# reversed carnot cycle

## Is Carnot cycle a better one?

What is meant by the Carnot cycle? According to Carnot theorem, which is a corollary of the second law of thermodynamics, no cycle can be more efficient than a reversible cycle operating between the same temperature limits and the Carnot cycle is one such reversible cycle with two reversible isothermal and two reversible adiabatic processes. …

## Carnot Theorem-Why Does No One Oppose It?

What is the Carnot theorem?  Sadi Carnot, a French engineer, was the first to use cyclic process in thermodynamic reasoning. According to Carnot theorem, no cycle can be more efficient than a reversible cycle operating between the same temperature limits;  Also, any two reversible cycles will have the same thermal efficiency when they operate between …

## How Carnot Cycle Limitations Impact its practicability to use

Although according to the Carnot theorem, the reversible Carnot cycle boasts a high level of efficiency, its practicability is not possible due to Carnot cycle limitations. One of its limitations is its low net work output for a given stroke volume. This means that to generate more work, the Carnot engine’s size would need to be …

## pv diagram for carnot cycle to know various process in the carnot better

What is PV diagram? The diagram which shows variation in the pressure and volume of a working substance during any process is known as the Pressure Volume or PV diagram. Let us discuss the PV diagram for Carnot cycle. PV diagram for Carnot cycle Figure shows variation in pressure and volume of the working substance …

## Possibilities Of Carnot Cycle For Refrigeration And Its Performance

Application of the Carnot cycle for refrigeration In 1824, Sadi Carnot proposed a cycle that could convert heat into work in the most efficient way possible. This cycle is called the reversible Carnot cycle and it has the highest possible efficiency. Since it is reversible, the Carnot cycle for refrigeration is possible. By reversing the operation …

## efficiency Carnot engine can be improved

Picture a world in which different engine cycles compete to be the most efficient at converting heat into work. In this world, a powerful theorem known as the Carnot theorem exists postulated by Sadi Carnot, a French engineer, which states that no cycle can surpass the efficiency of the reversible cycle(e.g. Carnot cycle, Stirling cycle …
