Carnot Cycle (Heat Engine)

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.
