Stirling Engine

The engine runs fast
on a glass of hot water -

 - it slows down later as
the top plate warms up

- and is revived by ice
on the top plate.

The engine also runs in the
opposite direction on a
glass of ice water.

This economical Stirling Engine runs by exploiting the heat flow generated by the small temperature difference between room temperature and a cup of hot water or ice. It is a classic illustration of converting heat energy into mechanical work using a thermodynamic cycle. The engine runs at about 150rpm when used with a cup of hot water.

Includes an activity guide. Dimensions:  7" x 5" x 5".
