Chapter 10, Thermal Physics C HAPTER 10 Conceptual Problems C1. Metal lids on glass jars can often be loosened by running them under hot water. Why is this? a. The hot water is a lubricant. b. The metal and glass expand due to the heating, and the glass being of smaller radius expands less than the metal. c. The metal has a higher coefficient of thermal expansion than glass so the metal expands more than the glass thus loosening the connection. d. This is just folklore. C2. Why do vapor bubbles get larger in boiling water as they approach the surface? a. They only appear to get larger, this being a magnification effect due to looking through the water. b. The bubbles’ pressure increases as they rise. c. The pressure in the water decreases as the bubble moves toward the surface. d. Bubbles always get bigger after they form. C3. Suppose the pressure of 20 g of an ideal monatomic gas is tripled while its volume is halved. What happens to the internal energy of the gas? C4. The temperature of a quantity of ideal gas in a sealed container is increased from 0 C ° to 273 C ° . What happens to the rms speed of the molecules of the gas as a result of this temperature increase? C5. The noble gases, listed by increasing molecular weight, are He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, and Rn. If samples of 1 mole each of these gases are placed in separate containers and heated to 300 K, which gas has the greatest internal energy and the molecules of which gas have the highest rms speed? 145

### 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.
