We adapted the thermodynamics equation for energy generation in a diesel engine in modeling energy generation in human body by the human cells by doing a thorough study on both systems and saw that the process of energy generation is the same in them. We equally saw that the stages involved in energy generation are similar. The adapted equations were properly modified to explain our current study. The resulting models were then solved both for the steady and non-steady cases.

Keywords: Thermodynamics, diesel engine, human cell, duhamel’s principle
