18.7 Suppose that on a linear scale X, water boils at −53.5

X and freezes at −170

K on the X scale? (Approximate water’s boiling point as 373 K.)
The difference between boiling and freezing points on this scale:

So a 116.5

C, a rod is exactly 20.05 cm long on a steel ruler. Both the rod and the ruler are placed in an oven at
270

C, where the rod now measures 20.11 cm on the same ruler. What is the coefficient of linear expansion for
the material of which the rod is made of?
Both the rod and the ruler will expand but not necessarily at the same rate. The original length of the rod is
L = 20.05 cm. The length of the rod after a 250

C increase in temperature is equal to a 20.11 cm length of
steel after the steel has also expanded. The expanded length of the steel is:

18.E1 An energetic athlete can use up all the energy from a diet of 4000 Cal/day. If he were to use this energy up
at a steady rate, how would his rate of energy use compare with the power of a 100 W bulb? (The power of
100 W is the rate at which the bulb converts electrical energy to heat and the energy of visible light.)
We just need to convert this to Joules per second (i.e., Watts) keeping in mind that this is 4000 food calories
or 4000 kcal:
4000 kcal/day ×(4.180 J/cal)

So the athlete uses up energy at a rate of roughly two 100 W bulbs.

30 shakes each minute. Neglecting any loss of thermal energy by the flask, how long must he shake the flask
until the water reaches 100

The energy gained in one 30 cm drop (assuming no losses) is mg∆h. The energy required to raise the temper-

(b) path B.0 m3 − 1.33 × 103 J = 43 g 333 J/g The final temperature is 0◦ C with 57 g of ice and 243 g of water. The heat required to raise the temperature of the ice and to melt the ice will be half of what they were for part (a): Q1 = 1. mi = 50 g.0 m3 and p0 = 40P a.33 × 104 J Lowering the temperature of the water from by 25◦ C releases an amount of heat equal to Q3 = mc (T0 − 0◦ C) = (200 g)(4.

If V0 = 1.: (a) Here is the chart filled out. the system is doing positive work. (h) What is the net work done by the system as it moves once through the cycle ABCA? (a) Here is the chart filled out.635 × 103 J = 2. as shown in the p-V diagram of Fig. There will be m = m + mi = 250 g of water at the end at a temperature of m cT = Q3 − Q1 − Q2 = 2.0 m3 . a gas sample expands from V0 to 4.0 m3 ) = 75 J 2 2 (a) All the work done at the lower pressure.190 J/g ·◦ C) HRW 18. we must have Q > 0. how much work is done by the gas if its pressure changes with volume via (a) path A. or a zero in each indicated cell.and to melt the ice it requires Q2 = mi LF = (100 g)(333 J/g) = 3.0 m3 − 1. WB = 1 1 (P1 + P2 )∆V = (40 N/m2 + 10 N/m2 )(4. and (c) path C? The work done is just the “area” under the curve in a P − V diagram. The vertical scale is set by Vs = 4.44 A thermodynamic system is taken from state A to state B to state C. .0 m3 ) = 30 J HRW 18.635 × 103 J → T = 2. (b) Now we only have one ice cube. cooling the water to 0◦ C is enough to raise the temperature of the ice up to 0◦ C and to melt part of the ice.095 × 104 J Thus. 18-36.665 × 104 J and Q1 + Q2 < Q3 The last relation tells us that there will be some energy left over after raising the temperature of the ice and melting the ice.

0 J. W .0 × 103 min 30 shakes/min → N= c∆T (4180 J/kg ·◦ C)(85◦ C) = = 1.0 J.180 J/cal) = 194J/s = 194 W 86400 s So the athlete uses up energy at a rate of roughly two 100 W bulbs. which is the work done by the system. so W = 0. Since ∆V < 0. Knowing the internal energy change must be zero in a closed cycle.0 J of heat were removed from the system during process CA. N : N mg∆h = mc∆T The time for this number of shakes is ∆t = It would take about 2. We want the heat transfer dring CA. If he were to use this energy up at a steady rate. W = −200 J. For the whole cycle we must have ∆Eint = 0 so we must have ∆Eint < 0 here. no energy is transferred as heat during process BC.E2 A chef. 18. what are the values (including algebraic signs) of (a) W . The energy required to raise the temperature is mc∆T .) We just need to convert this to Joules per second (i.0 J = −5.48 Gas held within a chamber passes through the cycle shown in Fig.2 × 105 g∆h (9. the chef making 30 shakes each minute.0 cal = −293 J.0 cal is extracted from the system as heat.80 N/kg)(0. ∆Eint = 0 → QAB + QBC + QCA − WABCA = 0 QCA = WABCA − QAB − QBC = 15. Since ∆Eint < 0 and W < 0.0 J. this implies.e. 18-40. Suppose that he uses tap water at 15◦ C and the water falls 30 cm each shake. the system is doing positive work. Since ∆Eint > 0 and W > 0. and the net work done during the cycle is 15. we must have ∆Eint > 0. decides to boil the water for his wife’s coffee by shaking it in a thermos flask. and (c) ∆Eint ? (a) Since work is done on the system. 18. Determine the energy transferred by the system as heat during process CA if the energy added as heat QAB during process AB is 20.8 days of shaking. (b) Q. 1 W = − ∆P ∆V = −20 J 2 HRW 18. work is done on the system (or the system is doing negative work). the change in internal energy will be ∆Eint = Q − W = −293 J − (−200 J) = −93 J HRW 18.0 J − 20.A→B B→C C→A Since ∆V > 0. must be negative. so W < 0. (c) Finally. (b) Heat is extracted from the system so Q = −70.46 Suppose 200 J of work is done on a system and 70. We can find the number of shakes. how long must he shake the flask until the water reaches 100◦ C? The energy gained in one 30 cm drop (assuming no losses) is mg∆h. (b) The work done by the system is equal to the area under the curve but negative here because the loop is CCW.2 × 105 shakes = 4. We are given QAB = 20. on finding his stove out of order. we must have Q < 0. the system is not doing work.E1 An energetic athlete can use up all the energy from a diet of 4000 Cal/day. Since Q > 0 and W = 0. 1. how would his rate of energy use compare with the power of a 100 W bulb? (The power of 100 W is the rate at which the bulb converts electrical energy to heat and the energy of visible light. In the sens of the first law of thermodynamics. Neglecting any loss of thermal energy by the flask. QBC = 0 (so BC is an adiabat). so W > 0. we must have Q > 0.30 m) 4 .. and WABCA = 15. Watts) keeping in mind that this is 4000 food calories or 4000 kcal: 1 day 4000 kcal/day × (4. Since ∆V = 0.0 J.0 J So 5.
