The 1st Law of thermodynamics is a restatement of the law of conservation of energy.

It is related to the 2nd law of thermodynamics

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

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

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

There are four laws of thermodynamics;Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics.First Law of Thermodynamics.Second Law of Thermodynamics.Third Law of Thermodynamics.

Yes - the 1st law of thermodynamics is often referred to as "the law of conservation of energy". They are the same thing.

cellular respiration is an example of 2nd law of thermodynamics

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").

There is no commonly accepted law by that name, as far as I know. Two important laws about energy are the First Law of Thermodynamics and the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

The first law of thermodynamics states that you can't create or destroy energy. The second law of thermodynamics has been formulated in several ways; one of them is that useful energy is constantly being converted to useless energy - in other words, with respect to energy, there are irreversible processes in nature.

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.

Transfer of energy is explained by 1st law of thermodynamics. According to first law of thermodynamics , energy can be transferred or transformed form one form or the other but the total quanta of energy remains constant. The total energy in the universe is constant.

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.
