out of a want to extend the potency of early steam engines, significantly through the work of French scientist Nicolas Leonard physicist (1824) United Nations agency believed that engine potency was the key that would facilitate France win the warfare.[1] Scots-Irish scientist Lord Kelvin was the primary to formulate a succinct definition of natural philosophy in 1854 that expressed, "Thermo-dynamics is that the subject of the relation of warmth to forces acting between contiguous components of bodies, and therefore the relation of warmth to electrical agency."


Thermodynamics is the subdivided of the physics that can deals with the energy, heat, work and also temperature and they can also have the relation with the radiation, physical and as well as chemical energy, and these can be specifically involved into the four laws of energy.

Thermodynamics which can be applied to the broad range of topics that are involved in science and also in engineering, the most effective part is physical chemistry, chemical engineering and also mechanical engineering; this can also be involved in other parts of the systemic energies.

In this concept of thermodynamics heat is the upmost priority for the energy and matter and that heat or matter can transferred in between the two systems.

As we all know that heat cannot be created or destroyed, and it can be move to one place to another place with the same energy. With these the electrical energy can be converted into the magnetic energy or it can be called as the radiation also.

Temperature where the matter that depends on the number of molecules in the motion that is according to the energy or system. The more the molecules move in the system the more the energy and temperature is the more the quantity the more the heat transfer.

It is measured with the average of kinetic energy and particles in the particular matter and that can be expressed in the terms of degrees, as commonly we know that for temperature we can measure with the Celsius that can be based on the boiling points, there is one more value called Fahrenheit that is based on the melting points and boiling points and also freezing temperatures like 32 F, 520 F.

The heat which is required to incline the temperature for a certain substance by the particular amount of matter those terms called as specific heat. This can be measured by the unit called calories per gram per kelvin for this calorie defined as the amount of energy that is required to raise the temperature is 1 gram.

One more important point is Thermal conductivity in which the heat which passes through the material is specified and that can be expressed in terms of degree of unit per meter.
