Adiabatic Expansion of an Ideal Gas in Variable Acceleration Fields
We consider first irreversible adiabatic expansion and then the reversible counterpart.
Although the gas preheating temperature could have been calculated from the equation for gas adiabatic expansion, trial and error is generally required to find out the best preheating temperature to reduce the time for reaching initial thermal equilibrium to an acceptable degree.
