Chem_2R03 HW3_Solutions Sept 28 2006 All gases are assumed to be ideal unless otherwise specified 1. When we are interested in biological energy resources and metabolism, we need to know, among other things, the work that an organism has to do to carry out the normal activities of being alive. How much metabolic energy must a bird of mass 200 g exert to fly to a height of 20 m? Neglect all losses due to friction, physiological imperfection, and the acquisition of kinetic energy. Solutions: ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 -2 1 kg 20 m 200 g 9.80 m s 1000 g 39 J w hmg w w = = = 2. The heat capacity of air is much smaller than that of water, and relatively modest amounts of heat are needed to change its temperature. This is one of the reasons why desert regions, though very hot during the day, are bitterly cold at night. The heat capacity of air at room temperature (298K) and pressure (1 atm) is approximately 21 J K -1 mol -1 . How much energy is required to raise the temperature of a room of dimensions 5.5 m × 6.5 m × 3.0 m by 10 o C?

The molar heat capacity of water is 75.3 J K -1 mol -1 . How much energy (heat) is needed to heat up by 40ºC 250 g of water for a cup of coffee?
