As we learnt in 

First law of Thermodynamics -

Heat imported to a body in is in general used to increase internal energy and work done against external pressure.

- wherein

dQ= dU+dW

 

and

 

Second Law of Thermodynamics -

Planck's Statement

- wherein

It is impossible to extract heat from single body and convert whole into work.

 

and

 

Entropy -

It is a measure of disorder of molecular motion of a system.

- wherein

Greater is disorder greater is entropy

dS= \frac{dQ}{T}

 

The concept of entropy is introduced in second law of thermodynamics.

First law dealt with internal energy, work and heat energy.

It is a statement of first law of thermodynamics.
