adiabatic systems

Postby Emily Tam 1k » Sat Mar 16, 2019 10:35 pm

when a system is adiabatic, does that mean no heat is being introduced into the system or does it mean that there is no existing heat at all inside the system?

It just means that the heat is constant, there will always be some level of heat within a system. Here it just doesnt change.

No heat is gained or lost by the system, so q=o and delta U = w.

Adiabatic means there is no heat flow, no heat is being transferred between the system and the surroundings

It means that there it no additional heat being transferred between or within the system. There could already be heat in there to begin with but it will not change.

adiabatic means no heat exchange (but there can he heat already stored in the system, there is just no heat loss or gain). in an adiabatic system, q=0

it means that q=0, so delta=w. it will usually be specified in the problem.

Adiabatic is when q=0, so that would mean that there is no transfer of heat.

Adiabatic means there is no heat exchange, however there can already be heat within the system.

Adiabatic means that there is no heat transfer

According to the textbook, it just means that there's o heat transfer between the system and its surroundings even if there's a temperature difference.
