Thermodynamic Processes

Thermodynamic Processes

Adiabatic Process ($dQ = 0$)

Combining

$$ \large PV^\gamma = \text{constant} $$

and

$$ \large PV = nRT $$

then

$$ \large TV^{\gamma-1} = \text{constant} $$

Isobaric Process ($dP = 0$)

Isothermal Process ($dT = 0$)

$$ \large P_1V_1 = P_2V_2 \quad (\because PV = nRT)$$$$ \large W = \int d(PV) = P \int dV = nRT \int \frac{dV}{V} = nRT \ln V $$
