What are the first and second laws of thermodynamics?

The first law states that neither matter nor energy can be created or destroyed The second law states that everything tends toward disorder ie. falls apart, fades, withers, erodes, etc. I like the versions: 1st: You can't get something for nothing 2nd: Not only that, you can't even break even


What will happan if heat is not presentas a sources of anegery?

Heat can only heat things. Heat cannot be harnessed to do meaningful work, that would break the second law of thermodynamics. So to answer your question... nothing.


What will likely happen to most molecules over time?

The second law of thermodynamics states that in a closed system entropy will increase meaning that complex things should break down into simpler ones therefore how can life function?

Neither living organisms nor Earth nor even our solar system are closed systems. The minor entropy decreases caused by life processes are more than made up for by the entropy increases by the functioning of the sun, of the absorption in the oceans, etc. Entropy is countered by the influx of solar energy and the gravitational field of (in this case) the Earth. This influx of solar energy makes the Earth not a closed system. The gravitational field was never considered in the formation of the laws of thermodynamics (neither were magnetic or electro-static fields for that matter). By the second law - stars and planets should never form - and clearly they have.


In thermodynamics what is meant by you can't get out of the game?

You can't get ahead (1st law - conservation of energy - you can't get more energy out than you put in) You can't even break even (2nd law - 100% efficiency is not possible - some energy will always be lost as heat to the surroundings, thus increasing the overall entropy of the universe) You can't get out of the game (no real process is reversible)
