Adiabatic Wall

Does an adiabatic affect how much energy a reaction gives off?

Adiabatic mean that , so a reaction can still absorb or release energy if work is done on the system or the system does work.

Adiabatic means that energy cannot be absorbed or ejected as heat so the system must do work or work must be done on a system in order to absorb or release energy.

Since no heat is exchanged with the surroundings in the presence of an adiabatic wall, q=0.

If we apply this fact to the equation, we find that when adiabatic
