“Bomb” Calorimetry Used to measure heats and heat capacities Calibrate total heat capacity of the “can” by observing increase in temperature from know electrical energy input (electrically generated heat) Observe change in temperature with unknown heat input for phase change, or temperature change with chemical reaction (eg. combustion)

Forms of Energy On the level of discrete (classical) particles, all energy can be classified as (1) kinetic or (2) potential . (1) Kinetic energy is the energy of motion, K = (1/2) mv 2 (2) Potential energy is associated with forces, F x = - U/ x (the force always tends to lower the potential energy) Two important forms of potential energy are: electrical : U el = q 1 q 2 /(4 πε 0 R); F el = -q 1 q 2 /(4 πε 0 R 2 ) gravitational : U g = Gm 1 m 2 /R; F g = -Gm 1 m 2 /R 2

Interchange of Kinetic and Potential Energy At the top of its trajectory, the ball stops and has no kinetic energy. At the top the ball has more potential energy because it has been higher in the gravitational field. At the bottom of the trajectory, the ball is moving rapidly and so its kinetic energy is highest. However, the ball loses potential energy as is rolls to a lower point in the gravitational field.

    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.
