Isobaric Reversible Expansion

Postby KDang_1D » Mon Feb 03, 2020 1:06 pm

Today (Monday Week 5), Dr. Lavelle talked about isothermic reversible reactions. The external pressure decreases gradually, allowing heat to instantaneously enter the system as it does work. What would this process look like for reversible expansions for which we use the formula

Are you asking for this equation : -nRTlog (V2/V1) or how he derived this?

In the case of isothermic reversible reactions, the pressure decreases thus is not constant. That is why you have to use this equation: -nRTlog (V2/V1)

I guess I'm asking, how would this piston function in practice/how could you model this experimentally?

Where exactly in the textbook does it talk about isobaric reversible reactions?
