Chapt. 19 Thermodynamics I: Temperature, Heat, First LawMultiple-Choice Problems019 qmult 00100 1 4 4 easy deducto-memory: zeroth law and temperature1. The zeroth law of thermodynamics allows us to deFne the function of state (or thermodynamicstate variable):a) pressure.b) respiration.c) expiration.d) temperature.e) entropy.019 qmult 00110 1 1 1 easy memory: temperature a ratioExtra keywords:physci I’ve Fnally concluded intensive quantities are ratios2. Absolute or Kelvin temperature in modern physical understanding is, in fact, a ratio ofquantities: these quantities can be determined by addition. There are a variety of ratios thatcan be used to determine temperature. The simplest ratio to understand is set by the ideal gaslaw. Because temperature is a ratio, a sample of any size above the microscopic level can havea) any temperature at all, except absolute zero (or so it seems) and inFnite temperature.b) only negative temperatures.c) only temperatures proportional to its volume.
