To learn more, read your instructor's Grading Policy Specific Heat, Latent Heat, and Temperature versus Time Graphs Description: An introduction to specific heat and latent heat, with an emphasis on interpreting temperature versus time graphs under constant heating/cooling conditions. Learning Goal: To understand specific heat and latent heat and how they are related to temperature versus time graphs. Energy can be added to a system either by doing work on it or by adding heat to it. Energy transfer by work requires a force to act through some distance. Energy transfer in the form of heat occurs between objects that are at different temperatures, with energy spontaneously traveling from the higher-temperature object to the lower-temperature one. When energy is added to an isolated system in the form of heat, either the temperature of the system will increase or the system will undergo a phase change at a fixed temperature. The specific heat of a sample characterizes the rate at which it changes temperature per unit mass when it receives energy in the form of heat. The relationship between the energy input in the form of heat and the resulting temperature change is, where is the mass of the sample and is its specific heat, which depends on its phase. For this problem, assume that specific heat values are a constant for all temperatures within a given phase, which is a good approximation. The latent heat of a sample characterizes how much energy is required per unit mass to force the system to undergo a phase change at a fixed temperature. The amount of energy input in the form of heat required to completely change the phase of a sample with mass is. Phase changes between solid and liquid phases are characterized by a latent heat of fusion and gas phases are characterized by a latent heat of vaporization.. Phase changes between liquid In general, every phase (solid, liquid, or gas) has its own specific heat value and every phase change has its own latent heat value. This graph in the figure shows how the temperature of an initially solid sample changes as time goes by when it is placed above a flame that delivers a constant heating power (that is, a fixed amount of energy input in the form of heat each second). The process occurs in five distinct steps: 1. Increase the temperature of the solid until it reaches its melting temperature. 2. Melt the solid to form a liquid, maintaining a constant temperature. 3. Increase the temperature of the liquid until it reaches its boiling temperature. 4. Boil away all the liquid to form a gas, maintaining a constant temperature. 5. Increase the temperature of the gas (this assumes that the gaseous sample is confined). Use the graph to rank the sizes of the following: A. B. C. specific heat of the solid, specific heat of the liquid, specific heat of the gas, Keep in mind that energy is being delivered to the system in the form of heat at a constant rate by the flame. Hint A.1 Relate rate of temperature change to specific heat Recall that specific heat and temperature change are related by the equation. The larger the specific heat, the more energy in the form of heat is required to achieve a specific temperature change (e.g., an increase of

2 2/7 2009/11/14 上 午 11:10 ). In this problem, heat is delivered at a constant rate, so more heat requires more time. Thus, the slope of the temperature versus time graph for a phase with a large specific heat will be higher than the slope for a phase with a small specific heat. equal to the slope for a phase with a small specific heat. less than the slope for a phase with a small specific heat. Now compare the slopes of segments A, C, and E on the graph to answer the original question. Rank from largest to smallest specific heat. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them. View The smaller the specific heat, the more quickly the temperature can change, so the steeper the slope on a temperature versus time graph. Part B Use the graph to rank the sizes of the following. A. B. latent heat of fusion, latent heat of vaporization, Keep in mind that energy is being delivered to the system in the form of heat at a constant rate by the flame. Hint B.1 Relate duration of phase change to latent heat Recall that latent heat and the energy transferred by heat are related by the equation. The larger the latent heat, the more energy in the form of heat is required to change the phase. Thus, the amount of time it takes to accomplish a phase change with a large latent heat will be longer than the time required to complete a phase change with a small latent heat. equal to the time required to complete a phase change with a small latent heat. shorter than the time required to complete a phase change with a small latent heat. Now compare the durations of segments B and D on the graph to answer the original question. Rank from largest to smallest latent heat. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them. View You can tell that the latent heats match because the horizontal segments are the same length. However, latent heats can be very different from one another. With water, for example, 2256 is nearly seven times the magnitude of Refer to the temperature versus time graph when answering the questions in Parts C through F. A system consists of 250 of water. The system, originally at 21.0, is placed in a freezer, where energy is removed from it in the form of heat at a constant rate. The figure shows how the temperature of the system takes to drop to, after which the water freezes. Once the freezing is complete, the

4 4/7 2009/11/14 上 午 11:10 Express your answer numerically in seconds. Express your answer numerically in seconds. Part F If the cooling power remains constant, what will be the temperature of the system exactly 1 hour? This temperature is off scale on the figure. after it has been in the freezer for Hint F.1 How to approach the problem After you cool the water to and then freeze it, how much time remains before the one-hour mark? Use that time, coupled with the constant cooling power, to determine how much more energy will be removed. Then calculate the final temperature of the system. Hint F.2 Find the time remaining to chill the ice How much time remains to lower the temperature of the ice before the one-hour mark? Express your answer numerically in seconds. Express your answer numerically in degrees Celsius. In actuality, the idea that the refrigerator removes energy from the sample at a constant rate is a bit unrealistic. Warm objects lose energy more quickly than objects near the temperature of the freezer. This is described by Newton's law of cooling, discovered by Sir Isaac Newton.
