Thermodynamics is a lot like religion ... a lot of people appeal to its authority, but haven't the slightest notion what they are talking about. [David L Heiserman]

Thermodynamics is the branch of physical science concerned with heat and its relation to other forms of energy and work. It defines macroscopic variables (such as temperature, entropy, and pressure) that describe average properties of material bodies and radiation, and explains how they are related and by what laws they change with time. ~ Wikipedia

Statistical mechanics is a branch of physics that applies probability theory, which contains mathematical tools for dealing with large populations, to the study of the thermodynamic behavior of systems composed of a large number of particles. ~ Wikipedia
