"Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only be converted from one form to another..."

Who is credited with this law? Does anyone know? Is there a "Father" of thermodynamics?



Thanks!!!

James Joule is credited with the first law.

Sadi Carnot is considered the Father of Thermodynamics. You may know of him from the Carnot heat engine and the Carnot cycle (from which follows the second law of thermodynamics).
