## Homework Statement

To show that ##\rho(p',s)>\rho(p',s') => (\frac{\partial\rho}{\partial s})_p\frac{ds}{dz}<0##

where ##p=p(z)##, ##p'=p(z+dz)##, ##s'=s(z+dz)##, ##s=s(z)##

## Homework Equations

I have no idea how to approach this. I'm thinking functional derivatives, taylor expansions, but if someone could please give me a clue where to start.

## The Attempt at a Solution

as above.

many thanks in advance.
