This resource is a simulation of an ideal Otto engine. The page explains the cycles of the engine, and the applet shows its cycles alongside a pressure vs. volume or temperature vs. volume diagram. The graph shows that net work is done by the piston.
This page is part of a collection of Java applets with tutorial questions developed for undergraduate physics students.
