Mechanical Vaccum Pump Model

  1. Jan 17, 2012 #1
    Hi all,

    I was recently given a project at my college intership where I am supposed to model a mechanical singe vane rotary vaccum pump mathematically. The objective of the analysis is to find the work required to run the pump and the resulting net loss of energy from the system. I was told this was a fairly simple problem, but I don't know where to star, so any help or direction would be appreciated.

    Code (Text):

    cout<<"work done: "<<work<<" joules\n";
    cout<<"net energy loss: "<<netLoss<<" joules\n";
    now you just need to add a few more lines at the beginning, and you're all done!
