Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics

The work done in isothermal compression compared to that in adiabatic compression will be_____.

  • A. Less
  • B. More
  • C. Same
  • D. More or less depending upon the extent of work done
Answer: Option B.
Explanation: 

Since, the area under P − V
plot for isothermal is less than the area under p − v
plot for adiabatic process during compression. We can say adiabatic work done is more than isothermal work done.
