Formula: Adiabatic Process

Pressure before

Unit
Pressure of the ideal gas BEFORE the adiabatic process.

Volume before

Unit
Volume of the ideal gas BEFORE the adiabatic process.

Adiabatic index

Unit
Adiabatic index is the quotient of heat capacities at constant pressure \( c_{\small{\Pi}} \) and volume \( c_{\small{\text V}} \).

For example, for monatomic gas: \( \gamma ~=~ \frac{5}{3} \).

Pressure after

Unit
Pressure of the ideal gas AFTER the adiabatic process.

Volume after

Unit
Volume of the ideal gas AFTER the adiabatic process.
