Adiabatic Processes

Postby Dustin Shin 2I » Sun Feb 10, 2019 11:23 pm

The textbook briefly mentioned adiabatic walls and diathermic walls. Is this important information at all for the upcoming midterm or is this relevant at all? Also is this related to adiabatic processes at all or is that something completely different?

It might be useful to keep in mind that an adiabatic system will have a constant heat. As such, temperature will also be unchanging due to the insulation provided. I did not see any problems relating to this concept, but it might be useful to know what the term means, especially since both the book and Lavelle explained it.
