Isothermal Reversible

Are reversible processes always isothermal?

I believe so, because all the equations we learned for reversible reactions relied on there being no change in temperature with the surroundings.

Yes, I believe so and that's why it always says isothermal reversible reaction. I don't think you will see it just say reversible without saying isothermal or constant temperature explicitly stated.

maybe there are exceptions but i think for this class and the midterms isothermal is always reversible

I remember a UA mentioned that isothermal is always reversible but reversible does not always mean isothermal; I think that is what he said.

i think isothermal always means reversible but not necessarily the other way around

There might be some times in which a reversible reaction is not isothermal but I'm pretty sure we'll only be asked about isothermal reversible.
