what is an adiabatic process?

an adiabatic process is one in which there is no change in q during the reaction, so no heat is exchanged.

I think thats no transfer of heat or mass of substances between a thermodynamic system and surroundings.

Yes, in an adiabatic process q equals to zero because there is no transfer or heat between a system and its surroundings.

adiabatic means where there is no transfer of heat, so q is zero.

^^ this correct and then would imply that deltaU (change in internal energy is = w (work)) since q=0

An adiabatic process has no heat transfer (q=0)

An adiabatic process transfers no heat, and a diabatic process transfers heat

An adiabatic process is one in which no heat is transferred between the reaction and the surroundings (i.e. q=0). This is not the same as an isothermal process, in which the change in temperature is 0. Simply because there is no change in temperature, this does not indicate that there was no heat transfer between the reaction and the surroundings.

Would this mean that the change in enthalpy for an adiabtic process is also zero?

Adiabatic means that there was no heat transfer so q=0

I think that the change in enthalpy would also be zero for cases in which the pressure is constant since only at constant pressure is heat equal to the enthalpy.

An adiabatic process occurs without transfer of heat or mass of substances between a thermodynamic system and its surroundings.

An adiabatic process is when no heat is transferred.

What is meant by an adiabatic process is that there is no change in heat, q.
This is not to be confused with isothermal where the change in temperature is 0.

An adiabatic reaction is when theres no heat being released or transferred into or from the system. Usually in these cases, q=0 and delta U = w

There is no heat exchange

Can any real process ever be completely adiabatic? Heat exchange seems like it would be inevitable, in the real world.
