Homework 6. Solutions Problem 1. d) If two objects are in thermal equilibrium they have the same temperature. Problem 2. e) In constructing a thermometer it is necessary to use a substance that undergoes some change when heated or cooled. Problem 3. b) For a constant volume gas thermometer p T = const. , therefore: p T = p T Δ p = p - p = p ( T T - 1) = 6 . 3 × 10 4 Pa ( 274 . 16 K 273 . 16 K - 1) = 231 Pa Problem 4. b) The area of the face of a coin is A = r 2 π = d 2 π/ 4. If a diameter increases by 0.17%, d 1 . 0017 d then A 1 . 0017 2 A , so the area will increase by 0.34%. Problem 5. b) Each side of the iron cube will expand due to heat: Δ a = α · Δ T · a = 10 - 5 / C · 50 C · 5 cm a = a + Δ a = 5 . 0025 cm From this we find the new volume to be V = a 3 = 125 . 1875 cm 3 . At 10 C volume of the cube is V = a 3 = 125 cm 3 , so we see that the volume will increase due to heating by 0 . 1875 cm 3 Problem 6. a) Heat is energy transfered due to a temperature difference. Problem 7. b) Heat has the same unit as work. Problem 8. a) The heat capacity of an object is equal to the amount of heat energy needed to raise its temperature by 1 C . 1

Problem 9. d) The specific heat of a substance is equal to the amount of heat energy per unit mass needed to raise the temperature of the substance by 1 C . Problem 10. d) The heat capacity at constant volume and the heat capacity at constant pressure have dif- ferent values because the system does work at constant pressure, but not at constant volume. Problem 11. b) From the change in internal energy we can find the change in temperature: Δ T = E int mc where m is the mass of the cube and c is the specific heat. The mass of the cube is m = ρ Al a 3 = 2 . 7 ρ H 2 O a 3 . Δ T = E int 2 . 7 ρ H 2 O a 3 0 . 217 c H 2 O Δ T = 1 . 71 E int ρ H 2 O a 3 c H 2 O The density of water is ρ H 2 O = 1 g/cm 3 and specific heat of water is 1 cal/g · C . Using that we find Δ T = 10 C Problem 12. b) If the objects are thermally isolated then the amount of heat that one object will lose is equal to the amount of heat the other object will gain. C A ( T final - T A ) = C B ( T B - T final ) Solving for T final we find: C A T final + C B T final = C B T B + C A T A and finally: T final = C B T B + C A T A C A + C B Problem 13. c) Using the formula from previous problem and C B = 2 C A we find T final = C B T B + C A T A C A + C B = C A (2 T B + T A ) 3 C A = 400 K 2
Problem 14. a) Energy needed to melt down A is ML where M is the mass of A and L is latent heat of fusion. The total heat energy that A receives is C A ( T final - T A ) + ML and this is equal to the heat energy lost by B. C B ( T B - T final ) = C A ( T final - T A ) + ML Solving for T final we find: C A T final + C B T final = C A T A + C B T B - ML T final = C A T A + C B T B - ML C A + C B Problem 15. a) During the time that latent heat is involved in a change of state the temperature does not change.

### 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.
