    Passive voice in a question or relative clause

    Hello,

    For example I ask somebody "What is meant by a Perpetuum mobile?"
    So how would the question look as a clause, say "Could you tell me, what is meant by a Perpetuum mobile?" or "Could you tell me, what meant is by a Perpetuum mobile?"
