Firstly, there is the contribution made by Kelvin to the formulation of the Laws of Thermodynamics, both personal and in the content of the scientific communications exchanged with other workers, such as Joule and Clausius.
It is to be noted that for the case of the sphere the Clausius

Irritated, he flips through the text, opens it to the Clausius Statement and reads a definition that might make more sense:
As Christensen's note indicates, Rudolf Clausius (1822-1888) played a major role in the formulation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which calculates that the universe will eventually die a "Heat Death" when all its energy is used up.
Further work by Clausius and William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) demonstrated that, in the process of converting differences in heat into work, energy in the form of heat is irreversibly lost.
Although the expressions of the second law of thermodynamics between Clausius and Kelvin are different, the essence of their expressions is the same, that is, "the process occurred in the isolated system always makes the entropy value of the entire system increasing".
La primera esta relacionada con el enfoque mas antiguo empleado principalmente en la primera mitad del siglo XIX por Carnot, Clausius, William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), Robert Mayer y Joule, entre otros, ha sido la termodinamica clasica.
VictoriaWindle found the act of cutting someone's hand off as sick, while Clausius pointed out that Americans are arming the militants in Syria who cut people's hands off.
