This fully functional Stirling motor demonstrates the direct conversion of heat into kinetic energy. It is powered by external conduction of the heat produced by an ordinary tea light. The kit comes in a box which is used to create the motor housing. All the parts required to build the Stirling motor kit are included. The motor can be fitted using simple tools such as screwdrivers and pliers with no need for gluing. The construction time required is ~ 2 - 3 hours. Functions: The displacer plate introduces air into the interior of the motor, alternating between contact with the warm bottom plate of the box and the colder upper lid. The resultant heating and cooling raises and lowers the air pressure in the motor housing, pushing the working pistons up and down, thereby driving the connected propeller.
Advantages: Great lecturers. Easy to switch between courses. Teaches in a relaxed way. Learn so much! Disadvantages: None!
...I have just finished my 3rd year at Brighton university studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), in a few months time I will be completing my Masters there in Digital Electronics, Computing and Communication (DECC).
The university if fantastic! But to stop me spiralling out of control I will try and focus on the course only.
Right from first year I felt that I have fitted in...
Advantages: Good numerate degree from excellent establishment Disadvantages: Hard work, poorly organised department at times.
...I have been at Imperial studying Aeronautical Engineering for over 2 years now, and though I have the odd complaint, I certainly don't have any regrets so far.
Firstly, I would not recommend the course to someone who is simply looking for a degree about aeroplanes - I can assure you it isn't, and I can count the number of instances that aeroplanes have been mentioned so far on one hand. Sure...
Advantages: well made, durable, less expensive than some Disadvantages: boring colours, grumpy face!
...My son has a Thomas the Tank Engine Take & Play set that we are gradually building up over time. We buy him parts of the track for Christmas and for birthdays and we collect the trains here and there for small treats or with pocket money. One of the trains that we picked up as it was in Asda quite cheap (at around £4) was this Diesel engine. The Take & Play set is recommended for children aged...
