## Additional Tutorial 2: Temperature and Heat (Part 2)

1.

How many joules of energy are required to raise the temperature of 100 g of
gold from 20.0C to 100C?
(cgold = 129 J kg1 oC1)

2.

## As part of an exercise routine, a 50.0-kg person climbs 10.0 meters up a

vertical rope. How many (food) Calories are expended in a single climb up the
rope?
(1 food Calorie = 103 calories)
Calorie]

3.

## A 75.0-kg weight watcher wishes to climb a mountain to work off the

equivalent of a large piece of chocolate cake rated at 500 (food) Calories. How
high must the person climb?
2.85
km]

4.

What mass of water at 25.0 C added to a Styrofoam cup containing two 50.0 g
ice cubes from a freezer at 15.0 C will result in a final temperature of 5.0C
for the drink? (Ignore the small amount of the heat gained by the cup)
Specific heat capacity of water is 4.186 103 J kg1 K1,
Latent heat of ice is 3.337 105 J kg1,
Specific heat capacity of ice is 2.1 103 J kg1 K1.

5.

## What mass of water at 25.0C must be allowed to come to thermal equilibrium

with a 3.00-kg gold bar at 100C in order to lower the temperature of the bar
to 50.0C?
g]

6.

An aluminum cup contains 225 g of water and a 40-g copper stirrer, all at
27C. A 400-g sample of silver at an initial temperature of 87C is placed in the
water. The stirrer is used to stir the mixture until it reaches its final
equilibrium temperature of 32C. Calculate the mass of the aluminum cup.
(cAl = 900 J kg1 oC1, cAg = 234 J kg1 oC1, cwater = 4186 J kg1 oC1)

7.

## A 100-g aluminum calorimeter contains 250 g of water. The two substances

are in thermal equilibrium at 10C. Two metallic blocks are placed in the
water. One is a 50-g piece of copper at 80C. The other sample has a mass of 70
g and is originally at a temperature of 100C. The entire system stabilizes at a
final temperature of 20C. Determine the specific heat of the unknown second
sample.
(cAl = 900 J kg1 oC1, cCu = 387 J kg1 oC1, cwater = 4186 J kg1 oC1)

8.

When a driver brakes an automobile, the friction between the brake drums
and the brake shoes converts the cars kinetic energy to thermal energy. If a 1
500-kg automobile traveling at 30 m/s comes to a halt, how much does the
temperature rise in each of the four 8.0-kg iron brake drums?
(The specific heat of iron is 448 J/kg C.)

9.

How much energy is required to change a 40-g ice cube from ice at 10C to
steam at 110C?
(Lf = 3.33 105 J kg-1, Lv = 2.26 106 J kg-1, cice = 2090 J kg-1 oC-1, cwater = 4186 J kg-1 oC-1,
cstream = 2010 J kg-1 oC-1)

10.

A 40-g block of ice is cooled to 78C and is then added to 560 g of water in an
80 g copper calorimeter at a temperature of 25C. Determine the final
temperature of the system consisting of the ice, water, and calorimeter. (If not
all the ice melts, determine how much ice is left.) Remember that the ice must
first warm to 0C, melt, and then continue warming as water. The specific heat
of ice is 0.500 cal/g C = 2090 J/kg C.
(Lf = 3.33 105 J kg-1, cice = 2090 J kg-1 oC-1, cwater = 4186 J kg-1 oC-1, cCu = 387 J kg-1 oC-1)

11.

## A 60.0-kg runner expends 300 W of power while running a marathon.

Assuming that 10.0% of the energy is delivered to the muscle tissue and that
the excess energy is removed from the body primarily by sweating, determine
the volume of bodily fluid (assume it is water) lost per hour.
(At 37.0C, the latent heat of vaporization of water is 2.41 106 J/kg.)
