Formula: Adiabatic Process
Adiabatic Process in a Temperature-Pressure Graph

Temperature before

Unit
Absolute temperature of the ideal gas before the adiabatic process.

Pressure before

Unit
Pressure 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: \( \gamma ~=~ \frac{5}{3} \).

Temperature after

Unit
Absolute temperature of the ideal gas after the adiabatic process.

Pressure after

Unit
Pressure of the ideal gas AFTER the adiabatic process.
