Reversible but not-isothermal expansion?

Postby sofiakavanaugh » Sun Feb 11, 2018 9:13 pm

Will there ever be a case where a reversible process is not isothermal? And how would calculating entropy for that be different?

I too would like to know if this is possible.

Same. It seems like every problem referring to a reversible system also mentions that the system is isothermal. I was wondering if the fact that the system is isothermal makes it reversible, but that correlation doesn't seem to conceptually or mathematically add up for me.

That could work. However, delta U would have to be given. But we do have an equation for a reversible reaction that is not isothermal for work.
