Adiabatic isobaric free expansion
« on: February 18, 2021, 08:37:41 PM »
I just have a question to pounder
Why cant we have an "adiabatic isobaric free expansion". I mean what are the factors and points that we have to exaplain.
adiabatic = q=0   and isobaric means constant pressure while free expansion means work done is 0. How do i link them?

They are incompatible.
At constant pressure, work = PΔV, so it's not free expansion.
At constant T, PV = constant, so to keep the pressure constant during expansion, T has to increase. Where does the heat and the work come from if it's adiabatic?
