The Physics of Cooling Techniques - There are many reasons for wanting to cool things, but whatever the reason, the Second Law of Thermodynamics dictates that cooling something will take effort (sorry, no spontaneously cool sodas). Different techniques have been developed to address this issue, each having its own limitations and ideal uses. The most commonly used method of cooling is with vapor-compression cycles, because it is fairly easy to construct a cooling device employing this method and the cost is low. In fact, conventional refrigerators use this method of cooling to keep your leftovers and drinks chilled....   [tags: thermodynamics physics refrigerator] 2370 words

Development of Refrigeration and its Affect on Society - ... He invented a cooling machine based off a vapor compression cycle: the first refrigerator. The machine he created worked in a four step process using a refrigerant gas that started in a compressor controlled by electricity. It then traveled to condenser as a high temperature vapor. From there the coils of the condenser cooled down the vapor at a high pressure, turning it into a liquid. It then flowed through the expansion valve into the low-pressure evaporator. The change in pressure caused the liquid to promptly boil and evaporate, drawing heat from outside of the evaporator coil and thus caused the temperature to drop in the surroundings of the coil (the refrigerator)....   [tags: refrigeration, advances, technology]
