Popularly described as the "Father of Thermodynamics", Sadi Carnot was the man behind the first successful theoretical account of heat engine, today known as the Carnot cycle. A man with a mission, Carnot did not let the unrest and instability of his early life overshadow his living. He is accounted for concepts such as Carnot efficiency, Carnot theorem and the Carnot heat engine amongst others. His book, Reflections on the Motive Power of Fire, laid the foundations for the second law of thermodynamics. Carnot’s concept of the idealized heat engine led to the development of a thermodynamic system that could be quantified, a key success that enabled many of the future discoveries that lay ahead.
