Ex 1 Two bodies of the same substance, both of mass m , having temperature T 1 and T 2 , are placed in thermal contact. In the temperature interval (T 1 ,T 2 ), the specific heat of the bodies varies according to the law c(T) = a +bT . Determine the equilibrium temperature of the bodies, assuming that no heat is exchanged with the outside. a = 0.5 kcal/(kg º C); b = 10 -3 kcal/(kg º C 2 ); T 1 = 0 º C; T 2 = 100 º C;
Ex 1 ..assuming that no heat is exchanged with the outside. This means that energy of the combined system is conserved. We know that the temperatures of the two object change as these exchange heat. If Q 1 and Q 2 are the heat flowing into object 1 and 2, respectively, the conservation of energy tells us Q 1 = -Q 2 . The specific heat is defined as Accordingly, we have and c = 1 m dQ dT dQ = m dT Q 1 = m T 1 T eq c ( T ) dT Q 2 = m T 2 T eq c ( T ) dT

Ex 1 We find Q 1 = T 1 T eq c ( T ) dT = T 1 T eq a + bT dT = aT + 1 2 bT 2 | T 1 T eq = a ( T eq T 1 )+ 1 2 b ( T eq 2 T 1 2 ) Q 2 = T 2 T

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
