The answer sheets must be placed in the 317K boxlocated outside PAI 2.48. Late homework will not be graded. Answer the following 58 questions. 1. If two objects are in thermal equilibrium with each other A) they cannot be moving B) they cannot be undergoing an elastic collision C) they cannot have different pressures D) they cannot be at different temperatures E) they cannot be falling in the Earth's gravitational field 2. In constructing a thermometer it is NECESSARY to use a substance that: 3. When a particular constant volume gas thermometer is in thermal contact with water at its triple point (273.16 K), the pressure is 5.55 × 104Pa. For this thermometer 1 K corresponds to a change in pressure of about: 4. When the temperature of a copper penny is increased by 100 C°, its diameter increases by 0.17%.
