reversible process

(Science: chemistry) A cyclic process carried out by a hypothetical pathway, which leaves the universe exactly the same as it was before the process, no real process is reversible. For chemical systems we consider a process at equilibrium to be reversible. Examples are phase transitions that occur at the melting point or boiling point temperatures at 1 atm pressure.
