Definition of the noun adiabatic process
What does adiabatic process mean as a name of something?
- (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.
- also known as 绝热过程

Adiabatic Process. A thermodynamic change of state of a system such that no heat or mass is transferred across the boundaries of the system. In an adiabatic process, expansion always results in cooling, and compression in warming.
