Thermodynamics: Clausius Statement

The Clausius Statement is a formal definition of how refrigerators and heat pumps relate to the 2nd law.

"It is impossible to construct a device that operates in a cycle and produces no effect other than the transfer of heat from a lower-temperature body to a higher-temperature body."

This statement basically is saying that work must be put into a device such as a compressor to allow heat to transfer from a lower-temperature to a higher-temperature environment.
