Answer #1#


Clausius Statement from the second law of thermodynamics states that:

It is impossible to design a device which works on a cycle and produce no other effect other than heat transfer from a cold body to a hot body.

That is, heat transfer can only occur spontaneously in the direction of temperature decrease. For example, we cannot construct a refrigerator that operates without any work input.
