First Law 
A statement of the conservation of energy in a thermodynamic system.
Net energy crossing a system boundary equals the energy change
inside the system. Heat (Q) is energy transferred due to a temperature
difference and is considered positive if it is inward or added to the
system. 
Closed Thermodynamic System 
DU = Q  W DU = change in system internal energy Q = net heat crossing boundary (Q is positive if heat added to system) W = net work done by or on the system (W is positive if the system does work)
