    As per first law of thermodynamics: Q = U + W where Q = Quantity of heat flowing into the system, U = Change in the internal energy of the system and W = Work done by the system.

    In case of an infinitesimal process (i.e. a process in which the thermodynamic coordinates undergo infinitesimally ...
