Thermodynamic Process

Thermodynamic Process
A thermodynamic process is said to take place when some changes occur in the state of a thermodynamic system in the thermodynamic parameters (i.e. temperature, pressure and volume) with time.

2. Adiabatic Process: Click here for details on this topic

3. Isochoric process: The thermodynamic process in which volume remains constant is called Isochoric process.
    dQ = dU + dW
    dQ = dU + 0
    dQ = dU
    dQ = nCv dT

4. Isobaric process:The thermodynamic process in which pressure remains constant is called Isobaric process.

5. Reversible process: A thermodynamic process that can be retraced in the reverse order is called reversible process.

Condition of Reversible Process

  1. All the process taking place in the cycle of operation must be infinitely slow
  2. There should not be any loss of energy due to conduction or radiation during the cycle of operation

6. Irreversible process: A thermodynamic process that cannot be retraced in the reverse order is called reversible process.
