763 Chapter 18 1. From Eq. 18-6, we see that the limiting value of the pressure ratio is the same as the absolute temperature ratio: (373.15 K)/(273.16 K) = 1.366. 2. We take p 3 to be 80 kPa for both thermometers. According to Fig. 18-6, the nitrogen thermometer gives 373.35 K for the boiling point of water. Use Eq. 18-5 to compute the pressure: N 3 373.35K (80kPa) = 109.343kPa. 273.16K 273.16K T p p The hydrogen thermometer gives 373.16 K for the boiling point of water and H 373.16K (80kPa) 109.287kPa. 273.16K p (a) The difference is p N p H = 0.056 kPa 0.06 kPa . (b) The pressure in the nitrogen thermometer is higher than the pressure in the hydrogen thermometer. 3. Let T L be the temperature and p L be the pressure in the left-hand thermometer. Similarly, let T R be the temperature and p R be the pressure in the right-hand thermometer. According to the problem statement, the pressure is the same in the two thermometers when they are both at the triple point of water. We take this pressure to be p 3 . Writing Eq. 18-5 for each thermometer, 3 3 (273.16K) and (273.16K) , L R L R p p T T p p we subtract the second equation from the first to obtain 3 (273.16K) . L R L R p p T T p First, we take T L = 373.125 K (the boiling point of water) and T R = 273.16 K (the triple point of water). Then, p L p R = 120 torr. We solve

CHAPTER 18 764 3 120torr 373.125K 273.16K (273.16K) p for p 3 . The result is p 3 = 328 torr. Now, we let T L = 273.16 K (the triple point of water) and T R be the unknown temperature. The pressure difference is p L p R = 90.0 torr. Solving the equation 90.0torr 273.16K (273.16K) 328torr R T for the unknown temperature, we obtain T R = 348 K. 4. (a) Let the reading on the Celsius scale be x and the reading on the Fahrenheit scale be y . Then 9 5 32 y x . For x = –71°C, this gives y = –96°F. (b) The relationship between y and x may be inverted to yield 5 9 ( 32) x y . Thus, for y = 134 we find x 56.7 on the Celsius scale. 5. (a) Let the reading on the Celsius scale be x and the reading on the Fahrenheit scale be y . Then 9 5 32 y x . If we require y = 2 x , then we have 9 2 32 (5)(32) 160 C 5 x x x which yields y = 2 x = 320°F. (b) In this case, we require 1 2 y x and find 1 9 (10)(32) 32 24.6 C 2 5 13 x x x     which yields y = x /2 = –12.3°F. 6. We assume scales X and Y are linearly related in the sense that reading x is related to reading y by a linear relationship y = mx + b . We determine the constants m and b by solving the simultaneous equations: which yield the solutions m = 40.00/500.0 = 8.247 10 –2 and b = –59.69. With these values, we find x for y = 50.00: 70.00 125.0 30.00 360.0 m b m b

We assume scale X is a linear scale in the sense that if its reading is x then it is related to a reading y on the Kelvin scale by a linear relationship y = mx + b . We determine the constants m and b by solving the simultaneous equations: 373.15 ( 53.5) 273.15 ( 175) m b m b

### What students are saying

• 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.
