Chapter 11, Energy in Thermal Processes C HAPTER 11 1. A 10-kg piece of aluminum (which has a specific heat of 900 J/kg ⋅° C) is warmed so that its temperature increases by 5.0 C ° . How much heat was transferred into it? a. 4.5 × 10 4 J b. 9.0 × 10 4 J c. 1.4 × 10 5 J d. 2.0 × 10 5 J 2. In a greenhouse, electromagnetic energy in the form of visible light enters the glass panes and is absorbed and then reradiated. What happens to this reradiated electromagnetic radiation from within the greenhouse? a. 100% returns to the atmosphere. b. It’s blocked by glass. c. It’s transformed into ultraviolet upon striking the glass. d. It’s reflected as visible light upon striking the glass. 3. Which of the following best describes a substance in which the temperature remains constant while at the same time it is experiencing an inward heat flow? a. gas b. liquid c. solid d. substance undergoing a change of state 4.

A hot (70 ° C) lump of metal has a mass of 250 g and a specific heat of 0.25 cal/g ⋅° C. John drops the metal into a 500-g calorimeter containing 75 g of water at 20 ° C. The calorimeter is constructed of a material that has a specific heat of 0.10 cal/ g ⋅° C. When equilibrium is reached, what will be the final temperature? c water = 1.00 cal/g ⋅° C. a. 114 ° C b. 72 ° C c. 64 ° C d. 37 ° C 10. Heat flow occurs between two bodies in thermal contact when they differ in what property? a. mass b. specific heat c. density d. temperature 11. Who demonstrated that when heat is gained or lost by a system during some process, the gain or loss can be accounted for by an equivalent quantity of mechanical work done on the system?
