We may conclude that when adding a particle in an adiabatically way, the probability of occupying an energy state below [E.sub.F] is very small and therefore, it will occupy an energy state above [E.sub.F].
Since these reactions are "not adiabatically dumped into the heat bath of the surrounding medium" [40], condensation processes could result in the emission of Balmer [30] and Paschen lines [43].
In the argument, Einstein employed a Carnot engine with two heat reservoirs, denoted by Uo and U and originally 'at rest' with the same (rest) temperature To, to illustrate how heat is transferred between them, if U is accelerated to a velocity adiabatically along with an auxiliary machine.
The moisture-laden air is forced to rise over the Rocky Mountains, often loses much of its water vapor to condensation, and subsequently warms dry adiabatically (through compressional warming of unsaturated air) on its lee-side descent.
On their journey towards the equator, the Jet obtain their cool and adiabatically drying climatological conditions as they traverse over the cold upwelling Somali waters (Fig.7) [1].
Technically, X is taken to be an adiabatically, piecewise stationary, ergodic (APSE) information source (see e.g.
As a result of the cavity bubble destruction, the gas or the existing vapors inside it are adiabatically compressed, the temperature can reach 1000[degrees]C and a shock wave is generated of which intensity increases with the increase of acoustic pressure.
For naphtha steam reforming, the desulfurized hydrocarbon is fed to a pre-reformer, which is operated adiabatically, where the higher hydrocarbons are directly converted to methane, giving a methane-rich gas feed for the reformer (Christensen, 1996).
It is assumed that pressure equalization occurs adiabatically. The following equation is obtained by equating total internal energy before and after equalization process and by rearranging the terms,
Ambient air is drawn into the cooler and adiabatically cooled.
