### Irreversible and Reversible

For test 1, will we need to know both irreversible and reversible or just one?

### Re: Irreversible and Reversible

From what Lavelle has posted on his website, questions regarding the idea/concept of reversible and irreversible processes are fair game. He has explicitly said that calculations using w = - nRT ln(Vfinal/Vinitial) will not be on Test 1. However, I would highly suggest being able to explain to another person what the difference is between a reversible and irreversible process, and how they fit into the larger picture of Chapter 8. Hope this helps!

Questions about both reversible and irreversible have been on the homework, so it's safe to assume that they may be on the test.

reversible problems wont be on the test because that involves equation 4 on pg 266 and he said we dont need to worry about equation 4 for test 1

It would be a good idea to know the difference between irreversible and reversible reactions, but if it shows up on the test it will only be a conceptual question.

### Re: Irreversible and Reversible

Just for clarification, can someone explain the key differences between irreversible and reversible reactions?

On his website, he also said under announcements that there will be no questions on isothermal or reversible expansion on test 1.
