Stylized Animation Explains Feynman’s Building Blocks of Thermodynamics

As part of the Royal Institution‘s annual science-themed advent calendar they shared a stylized animation that explains physicist Richard Feynman‘s building block analogy for the first law of thermodynamics.

How Richard Feynman’s classic analogy of building blocks explains the conservation of energy. Professor Andrea Sella recalls Feynman’s illustration of the first law of thermodynamics with a child’s building blocks and wily mother.
