8. how does a refrigerator works?

       You may be wondering how the vegetable fruits and foods inside the fridge get cooled below the room temperature right?

       It is a well-known fact that when a hot object is kept inside the room, it will start to cool because ‘heat’ from the hot body is transferred to a low temperature room environment.

        When the ‘hot object temperature’ becomes equal to a ‘room temperature’,  heat transfer from that hot body, ends. It means, further cooling of that object i.e below the room temperature is not possible

      Because there is no temperature difference and also heat cannot move from a cold body to a hot body in order to further cool the cold body.

       If so, then how does the stuff inside the fridge get cooled below room temperature?

       This is possible according to the second law of thermodynamics! It states that heat can move from a cold body to a hot body by a ‘System’ if a ‘work’ is added to that ‘system’.

       In the case of a refrigerator, ‘system’ is refrigerator and ‘work’ is added to this system through a compressor.

       Hence, it is possible to transfer the heat from the stuff inside the refrigerator, to a high temperature room environment in order to cool the stuff inside the fridge to below the room temperature

9. main parts of a refrigerator

       Main parts of a refrigerator are 1. compressor 2. condenser 3. evaporator and 4. expansion valve

       Refrigerant is a fluid through which the heat is transferred from the stuff inside the fridge to an environment using compressor, condenser, evaporator and expansion valve

10. Refrigerator Door Configuration

        You have seen the single door configuration of the refrigerator but, do you know in addition to the single door configuration, there exist other 4 different door configurations of the refrigerator viz. Top Mount, Bottom mount, Side by Side and French door bottom Mount refrigerator door configuration?

Refrigerator door configuration

10.1 Top or Bottom mount

       Normally double-door Refrigerator configured as either Top mount or Bottom mount depending on the position where the freezer is mounted i.e. top or bottom

10.2 Side by side

       In this configuration, fridge and freezer sit side by side. Works best when you use frozen and fresh food equally. interior space is narrow, larger items will not fit.

10.3 French Door Bottom Mount/Freezer

      In this configuration, two side by side doors for the refrigerator plus a bottom freezer drawer. This style works best in tight spaces and allows for larger items in the fridge

11. Direct cool and frost free refrigerator

11.1 Direct cool refrigerator

       In this refrigerator circulation of air inside the refrigerator is due to the Buoyancy effect, i.e. heavy cold air from the topside freezer moves down whereas lighter hot air from the refrigerator goes up to the freezer. 

       Here no fan is used to circulate the air. This type of air circulation is called natural convection.

11.2 frost free refrigerator

       In this refrigerator circulation of air inside the refrigerator is done forcibly by  using a fan. This type of air circulation is called forced convection.

       Also, the refrigerator is called frost free because, in the case of forced convection, frosting of the condensate in the freezer will not form.

12. What is Defrosting?

       In the case of a direct cool refrigerator, ice will form on the freezer surface because of freezing of the condensate in it.

Frost

Formation of ice on the surface of the freezer

       Clearly, this ice formation (frost) will not help you in saving money on your electricity bill, because it reduces the heat transfer rate and thereby increases the time taken and energy consumed by the refrigerator to freeze or cool the stuff

       The process of removing the frost from the freezer surface is called defrosting.

       Defrosting can be done manually either by stitching off the power supply to the refrigerator and then turning on the supply after the Frost is completely melted out from the freezer surface or by pressing the defrost button provided in the refrigerator (Only few direct cool refrigerators have that button).

       To increase the speed of the defrosting process, keep the bowl of hot water inside the freezer.
