Isochoric vs isometric

What is an isochoric/isometric system and is there a difference between the two?

Isochoric is constant volume, Isobaric is constant pressure, Isothermal is constant temperature. I don't think we have done any work with Isometric.

An isochoric process, also called a constant-volume process, or an isometric process, is a thermodynamic process during which the volume of the closed system undergoing such a process remains constant.

They're just different names for the same process, i.e. a constant volume process. Like the user above mentioned, just make sure to understand the differences between isochoric, isothermal, and isobaric processes.

What is the significance of knowing that it is isometric/isochoric? Is it just to know that there is no change for when you're doing calculations?
