Thermodynamics and Energy


A New Perspective in Thermodynamics: The Energy-Entropy Principle

Authors: Rodrigo de Abreu

In this paper, through the criticism of the paradigmatic view of thermodynamics, we aim at showing a new perspective attained in this matter. The generalization of heat as internal energy (generalization of the kinetic energy concept of heat) permits the generalization of the Kelvin postulate: "It is impossible, without another effect, to convert internal energy into work" (no reference to heat or to a heat reservoir).
