Previously, we attributed displacements, stresses, strains, temperature, entropy etc. to a material point or an infinitesimal material volume. In many cases of practical interest additional parameters reflecting the presence of the additional material/chemical constituents , e.g. ions, atoms, molecules etc., are required.
