By G. K. Batchelor

First released in 1967, Professor Batchelor's vintage paintings remains to be one of many most effective texts on fluid dynamics. His cautious presentation of the underlying theories of fluids continues to be well timed and appropriate, even at present of virtually unlimited computing device strength. This reissue guarantees new iteration of graduate scholars reviews the splendor of Professor Batchelor's writing.

1) for different choices of the meaning of the intensity e are known as constitutive relations, since they express physical properties of the material concerned. 3) A solid with a regular and anisotropic crystal structure is a notable exception, and heat is observed in some crystals to spread more rapidly in certain directions than in others. But exceptions among fluids, which do not have a permanent molecular arrangement, are rare. 6] 33 at all points of the mediurn. 4) where V is the volume of the enclosed region.

It will in fact be sufficient for our purposes to know that the second law of thermodynamics implies the existence of another extensive property of the fluid in equilibrium (even for systems with more than two independent parameters of state), termed the entropy, such that, in a reversible transition from an equilibrium state to another, neighbouring, equilibrium state, the increase in entropy is proportional to the heat given to the fluid, and that the constant of proportionality, itself a function of state, depends only on the temperature and can be chosen as the reciprocal of the temperature.
