    i want to understand physics as follows

    1)Physics is the study of nature

    2)mechanics is the study of response of materials(solid & fluid) to the action of forces(changes)

    3)mechanics of rigid bodies assumes the material to be rigid is the study of forces acting of solids

    4)mechanics of elastic bodies is otherwise called mechanics of materials or strength of materials is the study of response of solids to the action of forces

    With the above knowledge i want to understand

    1)thermo dynamics is the study of response of what to what?

    2)other thermo dynamic terms -study of what to what etc?
