Reversible Systems

isochoric/isometric: $\Delta V = 0$
isothermal: $\Delta T = 0$
isobaric: $\Delta P = 0$

Reversible Systems

In the textbook, it discusses how reversible processes:if the external and internal pressure were to be the same (while temperature is being held constant) is there still work to be calculated?

Re: Reversible Systems

Yes, there is. In fact, the work done by the system on the surroundings is maximized in a reversible system.
