Umbrage is the refuge of scoundrels;
If you care to read the closing line/s of my post - the other choice is the author is an idiot.
We have covered this bit of rampant stupidity previously;
"Referring to the diagram in Fig. 17, it will be noted that part of the total work of compression represented by the area MABR is performed by the atmospheric air rushing into the cylinder behind the piston during the compression stroke and not by energy furnished by the compressor. This work is represented by the area MAFR."
If comments like 'not unless the crankcase is evacuated' mean nothing to you - then ask yourself why a vacuum pump needs to be powered?
Why isn't every pneumatic cylinder in the World permanently extended?
What sort of a total tosser do you have to be to swallow such an obviously flawed "pet theory patch"?
If that isn't enough, then if ALL the energy is converted to heat, where does the 'pressure' come from?
You are holding as 'authoritive' the attempts to explain by those who were never taught Charley Boyle.
But the upside is you have responded to a post of mine. Now all you need to do is furnish the data the ones you were studiously ignoring, called for.
