Constant Pressure Isobaric Process Review and Equation
An isobaric process is a thermodynamic process in which the pressure stays constant: Δ P = 0. The term derives from the Greek iso- (equal) and baros (weight). The heat transferred to the system does work, but also changes the internal energy of the system.
To determine the work done in a constant pressure process, the following equation is used:
