What is Polytropic Work?
Polytropic work is the energy transferred to or from an object via the application of force along with a displacement for a system whose pressure and volume obey a certain thermodynamic relation. For a polytropic process path, one in which pV^{n}=constant along the path, n is the polytropic index. Such a process path is typically regarded as reversible, and the temperature, volume, and pressure can be varying along the path. Positive work adds energy to a system. Negative work removes or dissipates energy from the system.
How to Calculate Polytropic Work?
Polytropic Work calculator uses Polytropic Work = (Final Pressure of System*Final Volume of Gas-Initial Pressure of System*Initial Volume of Gas)/(1-Polytropic Index) to calculate the Polytropic Work, Polytropic Work is the energy transferred to or from an object via the application of force along with a displacement for a system whose pressure and volume obey a certain thermodynamic relation. Polytropic Work is denoted by W_{polytropic} symbol.
How to calculate Polytropic Work using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Polytropic Work, enter Final Pressure of System (P_{f}), Final Volume of Gas (V_{2}), Initial Pressure of System (P_{i}), Initial Volume of Gas (V_{1}) & Polytropic Index (n) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Polytropic Work calculation can be explained with given input values -> 4751.433 = (18.43*99-65*50)/(1-1.3).
