Thermodynamic Processes • States of a thermodynamic system can be changed by interacting with its surrounding through work and heat. When this change occurs in a system, it is said that the system is undergoing a process . • A thermodynamic cycle is a sequence of different processes that begins and ends at the same thermodynamic state. • Some sample processes: ! Isothermal process: temperature is constant T=C ! Isobaric process: pressure is constant, P=C ! Isentropic process: entropy is constant, s=C ! Constant-volume process, v=C ! Adiabatic process: no heat transfer, Q=0
