isothermal reversible expansion describes gas expansion whose direction can be reversed by inducing infinitesimal changes in the internal or external pressure. the pressure on the inside has to be a LITTLE bit more than the pressure on the outside, because the gas would not expand if the pressures were the same. if you were to make the external pressure a LITTLE but more than the internal pressure, then the gas would compress.
