The essence of macroscopic quantities in solid mechanics can be grasped by expressing these quantities in terms of kinematic and mechanical quantities of atoms. In this paper, a method is proposed for obtaining the microscopic definitions of internal forces of continua such as stress, higher-order stresses and heat flux. Moreover, the relation between higher-order stress power and heat flux is discussed expressing the first law of thermodynamics with microscopic quantities in the mesodomain. Comparing heat flux with higher-order stress power, it is clarified that the divergence of heat flux is equivalent to the total of each order power due to higher-order stresses.
