### Isobaric

I understand that isobaric means that pressure is constant and ΔP=0, but what equation does it play a role in?

### Re: Isobaric

For a constant pressure system, you would be able to use the equation W=-P*deltaV, as the P would be constant and thus can be multiplied by the change in volume to get the work done.

Also in relation to the change in internal energy, heat under constant pressure is dH, which could help with the manipulation of dU=q+w.

That also means that you must use the Cv value for ideal gases

MONOATOMIC: 3/2*R
LINEAR: 5/2*R
NONLINEAR: 7/2*R

### Re: Isobaric

it means that you can use the equation w=-PdeltaV

### Re: Isobaric

isobaric means that the volume is still changing so you can still calculate work

### Re: Isobaric

for a isobaric equation to find work you will want to use W= -p delta V.

### Re: Isobaric

Isobaric basically means there is no change in pressure, which means you can have work and heat changing your internal energy.

### Re: Isobaric

Isobaric means there's no change in pressure. As pressure is constant, use the formula w=-p*deltaV to find the work. Other words include Isochoric, which means there's no change in volume (AKA no work) and isothermic, which means no change in temperature (Delta U = 0).

### Re: Isobaric

If there is no change in pressure, as stated as ΔP=0, then there is value for the pressure to be plugged in the equation of w =-PΔV. If the value of pressure or the change in volume are not given, then you can use -Δn*R*T to find work. At a constant pressure,qp equal to ΔH. You can also find q with q=nCpΔT.

### Re: Isobaric

To further complement the above responses, know that W = -PdeltaV is used to calculate work done by expansion against constant P. So since isobaric means constant pressure, this equation would be used.

### Re: Isobaric

What would work most would be w= -pdeltav
