    Project Details


    Analitical study of the phase space of an isolated system composed by a single párticle and a piston, which undergoes an expansion followed by a compression process

    Layman's description

    We investigate the possibility of extracting work from an adiabatic compression/expansion cycle performed on a single particle gas confined within a container with a piston.
