  4. Conclusion

Thermodynamics is the part of physics that studies the phenomena related to labor, energy, heat and entropy, and the laws that govern the energy conversion processes. Although we all have a sense of what is energy, it is very difficult to make a precise definition for it. In fact physics accepts energy as primitive concept without definition, that is, only characterizing it.
It is well known that a substance which consists of a set of molecules called particles. The properties of the substance depend, of course, the behavior of these particles.

From a macroscopic view of the system for the study, which does not require knowledge of the behavior of individual particles, developed the so-called classical thermodynamics. It allows to address in an easy and direct way to solving our problems. A more elaborate approach is based on average behavior of large groups of particles, is called statistical thermodynamics.
functions:

The thermodynamics determines the direction in which various physical and chemical processes will occur. It also allows to determine the relationships between the various properties of a substance. However it does not work with the microstructure of the substance model and is not able to provide details of it, but since some data are known, by the method of classical thermodynamics, other properties may be determined.
