    Speed at Which Point Charge in Approaching origin / loss of charge at constant rate

    Re: Speed at Which Point Charge in Approaching origin / loss of charge at constant ra 1.71 kg is correct. Still lost on b; F = 16.794 N and it is only in y direction

    Speed at Which Point Charge in Approaching origin / loss of charge at constant rate

    a)Point charge Q = +7.25 μC is fixed at the origin. Point charge q = +1.60 μC is now carefully placed on the positive y-axis, and it floats at (0,7.88). Find the mass of q. b) Refer to question a. Suppose that, as charge q is floating, the point charge Q at the origin begins to lose its...

    Pressure, Volume and Temp Change WORK done?

    Pressure, Volume and Temp Change...WORK done??? n = 9.95 moles of an ideal gas are slowly heated from initial pressure P1 = .922 atm and initial volume V1 = 679 L to final pressure Pf = 1.16 atm and final volume Vf = 1073 L. Find T1, the initial temperature of the gas. If the plot of this...

    Thermodynamics problem - need to find amount of water that boils

    Re: Thermodynamics problem -- need to find amount of water that boils Yes -- kilograms, so that is not the issue. Specific question is: Find the amount of water that boils. But below question it also states "Note: reaching the boiling point is not enough, the question asks for the amount of...

    Thermodynamics problem - need to find amount of water that boils

    Re: Thermodynamics problem -- need to find amount of water that boils Are we sure there is a phase change for the lead? If so, is it definitely the full amount?

    Thermodynamics problem - need to find amount of water that boils

    Re: Thermodynamics problem -- need to find amount of water that boils FYI: Below answer is incorrect. Please help!! What am I doing wrong now??? 257000 + 303362.8 = 223931.7444 + Q Q = 336.4310556 kJ m = 336.4310556 / 2260 kJ/kg = .148 kg

    Thermodynamics problem - need to find amount of water that boils

    Re: Thermodynamics problem -- need to find amount of water that boils Ok...what about this: 257000 + 303362.8 = 223931.7444 + Q Q = 336.4310556 kJ m = 336.4310556 / 2260 kJ/kg = .148 kg

    Thermodynamics problem - need to find amount of water that boils

    Re: Thermodynamics problem -- need to find amount of water that boils .658 Kg is the mass of the water; it's given in the problem. How about this: Energy released when lead turns from liquid to solid = (10.28)(25kJ/Kg) = 257,000J 257000 + (10.28)(130)(327 - T) = (.658)(4186)(T - 18.7) T =...

    Thermodynamics problem - need to find amount of water that boils

    Re: Thermodynamics problem -- need to find amount of water that boils Is the specific heat of lead needed to calculate the heat loss of the lead in addition to the energy released from the phase change (change from liquid to solid)?
