Web Project for Physics 212x, Spring 2003 (04/16/03)
site contains useful information concerning the physics of refrigerators
as well as how refrigeration works.
topics to be covered will be:
a cold engine works
basic principles of thermal conduction.
electric aspect of the refrigerators will mostly be excluded.
reading through this site, one should walk away with a good, general
understanding of the physics of refrigerators. It is best to begin
in the cold engine section -- simply hit next to be taken there.
