n The cooling which occurs when a highly compressed gas is allowed to expand in such a way that no external work is done is known as the Joule-Thomson effect. This cooling is inversely proportional to the square of the absolute temperature. (Serway RA, Faugh JS, Bennett CV (2005) College physics. Thomas, New York).
