Question

Isothermal and irreversible reactions, what is the difference
between 1-step and 2-step process? How are they calculated
differently?

Answer #1

Isothermal process are those in which the temperature of the system remains constant throughout the process.

Irreversible process are those in which the cannot be brought back to the initial stage at which it was started by any means. These are those which are not reversible in nature.

Process involving isothermal change have change in internal energy zero. So from the 1st law of thermodynamics , work done will be equal heat exchange .

I.e ∆Q= ∆U + ∆W , here ∆U= 0 so ∆Q= ∆W.

Now the process can be either reversible or irreversible. Work done can be calculated differently for both of these

For reversible process, work done is- W = -n*R*T ln V2/V1 where V2 is the final volume and V1 is the initial volume, R is universal gas constant, T is temperature and n is the number of moles.

For irreversible isothermal process ,

Work done= P* ∆V, where ∆V = V2-V1,

V2= final volume

V1= initial volume

To get a speed of
propagation, Newton assumed that the process is ( A ). While he
assumed the process is ( A ), which means the temperature is
conserved during the process, the speed of propagation is quite
different with the real one. Laplace's modified equation considered
the process as ( B ), which means the process occurs without the
transfer of heat or matter between a system and its surroundings.

An engine based on 50 moles of diatomic gas tries to split the
difference between the Carnot and Otto cycles and invokes a
three-step design: 1) an adiabatic expansion from 70 K to 350K, 2)
an isothermal compression to the original volume, 3) an
isovolumetric increase of temperature back to the original
state.
