Hi there! I am working on a project that requires some idea of adiabatic processes. I know the basics of the said topic and I'm currently stuck with the reversible adiabatic equation PV^(gamma)=constant.. and want to know what is the constant term i.e. on what parameters it depends and what is its mathematical equation? Kindly help me if you can...

It is a constant,right.Then why should it depend on anything.

[tex]PV^{\gamma}=P_1V_1^{\gamma}[/tex]
where P_{1} and V_{1} are the initial pressure and volume.

Constant term in the adiabatic equation

well,for adiabatic process it means that if system is going under adiabatic change then that Pv^gamma would not change.
