Identify the following gas compression descriptions as adiabatic, isothermal or isobaric.
a. As the gas compresses, the internal energy ÄU, decreases when the temperature decreases; the work done on the gas is greater than the heat removed from the gas: ___________________

b. As the gas compresses, both ÄU and temperature of the gas increase as work is done on the gas; no heat is lost or gained by the gas during the process: _______________________

c. As the gas compresses, the heat removed from the gas is equal to the work done on the gas; ÄU is equal to zero and the temperature of the gas remains constant throughout the process: ________________________________
