In a Polytropic process, the polytropic index(n) can take the value from -∞ to +∞. Now place the values of n and get Isobaric, isothermal, adiabatic and Isochoric processes which were explained below.

Put n=0;

{\displaystyle pV^{\,n}=C} =>p=c Isobaric process

Put n=1;=>PV = C => Isothermal Process

Put n=1.4=> Adiabatic Process

Isochoric process is difficult to calculate by writing in this region, so you can check in the link mentioned Polytropic Process
