1st Law for isochoric, isothermal and adiabatic process. • Temperature Three special ideal gas processes: one of, W or Q is 0. • fix volume by 0 for isobaric. Explain the differences among the simple thermodynamic processes—isobaric, isochoric, isothermal, and adiabatic. Calculate total work done in a cyclical. If I remember my thermodynamics correctly, all reversible processes must be quasistatic but the opposite is not the case. For a process to be.

Now, the P stands for Pressure and the V stands for Volume. Are isobaric, isochoric, isothermal, adiabatic processes reversible if they all take place quasi-statically?

Are all quasi-static processes reversible? Bob D 2, 2 Well, we know a formula for the work done by the gas. So it would be height times the area of the piston. But with the Thermal dynamic processes.

If a system has an entropy which has not yet reached its maximum equilibrium value, the entropy will increase even though the system is thermally insulated. To log in and use all the features of Khan Academy, please enable JavaScript in your browser.

And if I go to the left it would be an isobaric compression because volume would be decreasing. That would tend to increase the pressure. So this formula won’t work for the whole process. Isobaric means constant pressure. If there’s any gas inside, it can’t be zero. This heat will try to make the pressure increase, but if you just allow this system to come into equilibrium with the outside pressure, the inside pressure is always gonna equal the outside pressure because if it’s not equal, this piston will move up or down accordingly.

So that movable piston can change that amount of volume. September 30, As Samalama pointed out, all reversible isochotic are quasi-static but not all quasi-static process are reversible.

That means on this graph, I’m going that way. Email Required, but never shown.

The pressure-volume conjugate pair is concerned with the transfer of mechanical or dynamic energy as the result of work. So this would be in iso, procfsses, sometimes they’re called isobars, and isobar for short. October 15, File will be replaced when the same filename was attached. The temperature-entropy conjugate pair is concerned with the transfer of thermal energy as the result of heating.

Maybe I’m going down and right.

PV diagrams – part 2: Isobaroc forgot to re-calculate pressure P. This is not increasing volume, so I know if my piston goes up, my volume increases, I gotta be going to the rightward in some way on this graph.


If I’m going to the left, I know my work is positive. Implications issothermal the first law. But just knowing the direction of the piston, that lets you know which way you go on this graph.

First law of thermodynamics. These equations are used a lot in Carnot cycles and Otto cycles. Email required Address never made public.

Registed user can get files related to this applet for offline access. So how do you represent this on a PV DIagram? January 01, Well, if you wanna maintain constant pressure, you can’t go up or down, because if I were to go up, my pressure would be increasing. Whatever follows next, and this one’s isobaric. So there’s infinitely many possibilities on this diagram.
