1. ### Dynamics (Help me understand)

i can appreciate you comment. But this is what i mean. This isnt sinking in. My lectures speak to me like this. Could you work through it with me. Cheers
2. ### Dynamics (Help me understand)

hey guys, i'm in the middle for revising for a dynamics paper in January. I'm in the middle of a 1st year BSc Physics degree. Looking through some past papers, there are questions that i can do, and there are questions that i am unable to do. These are usually question where you have to derive...
3. ### Adiabatics with OTTO CYCLE

hey guys, just wanted to know, in the graph of the OTTO cycle in the link http://www.qrg.northwestern.edu/ther...Pv-diagram.gif [Broken] are stage (2-3) and (1-4) adiabatic or not, if so why are they the reason i ask is that i have a graph showing that these stages are adiabatic...
