Latin carnalis ‘fleshly’
an ideal cycle of reversible engine operations in which a substance at one temperature is compressed adiabatically to a second temperature, expanded isothermally at the second temperature, expanded adiabatically from the second temperature to the first temperature, and compressed isothermally at the first temperature. noun an idealized reversible heat-engine cycle giving maximum efficiency and consisting […]
an engine using a Carnot cycle of operations.
a device operating on the Carnot cycle in which the first temperature is higher than the second.
- Carnot principle
