Which process produces more work out adiabatic and isothermal?
I've looked around the internet but different sites say which one is better and doesn't explain why.
Does it make a difference if the pressure is released into the atmosphere?
This is mainly related to a question I have in a paper that asks whether or not a rocket would reach a higher height if had undergone an adiabatic process rather than isothermal.
Is the line steeper for adiabatic? How can you show this mathematically?
