What is the first form of the 2nd law of Thermodynamics? In any transformation of energy there is always a decrease in the usable energy.
What is the 2nd form of the 2nd law of Thermodynamics? Heat can only move from hot to cold.
What is the 3rd form of the 2nd law of thermodynamics? In a closed system disorder increases.
What is the most plentiful non-renewable resource? coal

What is heat engine? Any device that converts heat energy into michanical energy.
Is heat engine efficient? no
When energy gets lost what is it lost as? heat
What is system efficency? energy that orginally comes from coal
After going through the power plant how much energy is used as heat? 2/3 of it
What is an example of system efficiency? a incondesent light bulb.
What is an example of energy conversion? When you mine, crush, and transport coal.
