Isolated Systems

Postby Helen_Lee_1L » Thu Jan 19, 2017 12:52 am

Are there other examples of isolated systems other than bomb calorimeters?

Another example of an isolated system could be an very well insulated container, such as a thermos. An isolated system is anything that cannot exchange heat or mass with its surroundings.

soup that is poured into a completely insulated container with a lid so no heat or material can be exchanged (thermoflask if it worked perfectly; realistically thermoflasks are not completely insulated so not completely isolated), insulated gas tank, the universe(?)
