Meaning of ADIABATIC (ADIABATIC PROCESS) in English
- ADIABATIC (ADIABATIC PROCESS)
A process that neither absorbs nor releases energy into the surroundings. For example, a chemical reaction taking place in a closed thermos bottle can be considered adiabatic. Very fast processes can often be considered adiabatic with respect to heat exchange with the surroundings, because heat exchange is not instantaneous.
