Adiabatic and isothermal

What is the difference between an adiabatic system and an isothermal system?

Adiabatic means there is no heat transfer (q=0) and isothermal means that there is no change in temperature (delta T=0).

Adiabatic: relating to or denoting a process or condition in which heat does not enter or leave the system concerned.

Isothermal: No change in temp, so delta T = 0.

Adiabatic= no heat transfer (q=0)
Isothermal= no change in temperature (deltaT=0)

Adiabatic: q=0
Isothermal: T=0

An adiabatic process occurs without transfer of heat or mass of substances between a thermodynamic system and its surroundings. In an adiabatic process, energy is transferred to the surroundings only as work.

An isothermal process is a change of a system, in which the temperature remains constant: ΔT = 0.

Adiabatic is an isolated system where transfers of matter and energy as heat are prohibited. Isothermal is a process where it is the temperature that stays constant.
