Science / Chemistry / Isothermal: Having constant temperature.


Science / Chemistry / Isotherm: A contour line that corresponds to values measured at identical temperatures. For example, curves on a plot of gas pressure measured at different volumes in a constant temperature bath are isotherms. MORE

Boyles Law

Science / Chemistry / Boyles Law: The pressure of a ideal gas is inversely proportional to its volume, if the temperature and amount of gas is held constant. Doubling gas pressure halves gas volume, if temperature and amount of gas do MORE

Thermosteric Anomaly

Science / Tides and Currents / Thermosteric Anomaly: The specific volume anomaly (steric anomaly) that would be attained if the water were changed isothermally to a standard pressure of one atmosphere. The specific volume anomaly with pressure terms omi MORE

Second Law

Science / Chemistry / Second Law: The second law states that every spontaneous process causes a net increase in the entropy of the universe. Many alternative statements are possible, including: Heat cannot be converted to work via an MORE
