If T is constant, p is a unique function of V, namely p=nRT/V.
Hi, thanks for the response

So for different polytropic processes to be possible, then the temperature at the end states must not be the same and if it the temperature throughout the process is the same, then the pdv process must satisfy the ideal gas law (assuming an ideal gas is compressed)?

So this would mean that for different reversible processes with the same end states, the sum of the integral of de/T and p/Tdv will always end up working out to be the same value?

I'm also wondering if you can take a look at my first question in the OP.

Thanks very much for your help
