Oh so you are saying that the steam will condensate? If that is the case, the total amount of water will become 500g + 100g = 600 g.
But how does that happen? Isn't it water does not remove enough latent heat from the steam?
Homework Statement
100 g of steam at 100 °C is mixed with 500 g of water at 25 °C. What is the final temperature of the mixture?
Homework Equations
Q= mL
Q= mcΔT
The Attempt at a Solution
Heat given by to water = heat loss at condensation
= mLv...

I don't know how to begin.
Thanks a lot for your help !

A meter stick is 200 g. A mass of 1 kg is placed in 20 cm, and another mass of 5 kg is placed in 100 cm.
So the diagram will be like:
Homework Equations
Why do we have to include M2? And why is the mass of M2 is 200g? Isn't the whole meter stick weight...
Hi guys. I just got a general question.
Homework Statement
I learned about impulse today in class, and I just wonder why it exists?
Impulse is defined as "the change in momentum", but momentum is always conserved in elastic collision.
Homework Equations
So if momentum is conserved, why...
Yea I guess the data I got is probably not accurate.
By the way,I am just asking, when I calculate the KE of the cart, should I use the mass of the cart only or the total mass of the system?
And should I consider PE of the hanging mass?
The work done by tension is supposed to equal to the change in kinetic energy of the cart, but I don't know why I can't get that result. There is a huge difference between the work and change in kinetic energy.

Homework Statement
A student is skateboarding down a ramp that is 5.9 m long and inclined at 12° with respect to the horizontal. The initial speed of the skateboarder at the top of the ramp is 2.3 m/s. Neglect friction and find the speed at the bottom of the ramp.

I learn that inertia means the tendency an object will remain from changes. Heavier object has higher inertia, which means higher tendency to resist change.
So, here is an example from my teacher.
A car accelerates, the driver is pulled backward and hit the rear of his seat. This is due to...
I know that "negative acceleration" can be slowing down, or going backward and speeding up. I read the old posts here and I am still confused.
If no velocity are given, and you only know that the acceleration is, say, a= -5 m/s^2, how do you know the object is going forward or backward?
