Solution

Question: 9

A mass of 50 g of a certain metal at 150° C is immersed in 100 g of water at 11° C. The final temperature is 20° C. Calculate the specific heat capacity of the metal. Assume that the specific heat capacity of water is 4.2 J g-1 K-1.

Solution

Question: 10

45 g of water at 50o C in a beaker is cooled when 50 g of copper at 18oC is added to it. The contents are stirred till a final constant temperature is reached. Calculate the final temperature. The specific heat capacity of copper is 0.39 J g-1 K-1 and that of water is 4.2 J g-1 K-1. State the assumptions used.

Solution

Question: 11

200 g of hot water at 80o C is added to 300 g of cold water at 10oC. Neglecting the heat taken by the container, calculate the final temperature of the mixture of water. Specific heat capacity of water = 4200 J kg-1 K-1.

Solution

Question: 12
