Find out what these two principal laws explain about the way energy can and cannot be used throughout the entire Universe.
- The 1st law of thermodynamics states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed.
- The 2nd law of thermodynamics states that it is not possible to convert one form of energy to another with 100% efficiency.
- The Universe is a self-contained system and therefore has a finite amount of energy.
- An asteroid that collided with Earth 65 million years ago transferred energy rather than creating new energy.
