The textbook mentions that reversible processes are those that can be reversed by an infinitely small change in a variable. How does this directly translate into how reversible processes tend to do more work than irreversible processes?
If you graph a reversible process and the irreversible process changing the same amount of volume, you will clearly be able to see that the reversible process does more work based on the area under the curve.
