# Adiabatic Sentence Examples

If the substance in any state such as B were allowed to expand adiabatically (dH = o) down to the absolute zero, at which point it contains no heat and exerts no pressure, the whole of its available heat energy might theoretically be recovered in the form of external work, represented on the diagram by the whole area BAZcb under the

**adiabatic**through the state-point B, bounded by the isometric Bb and the zero isopiestic bV.Even if the expansion is

**adiabatic**, in the sense that it takes place inside a non-conducting enclosure and no heat is supplied from external sources, it will not be isentropic, since the heat supplied by internal friction must be included in reckoning the change of entropy.The increment of this area (or the decrement of the negative area E--04) at constant temperature represents the external work obtainable from the substance in isothermal expansion, in the same way that the decrement of the intrinsic energy represents the work done in

**adiabatic**expansion.For a gas, the

**adiabatic**bulk modulus B = P, where P is the ambient pressure.That is to say, expansion is

**adiabatic**and is continued down to the back pressure which in a non-condensing engine is 14.7 lb per square inch, since any back pressure above this amount is an imperfection which belongs to the actual engine.AdvertisementIf we write K for the

**adiabatic**elasticity, and k for the isothermal elasticity, we obtain S/s = ECÃƒâ€ F = K/k.Stirling substituted for the two stages of

**adiabatic**expansion and compression the passage of the air to and fro through a "regenerator," in which the air was alternately cooled by storing its heat in the material of the regenerator and reheated by picking the stored heat up again on the return journey.If, starting from E, the same amount of heat h is restored at constant pressure, we should arrive at the point F on the

**adiabatic**through B, since the substance has been transformed from B to F by a reversible path without loss or gain of heat on the whole.The isothermal elasticity - v(dp/dv) is equal to the pressure p. The

**adiabatic**elasticity is equal to y p, where -y is the ratio S/s of the specific heats.In thiscase the ratio of the specific heats is constant as well as the difference, and the

**adiabatic**equation takes the simple form, pv v = constant, which is at once obtained by integrating the equation for the**adiabatic**elasticity, - v(dp/dv) =yp.AdvertisementIf we assume that s is a linear function of 0, s= so(I +aO), the

**adiabatic**equation takes the form, s 0 log e OW +aso(0 - Oo) +R loge(v/vo) =oIn passing along an

**adiabatic**there is no change of entropy, since no heat is absorbed.If the tube is a perfect non-conductor, and if there are no eddies or frictional dissipation, the state of the substance at any point of the tube as to E, p, and v, is represented by the

**adiabatic**or isentropic path, dE= -pdv.I by the whole area B"DZ'VO under the isothermal 9"D and the

**adiabatic**DZ', bounded by the axes of pressure and volume.The intrinsic energy, E, is similarly represented by the area DZ'Vd under the

**adiabatic**to the right of the isometric Dd.AdvertisementThat is to say, instead of using Boyle's law, which supposes that the pressure changes so exceedingly slowly that conduction keeps the temperature constant, we must use the

**adiabatic**relation p = kpy, whence d p /d p = y k p Y 1= yp/p, and U = (yp/p) [Laplace's formula].Assuming, however, that the agreement is close enough for practical requirement, the conbustion of the cordite may be considered complete at this stage P, and in the subsequent expansion it is assumed that the gas obeys an

**adiabatic**law in which the pressure varies inversely as some mtn power of the volume.The Direct Methods Of Measuring The Ratio S/S, By The Velocity Of Sound And By

**Adiabatic**Expansion, Are Sufficiently Described In Many Text Books.A vapour compression machine does not, however, work precisely in the reversed Carnot cycle, inasmuch as the fall in temperature between the condenser and the refrigerator is not produced, nor is it attempted to be produced, by the

**adiabatic**expansion of the agent, but results from the evaporation of a portion of the liquid itself.If we write K for the

**adiabatic**elasticity, and k for the isothermal elasticity, we obtain S/s = ECÃ†F = K/k.Advertisement
