Yes - it is correct. That is why a violation of the 2nd law has never been observed.

## Related Questions There are four laws of thermodynamics;Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics.First Law of Thermodynamics.Second Law of Thermodynamics.Third Law of Thermodynamics.  The 1st Law of thermodynamics is a restatement of the law of conservation of energy.  What is the industrial application of first law of thermodynamics? That would be the First Law of Thermodynamics. It is the same as Conservation of Energy.   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"). The First Law of Thermodynamics is another name for the Law of Conservation of Energy. Thermodynamic cycle is based on 2nd law of thermodynamics. As stated by the expert: The First Law of Thermodynamics IS the Law of Conservation of Energy. The Second Law of Thermodynamics is not directly related; however, it provides additional restrictions, as to what can, and what cannot, be achieved. The First Law of Thermodynamics is a restatement of the Principle or Law of Conservation of Energy.  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.    "Unavailable for doing work" is related to the Second Law of Thermodynamics.  Thermal equilibrium is the subject of the Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics. Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics. The "zeroth law" states that if two systems are at the same time in thermal equilibrium with a third system, they are in thermal equilibrium with each other. Application of first law of thermodynamics is in engine, refrigerator,heat pump.  In the second law of thermodynamics, heat is converted and a good portion of it is lost. According to the second law of Thermodynamics, the amount of usable energy will continuously decrease.According to the second law of Thermodynamics, the amount of usable energy will continuously decrease.According to the second law of Thermodynamics, the amount of usable energy will continuously decrease.According to the second law of Thermodynamics, the amount of usable energy will continuously decrease.
