  2. How much heat transfer is required to first melt 0.800 kg of C ice and then raise its temperature?
  3. Explain how your answer supports the contention that the ice is more effective.

In 1986, a gargantuan iceberg broke away from the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica. It was approximately a rectangle 160 km long, 40.0 km wide, and 250 m thick.

(a) What is the mass of this iceberg, given that the density of ice is 917  kg/m 3 size 12{"917"`"kg/m" rSup { size 8{3} } } {} ?

(b) How much heat transfer (in joules) is needed to melt it?

How many grams of coffee must evaporate from 350 g of coffee in a 100-g glass cup to cool the coffee from 95 . C to 45 . C ? You may assume the coffee has the same thermal properties as water and that the average heat of vaporization is 2340 kJ/kg (560 cal/g). (You may neglect the change in mass of the coffee as it cools, which will give you an answer that is slightly larger than correct.)

33.0 g

(a) It is difficult to extinguish a fire on a crude oil tanker, because each liter of crude oil releases 2 . 80 × 10 7 J size 12{2 "." "80" times "10" rSup { size 8{7} } `J} {} of energy when burned. To illustrate this difficulty, calculate the number of liters of water that must be expended to absorb the energy released by burning 1.00 L of crude oil, if the water has its temperature raised from 20 . C to 100º C , it boils, and the resulting steam is raised to 300º C size 12{"300"`°C} {} . (b) Discuss additional complications caused by the fact that crude oil has a smaller density than water.

(a) 9.67 L

(b) Crude oil is less dense than water, so it floats on top of the water, thereby exposing it to the oxygen in the air, which it uses to burn. Also, if the water is under the oil, it is less efficient in absorbing the heat generated by the oil.

In some countries, liquid nitrogen is used on dairy trucks instead of mechanical refrigerators. A 3.00-hour delivery trip requires 200 L of liquid nitrogen, which has a density of 808  kg/m 3 size 12{"808"`"kg/m" rSup { size 8{3} } } {} .

Force equals mass time acceleration. Weight is a force and it can replace force in the equation. The acceleration would be gravity, which is an acceleration. To change from weight to mass divide by gravity (9.8 m/s^2).
