  • en.wiki's w:Isochoric and this page's isochore. A contour line that corresponds to values measured at identical volumes. For example, a curve on a plot of gas pressure measured at different temperatures in a rigid container is an isochore. Seem to concur. It gets 2150 books.google hits, and I looked through a few which didn't make much sense to me as a non-chem type, but seemed to fit relatively well the definition given.

  • OK - I was a bit hasty. It also seems to have different meanings in geology and genetics. I shall try to improve it. SemperBlotto 21:14, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
