Upon completion of this module you will understand how to:

1. Define volumetric efficiency.
2. Name the factors affecting volumetric efficiency.
3. Explain the term compression ratio, and calculate the compression ratio of a compressor.
4. Explain the term "adiabatic compression."
5. Explain transformation of energy and give an example.
6. Define mechanical efficiency.
