Abstract: Carnot's reversible cycle net value was determined using the previously derived values for the transformations there occurring. A negative net value is obtained as a result, in contradiction with current thermodynamics, Clausius analysis based position that the net value for such a cycle is zero. The entropy function is introduced and the new criterion's for spontaneity, reversibility and equilibrium are advanced.
Keywords: Clausius; cyclical processes; entropy; negentropy; umbral efficiency
