Abstract

The values associated to Clausius transformations are obtained through an analysis different to that of Clausius inasmuch it does not introduce any assumption or condition as to what the combined value of the transformations in a reversible cyclical process should be. The values thus obtained allow for the identification of the flaw in Clausius work leading to the inconsistency discussed in part I of this series.
Keywords: quality and value of a transformation; Clausius flaw quality and value of a transformation; Clausius flaw
