A student doing an experiment pours 0.150 kg of heated copper shot into a 0.375-kg aluminum calorimeter cup containing 0.200 kg of water. The cup and water are both initially at 25 oC. The mixture (and the cup) comes to thermal equilibrium at 28 oC. What was the initial temperature of the shot?
Answer to relevant QuestionsAt what average rate would heat have to be removed from 1.5 L of (a) Water and (b) Mercury to reduce the liquid’s temperature from 20oC to its freezing point in 3.0 min? Lead pellets of total mass 0.60 kg are heated to and then placed in a well-insulated aluminum cup of mass 0.20 kg that contains 0.50 kg of water initially at 17.3oC. What is the equilibrium temperature of the mixture? An artist wants to melt some lead to make a statue. How much heat must be added to 0.75 kg of lead at 20oC to cause it to melt completely? Ice (initially at 0 oC) is added to 0.75 L of tea at 20oC to make the coldest possible iced tea. If enough ice is added so the final mixture is all liquid, how much liquid is in the pitcher when this condition occurs? Assume that a tile floor and an oak floor each have the same temperature and thickness. (a) Compared with the oak floor, the tile floor will conduct heat away from your bare feet (1) faster, (2) at the same rate, (3) ...
