Definitions

  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • a Isobaric (Phys. Geog) Denoting equal pressure; as, an isobaric line; specifically, of or pertaining to isobars.
    • ***
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • isobaric Indicating equal weight or pressure, especially the pressure of the atmosphere: in the latter use equivalent to isobarometric.
    • isobaric In mathematics, having all terms of equal weight.
    • n isobaric In thermodynamics, a line or surface of equal pressures; an isobar.
