Unformatted text preview: Heat Engine with ideal gas Operation of a Heat Engine Slide 1126 Can we convert all E th to W ? Slide 1126 N NO! Q C can never be 0 Slide 1126 Q C = 0 Recall: PV graphs IdealGas Processes We can represent the state of a gas by a point on a pV diagram. A process can be represented by a path on this diagram. ConstantVolume Process P f V f T f = Slide 1229 ConstantPressure Process Isobaric P f V f T f = ConstantTemperature Process Isothermal Slide 1230 P f V f T f = Checking Understanding: GasLaw Processes A sample of gas is in a cylinder with a moveable piston. The force on the piston can be varied, altering the pressure and volume. A sample of gas is taken from an initial state to a final state following a curve on a pV diagram at right. The final temperature is A. higher than the initial temperature. B. the same as the initial temperature. C. lower than the initial temperature.
