THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS
Solution
(a) There are 2 directions for each molecule, so the number of states is 24 = 16. (b) Two of these, all to the right or all to the left, have all molecules moving in the same direction. (c) If all state

THERMODYNAMICS TEMPERATURE AND HEAT
Solution
Temperature dierences on the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales are related by TF = (9/5) TC , so ( 9 ) 5 (10 C ) = 18 F. (Note that a temperature dierence and a temperature reading are not the same, even tho
