Isothermal process occurs at constant temperature involving an ideal gas. Pressure can be expressed as:
P = nRT/V
For an isothermal process leading to an expansion from an initial volume, V0 to the final volume, Vf, the work is expressed as:
E. During an isothermal process, the internal energy of the system changes.
