Can someone define what net heat absorbed is. I'm taking physics 1 right now, and am not sure exactly what it is. We just learned the first law of thermodynamics, and one of the questions on the homework is asking us to find the net heat absorbed in an isometric process. I just have no idea what that means...is it just like what Q is, since W=0? I just used the equations for Q, being nCvdeltaT, but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated.
