According to me a=b cause what I have been learning is R is gas constant and hence it will be same for both. But the solution have says something else.
According to them Cp-Cv=R/M where M is the molecular mass of gas.
So is the above mentioned formula correct? Do we have to take that M term...
I thought I'd calculate how much heat was required to melt the Iron Throne, and then multiply that by the number of flame-gushes during the sack of Kings Landing, to get a total amount of energy expended. Then I'd convert that to calories and use the average number of calories per goat to...
The Second Law of Thermodynamics is not an easy topic. However, if you understand the concept of direction of thermodynamic processes and heat engines, you w...
First of all, I didn't know whether to pick this subforum or the engineering/compsci one, I understand this might need to be moved to a more appropriate subforum.
The general approach is fairly obvious, use implicit method to construct the tridiagonal matrix for Thomas method and solve. However...
Hey all,
I am working on a problem that goes like this:
The cargo space of a refrigerated truck whose inner
dimensions are 12 m 3 2.3 m 3 3.5 m is to be precooled
from 25°C to an average temperature of 5°C. The construc-
tion of the truck is such that a transmission heat gain occurs
at a rate...
First, I calculated the heat required for the ice to melt:
Q=mLf
Q=0.150×330
Q=49.5 J
Then, I calculated the final temperature of the water by forming the following equation:
Q=mcΔT
−49.5=(0.15+0.35)×4200×(Tf −80)
Tf=80.0 degrees Celcius
But the answer says 32 degrees Celsius.
I tried to conserve the charge on the left plates of both the capacitors as intially the total charge on both is 48 and at t=t0 the total charge is 36(on c1) +4V(V is the potential across c2) so i got V=3 and then i conserved the energy
Initial energy on both capacitor = final energy on both +...
When designing a panel, it is imperative that you keep the components inside at a temperature which they can operate optimally at; allowing the air temperature to go above this limit can cause component failure and fire.
To assist with calculating the air flow required to keep the components...
In collisions that are inelastic or partially elastic, how can we predict how much of the energy lost to the surroundings becomes heat, and how much becomes sound? What determines that fraction?
Hi,
I was just wondering about the efficiency of a cycle that is not Carnot cycle.
In that case one should use \eta = 1-\left|\frac{Q_{\rm out}}{Q_{\rm in}}\right|, where Q_{\rm in} and Q_{\rm out} are the amounts of heat absorbed and released during the cycle.
For instance, I guess that in...
This question is inspired by a comment that @thephystudent made where he said that
"The dephasing between the Bragg pulses is not unitary, I believe it can be explicitly written in Lindblad form and generates heat. I believe this Point of view is the same as (among others) the papers of...
When an object is hot its particles are moving faster than when is cold, right?
I've searched that particles are electrons and protons, so it means that if we warm a object the electrons will be moving or even accelerating. Every charge accelerated creates Electromagnetic Waves (or light)...
Heat is taken from food in the refrigerated space to the evaporator which has evaporated (I am assuming saturated vapor) refrigerant flowing through it.
My first stumble would be, if this is true, why doesn't the temperature increase for the fluid coming out of the evaporator (unless it is...
So, I converted the V (milk) to m3 and found 1.8E-4 m3 and i already know the density so i found the mass of the milk in the bottle.
Mmilk= 1.9E-7 kg
Normally i would try to connect it with the formulas above but i dont know temperature. I am not sure how i can connect the dots.
Can someone...
For a throttling valve C.V analysis, I am wondering why is it known that temperature remains the same for ideal gases. I understand that using the energy balance equation, I end up with h1=h2. Pretty simple so far. By breaking down enthalpy into its components u1+P1v1 = u2+P2v2 I realized that...
What does it actually mean from an intuitive standpoint? I don’t want to simply memorize the equation. What is it really and when can it be used? What is the usefulness of it?
Thanks.
What is the difference between the two? Also, as another question, for enthalpy, is it correct to define it to be the sum of internal energy and flow energy or is there another understanding for it?
Thanks in advance
This seems like a simple thermodynamics question but I would like clarification. So the absolute critical temperature is 132.5 K (-221.17 F) and the absolute critical pressure is 3.77Mpa (546.7 psi). I understand that for temperatures above the critical point, a pure substance undergoes an...
So, I am casually sifting through a chapter in a thermodynamics textbook talking about the multiphase process that pure substances go through. I understand how the P-v and T-v diagram works and that out of the three properties (specific volume, temperature and pressure), two of them are...
Does temperature increase when water is boiling at 100C in a closed system? I am picturing a scenario where I am boiling water in a pot to make pasta. However, I decide to close the pot as the water is still boiling. By doing this I am sealing away the system of study from the environment. Thus...
hello,
I had made an DIY alpha type Stirling engine for my physics project and now I have to write an report about the relationship between the heat given to the engine and the motion of the wheel.
I had searched a lot about Stirling engines and I learned about work, energy, efficiency...

After a free expansion to quadruple its volume, a mole of ideal diatomic gas is compressed back to its original volume isobarically and then cooled down to its original temperature. What is the minimum heat removed from the gas in the final step to restoring its state...
I'm trying to get a better handle on the actual physical phenomena underlying viscosity (for newtonian fluids). Something I could word in the format of "this happens (and this and this), and so the fluid resists flow." What I've found online is that when gasses are at higher temperatures, they...

My understanding of heat is the energy transferred as a result of temperature imbalance between systems.
If two systems at different temperatures are in contact with each other, a temperature change for both systems and an energy transfer Q is occuring.
It is known that Q=W for a closed system...
