Unformatted text preview: Chapter L - Problems Blinn College - Physics 2425 - Terry Honan Problem L.1 A constant volume gas thermometer is calibrated using dry ice (at T = - 80.0 °C) and boiling water (at T = 100 °C). The pressure with dry ice is 1.81 atm and with boiling water is 3.49 atm. (a) With this calibration, what is the value of absolute zero given by the thermometer? (b) What is the pressure at 0 °C? Problem L.2 At what temperature are the numerical values of the Fahrenheit and Celcius scales the same? Problem L.3 Liquid nitrogen is at 77 K. What is this in Celcius and in Fahrenheit? Problem L.4 An aluminum hole has a diameter of 5 cm. An aluminum rod is slightly too big to fit in the hole; it has a 5.01 cm diameter. By how much must the temperature of the rod be lowered to fit in the hole? (For aluminum a = 24 μ 10- 6 ë C°) Problem L.5 Gasoline has a coefficient of volume expansion of b = 960 μ 10- 6 ë C° and steel has a linear expansion coefficient of a = 11 μ 10- 6 ë C°. Suppose a steel tank is 98% filled with gasoline at 20°C. If the temperature is increased, at what temperature willC°....
