The work done in isothermal compression compared to that in adiabatic compression will be

A. Less

B. More

C. Same

D. More or less depending upon the extent of work done

Answer: Option B

Solution(By Examveda Team)

Since, the area under $$P-V$$   plot for isothermal is less than the area under $$p-v$$   plot for adiabatic process during compression. We can say adiabatic work done is more than isothermal work done.

    The answer should be (A) Less.

    The answer will be absolutely A
    Because when we see the graph of P-V
    The area of isothermal compression is less than that the area of adiabatic compression.
    That means the work done on P-V graph is equal with The area made by the P-V.
