Unformatted text preview: lls, they can only
exchange heat with one anot her. In other words, whatev er heat leaves the bis muth must
enter the alumina. This can be stated mathematically: qBi = "qAl2O3
The minus sign tells us that the direction of heat flow in the alumina is opposite that of the bis muth
(e.g., heat flowing out of the bis muth is flowing into the alumina.) This equality immediat ely tells us
how to determine the final temperature of the system- sinc e it must be the same in the bis muth and

) A few comments: In writing the left-hand ex pression, we are making the assumption that the Bi will
cool enough to pass through the melting point and solidify. Note that because we are passing from
high to low ! mperature, we have a minus sign in f ront of the enthalpy of melting- we must remove
heat from t he sample to freez e it. To proceed, we ne...
