reversible or irreversible process

An ideal gas expands isothermally from state A to state B at 300K with an entropy change (deltaSsys) of 50 J/K. When the expansion was performed, the work done by the system was - 6 kJ/K. Was this process reversible or irreversible? Explain.


Solution Summary

It explains whether the process is reversible or irreversible or not when an ideal gas expands isothermally. The solution is detailed and well presented.
