Pressure-Temperature Relationships


The key terms—saturation, superheat, and subcooling, and how they relate to the functioning of an air conditioning system, the various temperature and pressure scales used in the HVAC industry and the concept of a pressure-temperature chart.

Upon completion of this module you will understand how to:

1. Define "temperature."
2. Discuss the various temperature scales used in the HVAC industry.
3. Define "pressure."
4. Discuss the various pressure scales used in the HVAC industry.
5. Describe the basic relationship between temperature and pressure, and how it affects the operation of an air conditioning system.
6. Explain saturation.
7. Define superheat, and demonstrate how to calculate it with the aid of a pressure-temperature chart.
8. Define subcooling, and demonstrate how to calculate it with the aid of a pressure-temperature chart.
