Write the conditions for maximum work done by the system.
Conditions for maximum work:
Maximum work is obtainable from a system when
1) any change taking place in it is thermodynamically reversible.
2) the change in the system takes place in an infinite number of steps.
3) the driving force of the change is infinitesimally greater than the opposing force.
4) the system is in mechanical equilibrium with its surroundings.
