Worked problems (optional)

The video below gives an example of a worked problem on the triad-NO-NO2-O3. It combines aspects from this unit, last unit and thermodynamics.

The video below shows a worked problem example related to the Chapman cycle.

Class work

In class, we will discuss the problems in this work sheet, among other things.
