Thermodynamics: Energy Transfer (Heat & Work)

Thermodynamics studies the changes in the total energy of a system. This is directly related to energy transfer from one system to another system, or a system to its surroundings. When dealing with a closed system energy transfer occurs across the boundaries of the system. There are two types of energy transfer that can occur in a closed system, and they are energy transferred by heat and energy transferred by work. Energy transfer only occurs across the boundaries of the system, or a fluid flowing through the system. Once the energy has been transferred it becomes part of the internal energy of the system or the environment.
