Abstract : The purpose of this report is to introduce the reader to the concept of energy via the previously learned concepts of reversibility and the second law of thermodynamics. Energy is first defined in general and then evaluated for energies of flowing streams, closed systems, heat transfer and work transfer. Some applications are given and then a review with application of combustion principles and the third law of thermodynamics follows. The paper concludes with some comments on the energetic effectiveness of systems. jg
