Absolute entropy is entropy calculated relative to the absolute reference point determined by the third law of thermodynamics. Absolute humidity (specific humidity or humidity ratio) is the mass of water vapor present in a unit mass of dry air that is! it is the ratio of the mass of water vapor to the mass of dry air in atmospheric air. Absolute pressure is the actual pressure at a given position and it is measured relative to absolute vacuum (i.e.! absolute "ero pressure). #hroughout this te\$t! the pressure P will denote absolute pressure unless specified otherwise. Absolute temperatures are temperatures measured on the %elvin scale or &an'ine scale! and these temperatures vary between "ero and infinity. Absorption chillers are air(conditioning systems based on absorption refrigeration! and they perform best when the heat source can supply heat at a high temperature with little temperature drop. Absorption refrigeration systems involve the absorption of a refrigerant by a transport medium. #he most widely used absorption refrigeration system is the ammonia)water system! where ammonia (*+,) serves as the refrigerant and water (+-.) as the transport medium. Absorption refrigeration systems are economically attractive when there is a source of ine\$pensive heat energy at a temperature of /00 to -001. 2ome e\$amples of ine\$pensive heat energy sources include geothermal energy! solar energy! and waste heat from cogeneration or process steam plants! and even natural gas when it is available at a relatively low price. Absorptivity is the fraction of the radiation energy incident on a surface that is absorbed by the surface. Acid rain is defined as rain or snow that washes acid(laden droplets from the air on to the soil. Adiabatic combustion temperature (see adiabatic flame temperature) Adiabatic flame temperature is the ma\$imum temperature the products of combustion will reach in the limiting case of no heat loss to the surroundings during the combustion process. #he adiabatic flame temperature attains its ma\$imum value when complete combustion occurs with the theoretical amount of air. Adiabatic process is a process during which there is no heat transfer. #he word adiabatic comes from the Gree' word adiabatos! which means not to be passed.

Adiabatic saturation process is the process in which a steady stream of unsaturated air of un'nown specific humidity is passed through a long insulated channel that contains a pool of water. As the air flows over the water! some water will evaporate and mi\$ with the airstream. #he moisture content of air will increase during this process! and its temperature will decrease! since part of the latent heat of vapori"ation of the water that evaporates will come from the air. 3f the channel is long enough! the airstream will e\$it as saturated air (/00 percent relative humidity) at the e\$it temperature. Adiabatic saturation temperature is the e\$it temperature that air attains in the adiabatic saturation process. Afterburner is a section added between the turbine and the no""le of an aircraft turbine engine where additional fuel is in4ected into the o\$ygen(rich combustion gases leaving the turbine. As a result of this added energy! the e\$haust gases leave at a higher velocity! providing e\$tra thrust for short ta'eoffs or combat conditions. Air conditioners are refrigerators whose refrigerated space is a room or a building instead of the food compartment. Airfuel ratio AF is a fre5uently used 5uantity in the analysis of combustion processes to 5uantify the amounts of fuel and air. 3t is usually e\$pressed on a mass basis and is defined as the ratio of the mass of air to the mass of fuel for a combustion process. Air-source heat pumps use the cold outside air as the heat source in winter. Air-standard assumptions reduce the analysis of gas power cycles to a manageable level by utili"ing the following appro\$imations6 1. #he wor'ing fluid is air! which continuously circulates in a closed loop and always behaves as an ideal gas. 2. All the processes that ma'e up the cycle are internally reversible. 3. #he combustion process is replaced by a heat(addition process from an e\$ternal source. 4. #he e\$haust process is replaced by a heat re4ection process that restores the wor'ing fluid to its initial state. Air-standard cycle is a cycle for which the air(standard assumptions are applicable. Amagats la of additive volumes states that the volume of a gas mi\$ture is e5ual to the sum of the volumes each gas would occupy if it e\$isted alone at the mi\$ture temperature and pressure.
