Question: 20 points do some research on how a stirling engine...

Question details

(20 points) Do some research on how a Stirling Engine works (Wikipedia is a good start). For the Stirling engine, identify the following:

a. Sketch the device

b. Name a few potential working fluids

c. Dawn a proper system/control volume for calculating the work output of the engine

d. Heat and mass flows (if there are any) in and out of this system/control volume

e. Four important thermodynamic properties of the working fluid we might want to know to calculate how much work this engine can produce

f. Describe the processes the working fluid goes through as the engine runs.
