Course Summary:

An air compressor operates by converting mechanical energy into pneumatic energy via compression. The input energy could come from a drive motor, gasoline engine, or power takeoff.

The pressure exerted by a confined gas results from rapid and repeated bombardment of the container walls by the enormous number of gas molecules present. The pressure can be increased by increasing the number or force of the collisions. Increasing the temperature does this by speeding up the molecules (Charles’ Law). Another way is to increase the average number of molecules in a given volume. This is compression. It can be done by either decreasing the volume (Boyle’s Law) or increasing the amount of gas.

Learning Objective:

The student will learn the basics and fundamentals of air compressors.
