There are four laws of thermodynamics;

  • Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics.
  • First Law of Thermodynamics.
  • Second Law of Thermodynamics.
  • Third Law of Thermodynamics.

Scientific rules and laws concerning thermodynamics.

The Second Law of Thermodynamics is equivalent to the Law of Conservation of Energy. The Law of Conservation of Matter is not stated in the laws of Thermodynamics.

Bear in mind that in science, all laws are part of theories. Thermodynamics has 3 laws, and is also a theory.

There are three laws of thermodynamics, not inlcluding the understood fourth law. Thermodynamics is the study of how energy is transferred in a system.

Not exactly. The first law of thermodynamics, i.e. the law of conservation of energy, also accounts for heat as one of the many forms that energy can take. There is no one law called "the law of thermodynamics", but there are several "Laws of Thermodynamics" (note the plural form "LAWS").

None. The laws of thermodynamics describe physical phenomena. The first one is the same as "if you put a pan on a hot stove, it will get warmer." Such laws of physics simply describe reality.

That is a consequence of the second and third laws of thermodynamics.

No one has yet documented a case where a chemical reaction does not obey the laws of thermodynamics - so - yes - all the chemical reactions will obey the laws of thermodynamics. On a philosophic note: since no exceptions to the theories that constitute thermodynamics have been observed, we consider them "laws". Should we ever find an exception, we will have to modify the theories to craft new rules that will then be considered "laws". That's how science works.

Basically four: the zeroeth law, the first law, the second law and the third law.

No. The laws of thermodynamics were fully operationallong before anybody knew anything about math.

The understanding of the laws of thermodynamics (natural phenomena) made it possible for engineers to design and build air conditioners (technological products).

Yes, it can. Check thermodynamics laws.

No, perpetual motion is prohibited by the laws of thermodynamics.

Biology is immune from the laws of thermodynamics because biology has a higher law, a superior principle, the submission of all to Evolution, from which flows a continual stream of order and, when necessary, heat.
