You leave a pastry in the refrigerator on a plate and ask your roommate to take it out before you get home so you can eat it at room temperature, the way you like it. Instead, your roommate plays video games for hours. When you return, you notice that the pastry is still cold, but the game console has become hot. Annoyed, and knowing that the pastry will not be good if it is microwaved, you warm up the pastry by unplugging the console and putting it in a clean trash bag (which acts as a perfect calorimeter) with the pastry on the plate. After a while, you find that the equilibrium temperature is a nice, warm 38.3 ° C . You know that the game console has a mass of 2.1 kg. Approximate it as having a uniform initial temperature of 4 5 ° C . The pastry has a mass of 0.16 kg and a specific heat of 3.0 k J/ ( kg · ºC ) , and is at a uniform initial temperature of 4.0 ° C . The plate is at the same temperature and has a mass of 0.24 kg and a specific heat of 0.90 J/ ( kg · ºC ) . What is the specific heat of the console?

1.7 kJ/ ( kg · ºC )

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 . (a) Calculate the heat transfer necessary to evaporate this amount of liquid nitrogen and raise its temperature to 3.00 ° C . (Use c P and assume it is constant over the temperature range.) This value is the amount of cooling the liquid nitrogen supplies. (b) What is this heat transfer rate in kilowatt-hours? (c) Compare the amount of cooling obtained from melting an identical mass of 0 - ° C ice with that from evaporating the liquid nitrogen.

a. 1.57 × 10 4 kcal ; b. 18.3 kW · h ; c. 1.29 × 10 4 kcal

A 30.0-g ice cube at its melting point is dropped into an aluminum calorimeter of mass 100.0 g in equilibrium at 24.0 ° C with 300.0 g of an unknown liquid. The final temperature is 4.0 ° C . What is the heat capacity of the liquid?

(a) Calculate the rate of heat conduction through a double-paned window that has a 1.50 -m 2 area and is made of two panes of 0.800-cm-thick glass separated by a 1.00-cm air gap. The inside surface temperature is 15.0 ° C , while that on the outside is −10.0 ° C . ( Hint: There are identical temperature drops across the two glass panes. First find these and then the temperature drop across the air gap. This problem ignores the increased heat transfer in the air gap due to convection.) (b) Calculate the rate of heat conduction through a 1.60-cm-thick window of the same area and with the same temperatures. Compare your answer with that for part (a).

a. 83 W; b. 1.97 × 10 3 W ; The single-pane window has a rate of heat conduction equal to 1969/83, or 24 times that of a double-pane window.

where the solving of questions of this topic?
Bonifasi Reply
According to Nernst's distribution law there are about two solvents in which solutes undergo equilibria. But i don't understand how can you know which of two solvents goes bottom and one top? I real want to understand b'coz some books do say why they prefer one to top/bottom.

you are given two metal spheres mounted on portable insulating support. Find a way to give them equal and opposite charges. you may use a glass rod rubbed with silk but may not touch it to the spheres. Do the spheres have to be of equal size for your method to work?

in the 2nd example, for chapter 8.2 on page 3/3, I don't understand where the value 48uC comes from, I just couldn't get that value in my calculator.
Anita Reply
are you talking about the capacitance combination problem
sam
please write the problem or send a snap of th page....I don't have the book in my vicinity.
SABYASACHI
yes, the 2nd example called Network of Capacitors on page 3/3 of section 8.2.
Anita
12 V = (Q1/12uF)+(Q1/6uF). So, Q1 = 12x4 = 48 uC.
sam
ohhhh OK thanks so much!!!!!!!
Anita
hello guys,, I'm asking to know something about, How can i know which solvent goes down and which does up in determination of partion coefficient(Nernst's distribution law). Please Need help because i have seen many contradictions via few of text books even some videos on youtube they don't say

what is electromagnetic force. do electric and magnetic force happen differently
Short Reply
yes
Renugadevi
yes
Pranay
why
Godson
how?
Godson
when electric charge exert force on another electric charge then this force is known as electrostatic force and when a magnet exert force on another magnet then this force is known as magnetic force and when force exerted on magnet due to varying electric field then this electromagnetic force

what is difference between heat and temperature?
Qasim Reply
temperature is the measure of degree of hotness or coldness. on the other hand, heat is the form of energy, which causes temperature. So we can safely say, heat is the reason and temperature is its consequence.
