In the pressure and volume graph, irreversible have no slope because it is isobaric, meaning there is not change in pressure. For a reversible reaction an increase in volume should decrease pressure, making the slope decreasing.
In a reversible reaction, there is a decrease in pressure, making its slope negative. Since there is constant pressure in an irreversible reaction, the slope is 0. The graphs' slopes correlate with whether or not the pressure is changing in reaction.
