An example of an adiabatic process is a piston working in a cylinder that is completely insulated. The cylinder does not lose any heat while the piston works because of the...
An adiabatic process is one that occurs without transfer of heat or matter between
a system and its surroundings; energy is transferred only as work.
An adiabatic process is one in which no heat is gained or lost by the system. The
first law of thermodynamics with Q=0 shows that all the change in internal ...
In other words Q = 0.
An adiabatic process
is generally obtained by surrounding the entire system with a strongly insulating material or by carrying out the process
so quickly that there is no time for a significant heat transfer to take place.
Applying the first law o... More »
