Thus, E(aluminum) = (900 J/kg K)(2 kg)(80 K) = 1.44 x 10 5 J E(steel) = (486 J/kg K)(2 kg)(80 K) = 7.78 x 10 4 J E(glass) = (840 J/kg K)(2 kg)(80 K) = 1.34 x 10 5 J E(HDPE) = (1850 J/kg K)(2 kg)(80 K) = 2.96 x 10 5 J 19.2 We are asked to determine the temperature to which 10 lb m of brass initially at 25 C would be raised if 65 Btu of heat is supplied. This is accomplished by utilization of a modified form of Equation (19.1) as T = DQ mc p in which Q is the amount of heat supplied, m is the mass of the specimen, and c p is the specific heat. From Table 19.1, c p = 375 J/kgK, which in Customary U.S. units is just c p = (375 J/kg  K) 2.39 x 104 /  1 /  = 0.090/  Thus 244 T = 65 Btu 10 lb m ( ) 0.090 Btu/ lb m F ( ) = 72.2 F and T f = T o + = 77 + 72.2 = 149.2 (65.1 29 19.3 (a) This problem asks that we determine the heat capacities at constant pressure, C p , for copper, iron, gold, and nickel. All we need do is multiply the c p values in Table 19.1 by the atomic weight, taking into account the conversion from grams to kilograms. Thus, for Cu C p = (386 J/kg  K)(1 kg/1000 g)(63.55 g/mol) = 24.5 J/mol  K For Fe C p = (448 J/kg  K)(1 kg/1000 g)(55.85 g/mol) = 25.0 J/mol  K For Au C p = (128 J/kg  K)(1 kg/1000 g)(196.97 g/mol) = 25.2 J/mol  K For Ni C p = (443 J/kg  K)(1 kg/1000 g)(58.69 g/mol) = 26.0 J/mol  K (b) These values of C p are very close to one another because room temperature is considerably above the Debye temperature for these metals, and, therefore, the values of C p should be about equal to 3R [(3)(8.31 J/molK) = 24.9 J/molK], which is indeed the case for all four of these metals. 19.4 (a) For aluminum, C v at 50 K may be approximated by Equation (19.2), since this temperature is significantly below the Debye temperature. The value of C v at 30 K is given, and thus, we may compute the constant A as A = C v T 3 = 0.81 J/ mol K (30 K) 3 = 3 x 105 J/mol  K 4 245 Therefore, at 50 K C v = AT 3 = 3 x 105 J/mol K 4 ( 29 (5029 3 = 3.75/ and c v = (3.75 J/mol  K)(1 mol/26.98 g)(1000 g/kg) = 139 J/kg  K (b) Since 425 K is above the Debye temperature, a good approximation for C v is C v = 3R = (3)(8.31 J/mol K) = 24.9 J/mol K And, converting this to specific heat c v = (24.9 J/mol  K)(1 mol/26.98 g)(1000 g/kg) = 925 J/kg  K 19.5 For copper, we want to compute the Debye temperature, D , given the expression for A in Equation (19.2) and the heat capacity at 10 K. First of all, let us determine the magnitude of A , as A = C v T 3 = (0.78 J / mol K)(1 kg /1000(0....
