Polytropic process


“What process in Thermodynamics holds the pressure and volume to a constant?”


Thermodynamics is known for its intense reliance on processes. Some of the most important types are classified as Polytropic processes. In polytropic processes, the pressure and volume are held to the constant given by the relation pv^n=c, where p is pressure, v is volume, n is the polytropic index, and c is a constant. A process is polytropic if it obeys the ideal gas law and if the heat to energy transfer as work at each infinitesimal step of the process is kept constant
