It is well established that the adiabatic and reversible volume change of an ideal gas {R,c )

in a cylinder and piston apparatus follows the path PVr = constant, where y = ~. Real


processes, however, depart from this path; the actual path is named polytropic and is

represented by the function PV" = constant, where n is a constant (n * y). The mass ofthe

ideal gas is m, the mass of the cylinder wall is M, and the specific heat of the wall material is c. At any instant during the expansion or compression process, the ideal gas and the wall material are in mutual thermal equilibrium. Furthermore, the combined system (ideal gfcs and the wall material) does not exchange heat with its surroundings. The

expansion or compression process is sufficiently slow so that jSW| = \PdV\ is practically valid.
