When mechanical work is done on a system, there can be an increase in
- temperature only.
- internal energy only.
- both internal energy and temperature.
When a gas undergoes an adiabatic compression
- it gains internal energy and its temperature increases.
- it is compressed into a liquid by adiabatic liquefaction.
- its volume decreases but its temperature remains constant.
