Definition of the noun adiabatic process

What does adiabatic process mean as a name of something?


  1. (thermodynamics) any process that occurs without gain or loss of heat


Adiabatic process: An adiabatic process is one that occurs without transfer of heat or matter between a system and its surroundings. A key concept in thermodynamics, the adiabatic process provides a rigorous conceptual basis for the theory used to expound the first law of thermodynamics.
