Isothermal processes

$w=-P\Delta V$
and
$w=-\int_{V_{1}}^{V_{2}}PdV=-nRTln\frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}}$

Isothermal processes

What does isothermal expansion exactly mean? And just wanting to make sure I'm correct but for isothermal expansion the equation S=nRln(v1/v2) is used, right?

Re: Isothermal processes

isothermal means that the temperature stays the same and I believe that is the right equation to use when solving those types of problems
