Isobaric process


“What is a thermodynamic process in which pressure remains constant?”


One of the defining features of a thermodynamic process is that the state of the system will change with time. However, in some of these processes, not all of the properties of a state will change. An example is Isobaric Processes, in which the pressure of a system will stay constant throughout the process. The work done under an isobaric process can be very simple to compute, being proportional to the change of volume W = P(v2-v1).
