Input interpretation:

Stirling cycle


Equation:

eta_th = 1 - T_c\/T_h |  \neta_th | thermal efficiency\nT_h | hot reservoir temperature\nT_c | cold reservoir temperature\n(assuming an ideal gas and an ideal regenerator)


Input values:

hot reservoir temperature | 1500 K  (kelvins)\ncold reservoir temperature | 300 K  (kelvins)


Result:

thermal efficiency | 0.8\n= 80%


Pressure vs. volume:



Temperature vs. entropy:
