What is the industrial application of first law of thermodynamics?

The First Law of Thermodynamics is another name for the Law of Conservation of Energy.

energy can be transformed in different ways but can never be created or destroyed

That would be the First Law of Thermodynamics. It is the same as Conservation of Energy.

Application of first law of thermodynamics is in engine, refrigerator,heat pump.

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 states that energy cannot be destroyed or created but is always conserved.

It always applies. There are no known processes in which the Law of Conservation of Energy (i.e., the First Law of Thermodynamics) doesn't apply.

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").

That's related to the First Law of Thermodynamics - the Law of Conservation of Energy.

The First Law of Thermodynamics is a restatement of the Principle or Law of Conservation of Energy.

The first law of thermodynamics is that energy can not be created or destroyed but it can be changed from one form to another. Cells USE energy, but do not create it themselves. So yes, they do follow the first law of thermodynamics.

Energy can't be created or destroyed. The First Law of Thermodynamics is also known as the Law of Conservation of Energy.

The First Law of Thermodynamics is the Law of Conservation of Energy - in other words, the total amount of energy in a closed system remains constant.

The First Law of Thermodynamics is the Law of Conservation of Energy. Just different names for the same thing.

That's the same as the Law of Conservation of Energy.
