Homework Help: What would a PV curve for a Quasiturbine engine look like?

  1. May 16, 2006 #1
    Im working on a report for my physics class on engines and I wanted to do a report on the quasiturbine engine but I can't figure out what a PV curve for a Quasiturbine engine would look like?

    I'm not familiar with this engine, but just a thought: sometimes it's helpful to look at the temperature/entropy diagram as well.

    disregard my last reply. I was just reading about this engine, and you probably want the P/V diagram, check out factbug.org

    It says this engine operates around an otto cycle. I'm certain you can google a graphic of an otto cycle pv diagram. Then, perhaps modify it for your purposes?
