Conceptual Problem:

  1. May 11, 2008 #1
    This sort of question might be hard since its very general, but I got it off a mutiple choice exam, and I was trying to figure what each choice belong to, I got 4 out of 5 of them, but one of them sort of stumps me, maybe you guys know what it is...

    The question ask

    ---In an isobaric process:

    Which of course, is that the pressure remains constant.

    And the other choices were

    A. The volume remains constant = Isovolumetric
    B. The temperature remains constant = Isothermal
    C. The pressure remains constant = Isobaric
    D. No heat is transferred between a system and its surroundings = Adiabatic
    E. The internal energy is constant --- (?)

    On part E, I have no idea what type of process that could be to keep internal energy constant. That is the question I'm asking, I just gave the rest of the details, because they all sort of relay to each other, and hopefully may bring some memory or thought of what it could be.

    Thanks for any help given :+)
