Quasi-Static or Quasi-equilibrium Process

When the process is carried out in such a way that at every instant, the system deviation from the thermodynamic equilibrium is infinitesimal, then the process is known as quasi-static or quasi-equilibrium process and each state in the process may be considered as an equilibrium state.

The quasi-static or quasi-equilibrium process is also known as reversible process. A process which can be reversed in direction and the system retraces the same equilibrium states is known as reversible process.
