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


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.
