Chapter 4 Question 7 Answer: (3) 8 If we know the mass of the object and the speed it was thrown, we can calculate the kinetic energy. Then if we know the efficiency of the person throwing the object, we can determine the total energy expended to throw the object. If we know the change in height of the object and the acceleration of gravity , we can determine the overall change in energy (the person, plus the object). We assume this energy is all ends up as internal

Unformatted text preview: energy in the room. If we know the specific heat at constant volume, and the mass of air in the room (from knowing the volume and the density ), then we can find the change in temperature. This is what we got when we did it in class a couple of years ago. Class Response (2003): Class Response (2002):...
