Carnot Cycle (Heat Engine)
See Instructions and Explanation Below



This java applet show you the physics processes of a Carnot heat engine.

Carnot cycle is a four stage reversible sequence consisting of

1. Set the starting point (Press, Volume) of the adiabatic compression process:

2. Set the starting point for the isothermal compression process:

3. Press Start button to start the animation, Press Reset to reset the conditions.

4. Cp/Cv is the ratio of the specific heat of the gas at constant pressure to that at constant volume.

5. While the animation is suspended, move your mouse within the PV-diagram
     to view the (P, V) values.
