A Note on Irreversible Adiabatic Cyclic Process and Role of Time in Thermodynamics

Authors: Radhakrishnamurty Padyala

Irreversible adiabatic cyclic process of an ideal gas is an important thermodynamic process. It offers a method of analysis of second law without involving any heat interactions. We show in this note that the impossibility of an irreversible adiabatic cyclic process is equivalent to the assertion that time plays no role in thermodynamic predictions.
