Thermodynamics, Life and Universe

Thermodynamics was my favourite subject when I was in college. The subject felt close to something I can relate to. I did not know why I like it better than others, I liked fluid dynamics too but thermodynamics was always my top one. Reading the book Einsteins Fridge did rekindled that love of that subject.

Here’s a quote from the book.

At its heart are three concepts energy, entropy, and temperature. Without an understanding of these and the laws they obey, all science physics, chemistry, and biology would be incoherent. The laws of thermodynamics govern everything from the behavior of atoms to that of living cells, from the engines that power our world to the black hole at the center of our galaxy.

Thermodynamics explains why we must eat and breathe, how the lights come on, and how the universe will end.
