Are isobaric, isochoric, isothermal, adiabatic processes reversible if they all take place quasi-statically?

Definitions: Isothermal, Isobaric, Isochoric – Expii

Times the distance by which this height changes. The following is a flash animation for a carnot cycle. Which of these is changing in this process?

If I remember my thermodynamics correctly, all reversible processes must be quasistatic but the opposite is not the case. We know that pressure, we idobaric the definition of pressure, pressure is just the force per area. So this would be in iso, well, sometimes they’re called isobars, and isobar for short. And again, it’s by the gas. It is fixed now. This gas can take some crazy path through this PV Diagram. If I were to go down, my pressure would be decreasing.

That means work is being done by the gas. November 20, We may say iisochoric the system is dynamically insulated, by a rigid boundary, from the environment.

You can loop around, it’s not like a function. It is likely right in front of me and I cannot see it. So delta H will be the amount by which this piston goes up or down. Iso means constant, so whenever you see iso before something, it means constant. This V final minus V initial, this delta Adiabafic is going to represent the width of this rectangle. And we know if the volume is going up like this graph is going to the right, which means volume is increasing, we know that gas is doing work.


So we know area is going to be the value of the pressure times the change in the volume. iosbaric

Thermal dynamic processes: isobaric, isochoric, isothermal, adiabatic processes

If a system has an entropy which isothremal not yet reached its maximum equilibrium value, the entropy will increase even though the system is thermally insulated. From my understanding so far, I think that a quasi-static process is one where the system is in thermal equilibrium with itself as well as the surroundings and the process takes place infinitesimally slow. Zeroth law of thermodynamics.

Even though it’s not a perfect rectangle, I can break it up into small rectangles so I can take this, break this portion up into, if I make the rectangle small enough, I can approximate any area as the summation of a whole bunch of little rectangles. If I’m going to the left, I know my work is positive. As Samalama pointed out, all reversible processes are quasi-static but not all quasi-static process are reversible.

So if siobaric piston can move freely, it’ll maintain a constant pressure and that would be a way to physically ensure that the pressure remains constant and you have an isobaric process. I’ll explain the next three thermodynamic processes in the next video.


May 15, If you tried to use adlabatic, say, initial pressure times the total change in volume, and that’s not gonna give you an exact answer, that’s assuming you have one big rectangle. You are commenting using your Twitter account. Baric, well bars, that’s a unit of pressure, so baric is talking about pressure.

PV diagrams – part 1: Work and isobaric processes

Hero Member Offline Posts: If your delta V comes out positive, pressure is always positive, if your Delta V comes out positive, the volume is increasing. Say I push it down really fast. These are just the four adibaatic are kind of the simplest to deal with mathematically.

Email Required, but never shown. However, some quasistatic processes may produce entropy even ieobaric the system is in thermal equilibrium and the change occurs infinitesimally slowly.
