The Physics Source website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
This web page is an interactive physics simulation on cyclic processes. The user can put an engine through four steps, returning it to its original conditions. The work done by the engine is graphed after each step, showing the net work done.
This is part of a collection of similar simulation-based student activities.
