i tried to help my sister with this assignment, professor does not help and please help my sister pass this please all i can truly offer is 10 dollars please i cannot offer anymore. what i have left is to feed her and i have a job at a fast food but everything goes to her school. i would truly appreciate it if anyone can answer these questions correctly.
Homework #4 Name _______________________
(Total 20 pts) For this homework, the concept of ?Density? and ?Heat? will be explored.
Density is the ?compactness? of a material, or stated in a formula it is how much it weighs (mass) divided by
how much space it takes up (volume). For pure water the density is 1 gram for every milliliter of water
(1 g/ml). From the table below, determine what elements are described in Questions 1-3.
Name of element
Boron Density (g/ml)
2.34 1. Item weighs 25 grams and takes up 3.5 ml of volume _______________ (1 pt)
2. Item weighs 117 grams and takes up 50 ml of volume _______________ (1 pt)
3. This item floats on water ___________________ (1 pt)
4. If all these items were mixed together, which one is expected to sink to the bottom? ________ (1 pt)
?Heat? is the next topic. It is a somewhat difficult concept to grasp but it is very important. I encourage you
first to read Chapter 5. Then carefully study the next figure. This figure is a graph that plots temperature over
thermal energy. To answer questions 9-12 you need to read, use this graph. No formula is needed! There are two general types of heat; ?Sensible? and ?Latent.? Sensible Heat describes a process where the
temperature changes as heat is added or removed. Latent Heat Thermal Energy is absorbed but the
temperature does not change, for example between points D and C shown in the graph. The definition of ?Heat Capacity? plays a significant role in sensible heat; it is the ability of a substance to
store heat. For pure water, the heat capacity is 1 cal / g °C (1 calorie per every gram of water per every
degree change in Celsius), or in words; if I have 1 gram of water and I want to raise it 1°C, I must add 1
Calorie of heat. Determine the following:
5. If I want to raise 2 grams of water 1°C, how much heat should I add? _____________ (1 pt)
6. If I want to raise 1 gram of water 2°C, how much heat should I add? _____________ (1 pt)
The higher the ?heat capacity? of an object, the more heat it takes to increase its temperature. Determine the
7. Wood has 4 times the heat capacity as steel. If I add the same amount of heat to the same amount of
steel and wood, I find the temperature of the steel increases to 40°C. What is the temperature of the
wood? ___________ (1 pt)
8. Water has 5 times the heat capacity as soil. If I add the same amount of heat to the same amount of
water and soil, I find the temperature of the soil increases to 50°C. What is the temperature of the
water? _________ (1 pt). The next concept to be considered when dealing with heat, is ?Latent Heat?. The word latent refers to the
temperature of the system remaining the same even as heat is being added or subtracted from it. This will
occur when the system is changing states. Consider a piece of ice.
9. The latent heat of fusion (or the amount of heat required to turn the ice into water) is
80 Calories/gram. How much heat must be added to melt 2 grams of ice at 0°C and what is the final
temperature after this heat is added? _______________ _______________ (3 pts)
10. The latent heat of vaporization (or the amount of heat required to turn the water into a vapor) is
540 Calories/gram. How much heat must be added to turn 3 grams of water at 100°C into a vapor and
what will be the final temperature after this much heat is added? _____________ _____________
Putting sensible and latent heat together, it is now possible to figure out the temperature of water going
through various stages of heat input/withdrawal. (Heat capacity of water is 1 cal / g °C)
11. 60 calories is added to 1 gram of water at an initial temperature of 80°C. What is the water?s final
temperature and state (solid, liquid or vapor)?
Temperature = __________________ (2 pts)
State = ________________________ (1 pt)
12. 120 calories is removed from 1 gram of water at an initial temperature of 40°C. What is the water?s
final temperature and state (solid, liquid or vapor)?
Temperature = __________________ (2 pts) State = ________________________ (1 pt)
