# How would you explain an isothermal process?

Jul 27, 2016

Isothermal processes are those processes which cause change in the system in such a way that the temperature of the system remain constant.

#### Explanation:

All around us there are millions of processes which cause some kind of change in the system. But the processes which cause some change in the system specifically at a constant temperature are termed as isothermal process. Which specifically means that there will be no change in temperature and $\Delta T = 0$

For Example,all the reactions going on in the refrigerator are isothermal as a constant temperature is maintained in it. The melting of ice at zero degree is an example of isothermal process. The reaction in a heat pump is an example of isothermal process.

Note: Here, $\Delta$ ( called delta) is a symbol which is used to represent change.
