Hello,
I am having difficulties in my study of thermodynamics to keep all of these Iso's in order. What I mean is, how the PV diagram should look for isothermal, isobaric, isochoric, and adiabatic processes, as well as expressions for Q and W for all of these processes, and in general the conceptual effects of changing T and P for all of these processes. It's a bit overwhelming right now to think of how all these things interact when something is held constant in a box full of ideal gas and one other factor is changed, to determine other changes. Any tips for those who have the material mastered? Thank you

I so think that you should derive the equations from first principles and graph them out.
