If two objects at different temperatures are brought in contact with each other, energy is transferred from the hotter object that is, the object with the greater temperature to the colder lower temperature object, until both objects are at the same temperature. There is no net heat transfer once the temperatures are equal because the amount of heat transferred from one object to the other is the same as the amount of heat returned. One of the major effects of heat transfer is temperature change: Heating increases the temperature while cooling decreases it.

A 2 kg lead is heated from 50oC to oC. The specific heat of lead is J. How much heat is absorbed by the lead. If the copper absorbs 40 Joule of heat, what is the copper's mass! Open navigation menu.
Specific Heat Example Problem
We consider isolated systems, unless otherwise stated, so that no heat is lost to the environment and the principle of conservation of energy can be applied to work out the answer. If the liquids are removed from their recipients and mixed, the final temperature would be around:. Comments: It is important to observe the SI units. The mass is in kg and the heat energy in J. Normally the temperature is converted into K, but because we are taking the difference or the variation , it doesn't matter what units are used if kelvin or celsius.
However, if the difference of temperatures can be plugged in the formula in the scales kelvin or celsius no need to convert celsius into kelvin. If the difference is in degrees farenheit a conversion to celsius or kelvin is needed before using the formula. We know that heat flows from the hotter body to the cooler body.
Hence, the water at the higher temperature will "loose" heat and the water at the lower initial temperature will "gain" heat. The correct way of describing this situation is by saying that heat will be transferred from the hotter to the cooler water.
We also know that, by conservation of energy, the amount of heat lost will be the same that is gained. Both liquids receive the same amount of heat but liquid B achieves a higher temperature. That means that liquid A requires more heat in order to raise its tempearature.
In other words, liquid A has a specific heat that is higher than the specific heat o liquid B. Then, the heat source is removed and the liquids are mixed. What is the final temperature? Because of that, the heat transferred from liquid B that is hotter cannot raise the temperature of A very much. So, these intial considerations enable us to eliminate some answers. The final temperature Tf achieved when the liquids are mixed up must be intermediate between the two.
The hotter one will lose heat that will be gained by the other. This amount of heat must be equal because no heat is lost to the environment and energy must conserve. Based on that we can write another equation:. We call Q 1 the heat received by the water in the coil.
We call Q 2 the heat lost by the mater on the main pipe. The heat lost by the water in the tube must equal the heat gained by the water in the coil, so taht:.
OBS: The specif heat of water was not provided because it would be cancelled anyway. So, let's call the final temperature of the mixture Tf. Initial considerations: Both liquids receive the same amount of heat but liquid B achieves a higher temperature.

- Он повернулся и направился к своему кабинету. Сьюзан открыла рот, но слова застряли у нее в горле. Хейл - Северная Дакота. Она замерла и непроизвольно задержала дыхание, чувствуя на себе взгляд Хейла. Сьюзан повернулась, и Хейл, пропуская ее вперед, сделал широкий взмах рукой, точно приветствуя ее возвращение в Третий узел. - После вас, Сью, - сказал .
У него был такой вид, словно он только что увидел привидение. - Какого черта здесь нужно Чатрукьяну? - недовольно поинтересовался Стратмор. - Сегодня не его дежурство. - Похоже, что-то стряслось, - сказала Сьюзан. - Наверное, увидел включенный монитор.
