A single ice cube (m=0.25kg) at 0 C⁰ is dropped into a large insolated container of alcohol at room temperature (23 C⁰). Draw a complete Energy System Diagram for the process of these two substances reaching thermal equilibrium. You should assume the ice cube completely melts in this process. 2. Below is the heat curve for a brick of an unknown metal. Considering that the metal is currently solid and at 150 K , how much heat will be needed to melt exactly ½ of the initial amount?

Unformatted text preview: Since we know the brick starts out at 150 K , we know where on the heat curve we begin (green arrow). To melt half of our brick, we need to travel half the way to completely melted, which will be to the red arrow. The question asks us to find the energy needed to go from the green arrow to the red arrow. This is 4250kJ-750kJ= 3500kJ .
