Unformatted text preview: Chapt. 19 Thermodynamics I: Temperature, Heat, First Law Multiple-Choice Problems 019 qmult 00100 1 4 4 easy deducto-memory: zeroth law and temperature 1. The zeroth law of thermodynamics allows us to define the function of state (or thermodynamic state variable): a) pressure. b) respiration. c) expiration. d) temperature. e) entropy. 019 qmult 00110 1 1 1 easy memory: temperature a ratio Extra keywords: physci I’ve finally concluded intensive quantities are ratios 2. Absolute or Kelvin temperature in modern physical understanding is, in fact, a ratio of quantities: these quantities can be determined by addition. There are a variety of ratios that can be used to determine temperature. The simplest ratio to understand is set by the ideal gas law. Because temperature is a ratio, a sample of any size above the microscopic level can have a) any temperature at all, except absolute zero (or so it seems) and infinite temperature....
