Reversible Reactions

isochoric/isometric: $\Delta V = 0$
isothermal: $\Delta T = 0$
isobaric: $\Delta P = 0$

Reversible Reactions

Are reversible reactions always isothermal? Can we assume that delta U = 0 for any reversible or isothermal reaction?

Re: Reversible Reactions

I believe all reversible reactions are isothermal but all isothermal reactions may not be reversible

Re: Reversible Reactions

I think you can make the assumption that isothermal reactions have deltaU = 0. That also means that q = -w

Re: Reversible Reactions

All isothermal reactions have delta U=0 and all constant pressure w=0.

Are reversible reactions are isothermal!

Re: Reversible Reactions

Lyndon in his review session said that in this class, we can pretty much assume that isothermal means reversible.

Re: Reversible Reactions

Will reversible reactions be on the next test?

Re: Reversible Reactions

Not all isothermal reactions are reversible but if a reaction is said to be reversible it is usually isothermal. because there is no temperature change delta U is equal to zero according to the equation U= 3/2nRdeltaT.

Re: Reversible Reactions

Any reversible reaction is isothermal, but never assume that any isothermal reaction is reversible.
