We are being asked to determine if the detonation of TNT under atmospheric pressure is a reversible process.
Recall: A reversible process is a process in which the system and environment can be restored to the same initial states that they were in before the process occurred if we go back along the path of the process.
Consider what happens when a sample of the explosive TNT is detonated under atmospheric pressure.
Is the detonation a reversible process?
