Isothermal Objects

Postby Sylvester_Foley_3G » Wed Jan 25, 2017 11:47 am

Hello,

I was looking over my notes, and when I got to the definitions of what an open, closed, and isolated system are, I began to wonder. What would something that is Isothermal (Constant Temperature) be considered? Is it an open, closed, or isolated system?

Thank you in advance,

Sylvester :)

It can be any as long as the temperature is remained constant

Any system, whether it be a open, closed or isolated system can be isothermal. Isothermal simply means constant temperature, and that can take place anywhere. Also, remember that under isothermal conditions, the delta(U) of a system is zero, and as a result q=-w.
