## Reversible and Irreversible processes

## Reversible process |
## Irreversible process |

The process goes through infinite change so, it takes infinite time to complete. |
The process goes through finite change so, it takes finite time to complete. |

The process proceeds infinitesimally slowly maintaining the equation state. |
This process is faster; the equilibrium state is maintained only at initial& final position of system. |

During the state change it is in equilibrium state at all stages |
It is not in equilibrium state during the state change, driving force is always greater than opposing force. |

This process in only an assumption and impracticable. |
This process is real and practicable. |

Work done by this process is more if the process is possible to carry out |
Work done is always less than reversible process |
