Polytropic Process is kind of a thermodynamic process which follows this relation:

PV^{n}= constant

where n i s known as the index of the process.

It is actually a way to define the compression and expansion process taking place in thermodynamic system.

Like n=1 is isothermal, n=0 is isobaric & n=infinity is isochoric
