The principal constituents of a fuel are
In an extensive property of a thermodynamic system
When a gas is heated at constant pressure
By decreasing the highest temperature in the Carnot cycle, its efficiency is increased.
Workdone during adiabatic expansion is given by (where p1 v1, T1 = Pressure, volume and temperature for the initial condition of gas, p2, v2, T2 = Corresponding values for the final condition of gas, R = Gas constant, and γ = Ratio of specific heats)
