In Boyle's law, the temperature remains constant. Hence, the Volume is inversely proportional to the Pressure and their plot is hyperbolic.

Hyperbolic Process.

A process, in which the gas is heated or expanded in such a way that the product of its pressure and volume (i.e *v ) remains constant, is called a hyperbolic process. It may be noted that the hyperbolic process is governed by Boyle,s law i.e p v = constant.

The Hyperbolic process is the process in which the gas is heated or expanded in such a way that the product its pressure and volume remains same i.e temperature is constant so it governs the Boyle's law.

So what's the answer? Explain.

Isothermal process is only applicable to gases.

But hyperbolic process is also applicable when we expand or contract wet steam. If we expand or contract wet steam via hyperbolic process i.e. pv=c then its temperature will not be same, it will be different.

When we draw the P-V diagram of an isothermal process, we get a hyperbola. That's why isothermal process also called as hyperbolic process.

The hyperbolic process happens when gas is heated or expanded while the volume and pressure remain constant.

Is there any difference between the two?

@ Ravi:

The P-V curve is a hyperbola for an isothermal process. So, an isothermal process is a hyperbolic process.

@Mr.Shailesh.

pv is also constant in isothermal process, then what is the difference between these two processes?
