Chapter 20:Thermal Properties
Issues to address...How does a material respond to heat?heat capacityHow do we define and measure...coefficient of thermal expansionthermal conductivitythermal shock resistanceHow do ceramics, metals, and polymers rank?
20-1Anderson 205-
Heat Capacity
General: The ability of a material to absorb heat Quantitative: Energy required to increase TC
heat capacity:Jmolenergy:temperature change: KJmol-K
Cp: Heat capacity at constant pressureCv: Heat capacity at constant volume
20-2Anderson 205-
Two ways to measure heat capacity:
Heat Capacity vs T
Heat capacityincreases with temperaturereaches a limiting value of 3RAtomic view:Energy is stored as atomic vibrations.As T goes up, so does avg. energy of atomic vibr.
Debye temperature(usually less than Troom)T (K)Heat capacity, Cv3R
DCv= constant

Atomic View: Mean bond length increases with T
