    Young's Modulus Question

    1. Homework Statement A nano-tube having cross sectional area A and length L extends ΔL when a force F is applied normally to one of the cross-sectional surfaces. Show that if N tubes are connected end-to-end the then Young's modulus of the fibre does not change. 2. Homework Equations 3...

    GPS Altitude

    Thanks for such an informative post! Pressure sensors do seem ideal for aviation rather than gps.

    GPS Altitude

    Yes I guess when it comes to my self guided quad-copter i'm going to have to set the initial altitude to the reference or maybe use an external altitude sensor.

    GPS Altitude

    russ_watters, that link you just sent me explains a lot. Hence the readings I obtained. Thank you for your help! And sorry about that daven my bad!

    GPS Altitude

    I'm a programmer/electronics student and I recently bought a GPS which I hooked up serially with my laptop. I didn't get into much detail of encoding the string which is output from the TX/RX pins of the GPS so I downloaded, a ready made program called "ublox 6". Longitude and latitude are...

    Thermodynamics First Law Question

    Thanks for your reply! Alright I see what you mean. Second attempt: Number of moles in gas using ideal gas equation: R= 8.314 4621 J mol-1 K-1 (Given in exam paper booklet): n=(PV/RT) n=(1.5x105Pa*1.25x10-3m3)/(8.314*300K) n=0.075 Change in temperature using Charles law would be: 372K...

    Thermodynamics First Law Question

    1. Homework Statement Can someone help me confirm if I answered correctly please? a) A sample of gas is enclosed in a cylinder by a piston. The cylinder is given 225J of energy which expands and pushes the piston 16cm outwards against an atmospheric pressure of 1.01x105Pa. i) give the...

    Heat Transfer and capacity

    Sorry lagg. Ignore this post.

    Heat Transfer and capacity

    (Heat lost changing state + Heat lost due to change in temperature) = Heat Gained When changing water to steam it would be heat required. But when steam is changed back to water, is it heat energy gained or lost?

    Heat Transfer and capacity

    Oh alright this makes more sense now. So the mass is:8.6x10-3kg

    Heat Transfer and capacity

    I'm confused, now I get the idea that its written like this? (ml+cΔT)=mc∆θ
  13. B

    Heat Transfer and capacity

    Oh right. mc∆θ=mc∆θ m*4200*2.26x106Jkg-1*(100-80)=0.08*4200*(60) m=1.06x10-7kg Q=ml is the energy used to convert the water into steam and vice versa without a change in temperature, and the specific heat capacity * change in temperature indicates the heat lost?

    Heat Transfer and capacity

    Like this? Sorry if I might be frustrating you, I don't blame you. Left side is the water added to the cup, assuming the water is at 100C. mc∆θ=mc∆θ m*4200(100-80)=0.08*4200*(60) m=0.24kg
