Playing with Physics: Cyclic Processes
About Playing with Physics: Cyclic Processes
“Playing with Physics” apps allow interactive simulation of select physics phenomena.
The “Cyclic Processes” app allows you to plot isothermal, isochoric, isobaric and adiabatic processes in an ideal gas. Rendering at the basic level is done with the help of animations that are displayed in sync with the rendering of the p-V diagram. Animations can be stopped, started, panned, maximized, projected using an external display device, and aspect ratio can be changed depending on the PC used. The advanced level enables the input setting of state variables and calculates the energy balance of events.
