    I Energy Conversion With Supercritical Fluids

    Technically, this isn't a question concerning supercritical fluids. It's more about converting thermal energy into velocity by playing "keep-away" with molecules that want to go supercritical. The idea is simple. In an fully contained system, we can more or less say volume is static...
