Isothermal, Isobaric, Adiabatic

Postby Dustin Shin 2I » Sun Mar 17, 2019 4:06 am

I have encountered these terms for processes when studying for thermodynamics but have not seen these specifically outline for the Thermodynamics Outline. Should I know all of these? Only a few? Or none at all for the upcoming final?

I am not sure, but I think it's better to know just in case. Isothermal is where the temperature stays constant in a system. Isobaric is where the pressure is constant, and adiabatic is where transfers of matter and energy as heat are prohibited.

I would know them just in case. Adiabatic means q=0, isothermal means constant temperature and isobaric means constant pressure. It’s also helpful to know that isochoric means constant volume.
