Until now we were devoting our attention to the formulation of the basic principles. In Chaps. 2 and 3 we concentrated on the formulation of physical laws representing the conservation laws for mass, momentum, angular momentum and energy as well as the balance statement of entropy. These laws represent the basis of classical physics. They were formulated for one-component continua which are material bodies formed by one kind of material. Later, these laws will be extended to multi-component systems in order to treat also mixtures.
