### Isobaric systems

Which equations do you tend to use when solving for an isobaric system?
Also which values are equal to zero in an isobaric system?

### Re: Isobaric systems

When a system is isobaric that means that the pressure is constant, which implies that . I think this is all you can assume from this statement. Dr. Lavelle didn't really talk specifically about the terms isobaric and isochoric, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

### Re: Isobaric systems

Isobaric is constant pressure, isochoric is constant volume, and isothermal is constant temperature.

### Re: Isobaric systems

Isobaric means constant pressure and when you have a system at constant pressure you can say that delta h=q.

### Re: Isobaric systems

In an isobaric system, pressure is constant, so delta P would equal zero. In this case, work can be calculated using the formula w=-PdeltaV and heat can be calculated using q=deltaH.

### Re: Isobaric systems

Isobaric is constant pressure, isochoric is constant volume, and isothermal is constant temperature. With these conditions, you'll need to match up the right equations with each one. There are reversible and irreversible equations.

### Re: Isobaric systems

What about an adiabatic system? is there a different equation for that?

### Re: Isobaric systems

For an adiabatic system there is no heat transfer so q=0 and ΔU=w.

Isobaric is constant temperature!

### Re: Isobaric systems

Isobaric means constant pressure. Under these conditions, h = deltaH, since deltaH is defined at constant pressure. Also, w = -(Pext)(deltaV) since pressure is fixed.

### Re: Isobaric systems

Isobaric means constant pressure, so at constant pressure q=deltaH, w= -PV.

### Re: Isobaric systems

During Lyndon and Matt's Pizza Rolls review session, Matt made a comment that might help with remembering the meaning of isobaric. He emphasized the BAR in isoBARic and compared it to BARometer, which is an instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure. Hope this helps!

In an adiabatic system, there is no heat transfer (q=0).

Isobaric means constant pressure. Isochoric means constant volume. Isothermal means constant temperature.

### Re: Isobaric systems

When pressure is constant, ΔH=q. This is because ΔH=ΔU+PΔV. Since ΔU=q+w, the equation can be rewritten as, ΔH=q+w+PΔV. Since w=-PexΔV, that equation can be rewritten as ΔH=q-PexΔV+PΔV. P=Pex in isobaric conditions so ΔH=q. Therefore, Cp=ΔH/ΔT under these conditions.

### Re: Isobaric systems

For isobaric reactions, pressure is constant. This means that both equations for w can be used, as well as the relationship where delta H = q

### Re: Isobaric systems

Isobaric systems are systems with constant pressure so you would use an equation that works with the variables you are given as long as pressure is constant. A common equation is deltaH = q
