(Thermo) Show that in a Reversible Adiabatic process

  1. Sep 24, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Show that in a reversible adiabatic process, for 1 mole of ideal gas

    P1V1γ=P2V2γ

    Where,

    γ=CP/CV


    2. Relevant equations
    Listed above.


    3. The attempt at a solution
    Frankly, I don't really understand what I'm being asked to do.

    It simply meant to ask that PVγ is constant for a reversible adiabatic process. Actually, the question is asking to prove that the adiabatic processes follows this trend, just like PV=constant for isothermal processes.

    Try the question. A good one indeed.
