Homework Help: Two (equivalent?) versions of Clausius-Duhem inequality?

  1. Oct 30, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hello everyone,
    I have a problem to solve, which I found hard and so looked for help on the web. Finally found this:
    https://books.google.co.uk/books?id...E#v=onepage&q=clausius-duhem inviscid&f=false
    which is great as on page 183 is the EXACT question I am supposed to solve. It's not fully shown on google but I can do the rest.

    There a a few differences:
    I have


    rather than
    T=T(ρ,Θ,gradΘ) etc. as in the link above.

    The Clausius-Duhem inequality shown throughout the book has terms a term


    in it. We learned this differently in class: Our inequality read the exact same as in the link above but had a term



    I would really like to understand why these two forms are equivalent before just using the form I found on the web and assuming it's correct. Is this to do with T vs. T?

    I feel like such a beginner (which I am!) :D

    Thank you so much for any advice!!
