reversible and isothermal

Postby Lauryn Jordan 1F » Tue Feb 13, 2018 6:39 pm

if something is reversible and isothermal, i know the total internal energy equals 0, therefore q = -w, but what else should i know about this?

Reversible reactions take more work than irreversible reactions (remember the graphs in Lavelle's lecture).
Isothermal means temperature is constant.
Isothermal reversible reactions happen very slowly.
