Physics 7A DLM 13 Overview CG 3.3 Modes and Equipartition Review and or Finish CG 3.3 Activities (NO NEW ACTIVITY SHEET) Act-3.3.1 Modes and Equipartition (~20 min) Act-3.3.2 Using Modes to Interpret Data (~20 min) CG 3.4Analyzing Behavior of Real SubstancesAct-3.4.1 Using the Particle Model of Thermal Energy to Understand the Learning GoalsMicroscopic Basis of Heat Capacity (~40 min) • Be able to determine heat capacity using a graph of energy vs. temperature. • Really understand the connection between heat capacity, modes, and the particle model of thermal energy. Act-3.4.2 Making Sense of Heat Capacity Data (Finish as FNT) (~40 min) Learning Goals • Recognize and be able to explain trends in constant-volume molar heat capacities (solids and monatomic, diatomic, and triatomic gases). • Know that some modes are only activated at high temperatures. • Be able to explain the effect of activating additional modes on the heat capacity of a substance.
