\u2022All efforts to devise a process for the continuous
conversion of heat completely into work or into
mechanical or electrical energy has failed. Conversion
efficiencies do not exceed about 40%.
\u2022The flow of heat between two bodies always takes place
from the hotter to the cooler body, and never in the
\u2022No apparatus can operate in such a way that its
only effect is to convert heat absorbed by a system
completely into work done by the system.
\u2013It is impossible by a cyclic process to convert the heat
absorbed by a system completely into work done by the
\u2022No process is possible which consists solely into
the transfer of heat from one temperature level to a
