Introduction to the Clausius Inequality Lesson
In Chapter 6, we:

Introduced
Clausius
andKelvinPlanck
Statements of the2nd Law
 Applied both statements of the
2nd Law
tothermodynamic cycles
.  Showed that the
Kelvin
andIdeal Gas Temperature Scales
were identicalthermodynamic temperature scales
.  Studied the
Carnot Cycle
and itsefficiency
.  Used the
Carnot Efficiency
to show that energy has quality as well as quantity.
In Chapter 7, we:
 Apply the
2nd Law
to the individual processes that might make up a thermodynamic cycle.  Introduce a new thermodynamic property called
entropy
.  Show how this new property can help us analyze both individual processes and cycles.
 Investigate how
entropy
is related to other thermodynamic properties.  Apply what we learn to some very special types of processes:
polytropic
processes andisentropic
processes.
We begin our study of
entropy
by considering theClausius Inequality
