      @Tripolar M Disorder interesting what If instead of a normal liquid cooling system since the liquid nitrogen itself is really cold what if essentially we had a metal shot glass to just contain it as a replacement for the traditional heat sink
      and let it evaporate occasionally refilling it as it evaporates?

    • Tripolar M Disorder
      Tripolar M Disorder Year ago +2

      @sheparddog117 short answer to a little Liquid Nitrogen in a liquid cooler system, it won't work.
      Long answer: Introduce liquid nitrogen to anything with a higher freezing temperature and it will be harder than Chinese Algebra IN SECONDS. The liquid cooling system would freeze up completely and the flow within would stop, causing the CPU to overheat and burn out.
      Use ONLY liquid nitrogen and it would be different... But still bad.
      The tiny plastic pump in the liquid cooling unit would freeze over and stop working, CPU overheats and burns up again. But let's say we fix that, magically so the Liquid Nitrogen can flow around as if a pump existed.... Still bad.
      The reason the radiator on the back of the tower for the liquid CPU cooler functions is that the outside air is cooler than the liquid flowing through the radiator. Liquid Nitrogen is colder than normal room temperature, so the radiator on the back would now be taking IN heat from the outside, and taking in heat from the CPU. Nitrogen doesn't stay liquid as it warms up, but for a few seconds the CPU would indeed be running probably as if overclocked. Then the Nitrogen would achieve sufficient heat to change to gaseous phase and suddenly the pressure of the cooler unit would EXPONENTIALLY increase and since made of small rubber hoses and plastic parts that were brittle from the cold, they would likely explode.
      The CPU might not be damaged in the explosion, but it'll quickly overheat and burn out if it hadn't cracked from where its shell was also cold and brittle.
      Hope that helps.

    • simon6071

      @Jose Tjaw If the engine is expected to create a large force to power a heavy load, the steam engine has to be the piston type. The steam jet type is used more as a toy.

    • Jose Tjaw
      Jose Tjaw Month ago

      @simon6071 my bad for poor explanation. I mean most engine with no load if pushed will spin so fast one of the components will break, IMO its output is not too big as the heating temperature is still room temperature. And yes, using resin to insulate or slow the heat transfer would make nitrogen last longer, but I think would slow down the heat transfer and rate of evaporation, ultimately lower the thrust. Perhaps thin coating would do, in the end it's just choice of performance, what rpm you want and how big the load. My point is he didn't even put any load to the engine, and engine is made to be used with load xD. Ok maybe I expected this too far. Cheers.

    • simon6071
      simon6071 Month ago

      @Jose Tjaw If you connect that 'steam' engine powered by liquid nitrogen with a fan, sure the spinning would slow down. However, the nitrogen would be used up faster than when the inside of the 'steam' engine is coated with a layer of resin.

      @Levy Atã heating it up would likely make it faster since the vapor coming out and propelling it is from the nitrogen evaporating from raising in temperature. Heating it up would simply add more energy to the equation and speed up the reaction considerably.

      @Doom guy Sounds awesome! Someone should try that and minimize damage somehow.

      @Aidan Mathews probably run pretty fast for a bit, then freeze due to the coldness and explode from the pressure.

      So what if we put liquid nitrogen in those old steam tractors?

      FYI: Water to steam is accompanied by a change in volume of 1600x. For LN it's 750x. Heat of vaporization (at 1 atmosphere pressure) for water is 970 btu / lb, for LN it is 86 btu / lb. In a world cold enough for LN to exist naturally (or one much closer to LN's boiling point), your steam engine would have great energy efficiency despite nitrogen's much lower expansion ratio per lb (vs water).
