Basic Laws of Thermodynamics and the Influence of Vitalistic Conception on Learning of the High School Students About Matter Cycle and Energy Flow

Fulya Oztas

Abstract:
This study analysis whether the basic laws of thermodynamics or vitalistic conception is effective in explanation of the matter cycle and energy flow in an ecological system by the high school students. The findings of the study suggest that although the students know the physical and chemical laws about matter cycle and energy flow as well as the second law of thermodynamics on theoretical basis, they are faced with some difficulties arising from the vitalistic conception in applying to the biological facts.
