    Yes, Energy balance isn't directly because heat transfer is totally based on second law of thermodynamics .2nd law of thermo is a direction law ,so in directional law we have to determine the direction of heat. 2nd law also a qualitative law not a quantitative ,its tell about the quality of heat.In 1st law we talk about the quantity of heat.
