Adiabatic (from Gr.negative + διάβασις passage; transference) refers to any process that occurs without heat transfer. This concept is used in many areas of physics and engineering. Notable examples are listed below.


  • Automobiles 1
  • Meteorology 2
  • Quantum chemistry 3
  • Thermodynamics 4
  • Quantum mechanics 5
  • Electronics 6
  • Carbohydrate chemistry 7
  • Extraction 8
  • References 9


  • Engine braking, a feature of some diesel engines, uses adiabatic expansion to diminish the vehicle's forward momentum.


  • Adiabatic lapse rate, the change in air temperature with changing height, resulting from pressure change.
