Definition of Adiabatic process

Adiabatic process Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
A thermodynamic change of state in a system in which there is no transfer of heat or mass across the boundaries of the system. In this process, compression will result in warming and expansion will result in cooling.
Technical English by wpv
A thermo-dynamic process in which no heat is extracted from or added to the system of the process.
Adiabatic process Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
An adiabatic process is one that occurs without transfer of heat or matter between a thermodynamic system and its surroundings. In an adiabatic process, energy is transferred only as work. The adiabatic process provides a rigorous conceptual basis for the theory used to expound the first law of thermodynamics, and as such it is a key concept in thermodynamics.
