Examples of isothermal processes in everyday life

Hi,

Adiabatic, iosbaric and isochoric processes are good approximations for a lot of thermodynamic phenomena in every day life.

But the conditions for a process to be isothermal are so artificial that i have grave difficulties to fudge a story.

Are there any examples of thermal processes in everyday life that can be approximated as isothermal (maybe there are isothermal changes of state in the atmosphere, universe etc?).

i'm looking forward to your answers...

with best regards

Phase changes, such as boiling or freezing of water, are isothermal.

Yes phase change is an isothermal and isobaric process
