## Isometric/Isochoric

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

### Isometric/Isochoric

Is a bomb calorimeter an example of isometric/osochoric?

Yes. Bomb calorimeters are used as closed systems for constant-volume experiments.

Yes, a bomb calorimeter maintains a constant volume (isochoric) for reactions.

In the book, it says that bomb calorimeters are usually metals, so they maintain the volume although pressure may increase. To make the bomb calorimeter an isolated system, it can also be submerged in water to make it isothermal.

Yes, a bomb calorimeter is a type of constant-volume calorimeter so it can be considered isometric.

What is the difference between isochoric, isobaric, and adiabatic?

### Re: Isometric/Isochoric

Isochoric is where the volume stays constant, isobaric is where the pressure stays constant, and adiabatic is where transfers of matter and of energy as heat are prohibited (therefore q=0)

What does isometric mean? The same as isochoric?

Is isochoic another way to say a closed system? Are they interchangeable?

Please, someone, correct me if I am wrong, but I think that isochoric is the same thing as Isometric. As in a closed system.
