The Question is in the paint document.

My question to this problem is at the bottom of thread 1

Equation:

T = T

T

I am not 100% sure what P and P

I believe P is the net pressure (Pressure supplied by the bulb minus the pressure opposing the pressure supplied by the bulb)

and P

Solution:

All Temp are in Kelvin (K)

Define:

T

P

T

P

First Step:

Let T

T

T

Because (T

Solving for P

P

Second Step:

Let T

T

Solving for T:

T = T

QUESTION:

Because I don't know If T>T

How am I suppose to know?

My question to this problem is at the bottom of thread 1

Equation:

T = T

_{3}/P_{3}P. WhereT

_{3}is the temperature (K) of water at triple pointI am not 100% sure what P and P

_{3}stand for (can someone tell me)I believe P is the net pressure (Pressure supplied by the bulb minus the pressure opposing the pressure supplied by the bulb)

and P

_{3}is the pressure at triple point.Solution:

All Temp are in Kelvin (K)

Define:

T

_{L}= Temp of left bulbP

_{L}= Pressure of left bulbT

_{R}= Temp of right bulbP

_{R}= Pressure of right bulbFirst Step:

Let T

_{L}= T_{3}and T_{R}= Boiling Point of Water = (BP)T

_{L}- T_{R}= T_{3}- (BP) =T

_{3}/P_{3}(P_{L}- P_{R})Because (T

_{L}- T_{R})<0 Then (P_{L}- P_{R}) = -120torr.Solving for P

_{3}:P

_{3}=T_{3}(P_{L}- P_{R})/(T_{3}- (BP))Second Step:

Let T

_{L}= T_{3}and T_{R}= Unknown Temp. (T)T

_{L}- T_{R}= T_{3}- T = T_{3}/P_{3}(P_{L}- P_{R})Solving for T:

T = T

_{3}- T_{3}/P_{3}(P_{L}- P_{R})QUESTION:

Because I don't know If T>T

_{3}or T<T_{3}I do not know whether (P_{L}- P_{R}) = +90torr or -90torr.How am I suppose to know?
