Abstract: In an earlier paper we deduced, using measure theoretic concepts, forms for the first and second laws of thermodynamics on surfaces which are distinguished by area-continuous and time-dependent energy and entropy. In that paper we avoided making constitutive assumptions since we sought expressions for the physical laws which were, indeed, independent of particular material assumptions.
