Clicking on the links below will bring up a new window in your browser which shows a graph of the equation concerned. Each page includes a quicktime animation showing the way in which the equation changes as its parameters are changed.
Isothermal and Adiabatic Expansions:
This page shows the difference between adiabatic and isothermal expansions . The quicktime animation shows how the difference between adiabatic and isothermal expansions changes with the value of gamma : Chapter 5 Section 5. 4
