ME 125NT Intro to Nanotechnology Due: 5/15/2008 1 Problem Set 6 Problem 7.4 in book A free electron in a block of gold has an energy of 3.8×10 -21 J. What is the approximate temperature (°C) of the block? Problem 7.10 in book A copper wire 3 μ m in diameter and 300 μ m long has a temperature at one end of 35°C and 32°C at the other. Calculate the rate of heat flow though the wire, in watts. (For copper k c =400 W·m -1 ·K -1 .) Problem 7.11 in book The thermal conductivity of air at room temperature is 0.028 W·m -1 ·K -1 and its density is 1.16 kg/m 3 . The average “air” molecule travels at 524 m/s and collides about every 267 picoseconds with another air molecule. How much heat (in joules) is needed to raise the temperature of a cubic meter of air by 10°C? Problem 7.12 in book Very thin films are usually deposited under vacuum conditions to prevent contamination and ensure that atoms can fly directly from the source to the depositing surface without being scattered along the way.

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.
