If latent heat is released by condensation of cloud liquid water in an adiabatically rising parcel, [[theta].
Any condensation evaporates back into the air, and the air is clear and warms adiabatically as it sinks.
Then combustion products are cooled adiabatically in the adiabatic part to thermal and moisture balance at the temperature of wet-bulb thermometer, and then they are cooled to the temperature of [t.
The first interpretation [46] to IB's was done within the framework of the strong coupling limit of the particle-rotor model, in which one or more particles are coupled to a rotating deformed core and follow the rotation adiabatically.
proposed computation of propagation in adiabatically tapered dielectric structures based on eigenfunction expansions in [1].
For instance, adiabatically compressing 70 [degrees]F air with an 80 percent efficient compressor from 1 atm to 15 atm increases its temperature to 823 [degrees]F.
All the walls were treated adiabatically and, hence, the normal gradients of temperature were set equal to zero at all fluid-wall interfaces.
From Point B, the airstream enters the DEC and is adiabatically cooled along the constant wet-bulb line to Point C, where it reaches 55[degrees]F (12.
The fact that work can be done adiabatically on a system, with no change in the energy stored within its boundaries (Zimmels, 1995, 1996a,b;1997;1999; 2002), and energy of a system can be changed with no work or heat delivered in its own frame of reference, calls for reformulation of the first law in the presence of fields.
The second hypothesis is that the walls of the combustion chamber adiabatically isolate the internal flow, meaning that are no loses of heat produced during the combustion.
For [delta][omega] [much less than] 0 the atoms follow the driving field adiabatically and thus the radio frequency and the light modulation oscillate in phase.
