This item is an annotated homework problem involving an ideal gas contained in a cylinder with a movable piston. The author provides explicit explanations of isothermal, adiabatic, isobaric, and isochoric processes to guide users in solving for a number of unknowns. This item is part of a larger collection of introductory physics homework examples. (less)

The Ejs Adiabatically Changing Harmonic Oscillator model displays the frictionless dynamics of a mass on a spring where the angular frequency of the oscillator adiabatically changes with time according to: ω = ω₀ + α tβ. The simulation displays the cumulative and current phase space motion as well as the area in phase space. All parameters can be changed via textboxes. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting “Open Ejs Model” from the pop-up menu item. Ejs Adiabatically Changing Harmonic Oscillator model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_ehu_analytical_mechanics_adiabatic.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models. Additional Ejs models for Newtonian mechanics are available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs. (less)

Four simulations were created at Iowa State University to support learning in a large-lecture introductory meteorology class. AdvectionSim simulates warm and cold air advection in the United States. It allows users to vary wind speed and direction in Ames, Iowa. The results show how the temperature gradient would change over a matter of time given the wind speed and direction. BudgetSim simulates the energy intake of our atmosphere during the day and the loss of energy at night. Users can vary the intensity of the sun during the day. A tub of water fills up, symbolically showing the energy intake of our atmosphere. MountainSim simulates the difficult concepts of adiabatic processes. A leaf symbolizes a parcel of air rising over the Mountain. Graphs then display the information as the leaf rises and falls. Users are allowed to vary the beginning temperature and vapor-pressure of the air parcel. RadiationSim simulates the differences of thermal exchange among four types of ground surfaces. Users can choose which land type they want to experiment with and then compare the results side-by-side in a graph. This page provides instructions for using these applets as well as access to them.

Student teams design and build solar water heating devices that mimic those used in residences to capture energy in the form of solar radiation and convert it to thermal energy. This thermal energy is next transferred to water (to be used as domestic hot water) in the form of heat. In doing this, students gain a better understanding of the three different types of heat transfer, each of which plays a role in the solar water heater design. Once the model devices are constructed, students perform efficiency calculations and compare designs. (less)
