How a Refrigerator Works

Refrigerator Diagram

This is a diagram of how a refrigerator works.  This could be on the scale of the refrigerator in your house or controlling the whole climate of a building.  The compressor changes the pressure of the system and causes the refrigerant to change phases and release energy.  Then cool air and hot air is released and whichever is being directed into the room changes the room temperature.  It was cool to see this on a huge scale in the depths of Campbell hall and understand how the building was regulated.
