Gas Expansion Example

Postby Mackenzie Sober 2E » Sat Jan 21, 2017 7:48 pm

For the gas expansion example on page 30 of the course reader, in class Dr. Lavelle said the expansion has to happen slowly, why is this? What happens if the expansion happens quickly?

I think he was mentioning that it is more efficient for gas expansion to happen in many small increments, than less larger ones
