Lecture no. 19 from the course: Thermodynamics: Four Laws That Move the Universe
Taught by Professor Jeffrey C. Grossman | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Study heat engines and their design limits for converting heat into work. The maximum possible efficiency in a heat engine is defined by the Carnot engine, an unattainable ideal whose properties illustrate the second law of thermodynamics.
