Molecular speed of gas is generally $$v=\sqrt{\frac{3RT}{M}},$$where R is gas constant and M is molecular mass. Can we use this formula for the air as well, when the air is a mixture of different gasses?
I think I calculated part a correctly by extracting the cp (specific heat) of water from the table which is 4.188
Then calculated Q_dot by simply using the equation Q=m*c*deltaT=10.47kW
But I am stuck at part b, I know that the heat extracted from the water is the same as Q_L (rate of heat...
I know the inlet pressure, temperature and density along with the massflow rate across the orifice and the orifice cross section. Is there a way for me to calculate the drop in pressure across the orifice?
Hi, I'm currently taking Chemistry 101 and came across this equation that seems to contradict what I've learned before. I don't know the name of it, but here is the equation and its implication.
Now another equation we have learned is the Arrhenius equation, which is as follows:
If I...
In a free expansion, I know that we cannot use the equation dS=dQ/T...(1). Instead we use dS>dQ/T...(2).
The question is that why we can use △S=ncᵥln(T_f/T_i)+nRln(V_f/V_i) , which is derived from the equation(1), to calculate the entropy change? Shouldn’t it be a inequality too?

A gas obeying the equation of state PV=RT undergoes a hypothetical reversible process
PV^\frac{5}{3} e^\frac{-PV}{E_0} = c_1 Can we prove that the thermal compressibility of the gas undergoing this process tends to a constant value at very high temperature? Here, E_0...
In the normal conditions (sea level) water evaporates at 100 C.
In thermodynamics, we say: the amount of energy Q, can raise temperature of the liquid by the formula Q1=cm(t2-t1); when the liquid reaches the boiling point (100 C), we write Q2=Lm.
Q2 is entirely spent on changing liquid state...

I thought the pressure in a water line is in gauge pressure, but the solution suggests that 1630 kPa is in absolute pressure, do we always assume absolute pressure unless otherwise specified?

A cylinder, A, having Va=30L, is connected to a second cylinder B, of circular cross section. Cylinder B is fitted with a piston of radius = 5cm, which slides without friction/leaking. Initially A contains an ideal monatomic gas, in addition, Pa = 10MPa, Ta = 300K, Vb = 0...
An electric hot water heater takes in cold water at 15.8°C and delivers hot water. The hot water has a constant temperature of 45.6°C, when the "hot" faucet is left open all the time and the volume flow rate is 5.0 multiplied by 10-6 m3/s. What is the minimum power rating of the hot water...
