TEMPERATURE AND HEAT E XERCISES Section 16.1 Heat, Temperature, and Thermodynamic Equilibrium 14. We assume that the U.S. meteorologist predicts the same temperature, but expresses it on the Fahrenheit scale (Equation 16.2): 9 5 ( 15) 32 5 F. F T = - + = ° 15. I NTERPRET This problem is about converting temperature from the Fahrenheit scale to the Celsius scale. D EVELOP The two temperature scales are related by Equation 16.2: 9 32 5 F C T T = + E VALUATE Solving the above equation for the Celsius temperature, we obtain 5 5 ( 32) (68 32) 20 C 9 9 C F T T = - = - = ° A SSESS This is a useful result to remember, since 20 C, ° or 68 F ° is a typical room temperature. 16. Temperature differences on the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales are related by (9/5) , F C T T = 9 5 so ( )(10 C ) 18 F. ° = ° (Note that a temperature difference and a temperature reading are not the same, even though both are specified in the same units. The notation C ° versus C ° is an attempt to clarify this distinction, but is not universally accepted or consistently applied.) 17. I NTERPRET Given both Fahrenheit and Celsius scales, we want to know when F T and C T are numerically equal. D EVELOP The two temperature scales are related by Equation 16.2: 9 32 5 F C T T = + The condition that the readings are the same numerically is 9 5 ( ) 32 . F C C T T T = + = E VALUATE The above equation can be solved to give 5 (32) 40 4 C F T T = - = - = A SSESS This is the only temperature in which both scales yield the same reading: 40 F 40 C. - ° = - ° 18. Equations 16.1 and 16.2 give 77.3 273.15 196 C, C T = - - ° . and 9 5 ( )( 196) 32 321 F. F T = - + = - ° 19. I NTERPRET This problem is about converting temperature from the Celsius scale to the Fahrenheit scale. D EVELOP The two temperature scales are related by Equation 16.2: 9 5 32. F C T T = + E VALUATE Solving the above equation for the Fahrenheit temperature, we obtain 9 (39.1) 32 102.4 F 5 F T = + = ° A SSESS The temperature is way above the normal body temperature of 98.6 F ° (or 37 C ° ). Call the doctor immediately! Section 16.2 Heat Capacity and Specific Heat 20. I NTERPRET We find the heat capacity of a large concrete block. We know the mass of the block and its specific heat. 16.1 16

16.2 Chapter 16 D EVELOP The specific heat of concrete is given in Table 16.1 as 880 J/kg K. c = We multiply this by the mass 55,000 kg m = of the block to find the heat capacity of the block. E VALUATE 6 48 10 J/K. C mc = = × A SSESS This is a large value, but then it takes a large amount of heat to change the temperature of a 55-tonne block of concrete. 21. I NTERPRET We find the energy necessary to change the temperature of an object by a given amount. This involves the heat capacity of the object and the temperature. D
