Isothermal systems are reversible systems. They have a constant temperature and are less efficient with work. Irreversible reactions do not have a constant temperature (it decreases then increases in expansion) and use the W = -PV equation. Just remember that reversible and isothermal are basically synonyms here, and they both use the nRT ln (v1/v2) equation.
