Textbook Problem

Identify the paths A, B, C, and D in Figure 12.11 as isobaric, isothermal, isovolumetric, or adiabatic. For path B, Q = 0.


Figure 12.11 (Quick Quiz 12.2) Identify the nature of paths A, B, C, and D

To determine
The thermal process for paths A, B, C and D.


The paths A, B, C and D can be found using the study of thermal process.

The path A in the figure shows an isovolumetric process because it proceeds at constant volume. Thus, it will be a vertical diagram. Hence, path A is referred as isovolumetric.

For path B, Q=0 . Therefore, it is an adiabatic process. An adiabatic process is a process in which no energy enters or leaves the system by heat. Thus, Q will be zero. Hence, path B is referred as adiabatic.

In the path C, the temperature is constant
