I have in front of me an equation for energy in a system [ U=U(P,V) ]. I'm being asked to find "the equation of the adiabats in the P-V plane". What are they looking for? I know an adiabat is a system with no heat transfer, meaning that the energy of the system would equal the work done on the system. But what is this equation that they are looking for?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
