Question

Consider two equal volumes of liquid, one held in a tall narrow container and the other in a short wide container.

Does the linear height of the liquid in each case change by the same absolute amount for a given temperature change?

Does it change by the same percentage amount? Explain.

Answer #1

Solution:

Given equal volumes of the liquid, the heights change proportionately.

If a thin tall container is taken , its area of cross section is Less than a wide & short container.

The level of the liquid will change in accordance with its area of cross sectiom.

Level of liquid = Volume / area of cross section .

SO if it changes by a small amount x in a narrow tall container , the short wide container will also have a lesser change in its level..

Percentage change in the level will also be in accordance with the area of cross section.

change in volume / area of cross section.

More area => lesser level.

Consider two thin rods, one of aluminum and another of unknown
material, x of equal length, 100 cm each, both at 12 C. The
coefficient of linear expansion for Aluminum is
2.4×10–5/oC. When both having identical
initial temperature 12 C are raised to the same final temperature
92 C, the aluminum rod changed in length by an amount that equals
double the change happening to the other unknown rod, x. Find the
coefficient of linear expansion for the unknown rod.

Consider two 35-gram ice cubes, each initially at -5°C. One is
dropped into a at container filled with 0.1 kg of liquid nitrogen
(initially the boiling point of nitrogen); the other cube is
dropped into a container filled with 1 kg of (liquid) water,
initially at 5°C. Assume that no heat is lost through either
container (or into the atmosphere).
1.Determine the final (equilibrium) temperature of the
icewater mixture.
2. Determine the phase (ie., liquid or solid) corresponding to
the...

Two portions of the same liquid are mixed together. One has a
mass of 100.0 g and a temperature of 43 °C. The other has a mass of
25 g and a temperature of 21 °C. Ignoring the container in which
they are mixed and any heat lost from that container, determine the
final temperature Tf at equilibrium.

⦁ Two identical containers A and B, filled with
equal masses of 2 different liquids, initially at 20°C, are heated
on a hot plate and both receive the same amount of heat. As a
result, the temperature of liquid A is raised to 40°C and that of
liquid B is raised to 80°C. If the liquids are now poured into a
third, larger container and mixed, would their final temperature be
lower, higher, or exactly equal to 60˚C? Explain your...

Imagine that you have two cups, one containing 1540 g of water
and the other one containing some amount of an unknown liquid. The
specific heat of water is 4.19 J/g·°C, and the specific heat of the
unknown liquid is 7.03 J/g·°C. You use two identical immersion
heaters to heat the water and the unknown liquid simultaneously.
Assume that all the heat from the heater is used to heat the
content of the cups.
(a) You started heating the water...

Two identical sealed containers (1 and 2) are connected to one
another by a narrow tube with a valve. Initially, the valve is
closed, container 1 is filled with a fluid, and container 2 is
empty. Both containers have a ruler taped to their sides in order
to measure the height of any fluid they contain.
A) . When the valve is opened for a time interval Δt, the level
of the fluid in container 1 drops by 3 cm....

TWO BEAKERS, ONE CONTAINING 0.010 M NACL(AQ) AND THE OTHER
CONTAINING 0.010 M ALCL3(AQ) ARE PLACED INSIDE A BELL JAR AND
SEALED. THE BEAKERS ARE LEFT UNTIL THE WATER VAPOR HAS COME TO
EQUILIBRIUM WITH ANY LIQUID IN THE CONTAINER. THE LEVELS OF THE
LIQUID IN EACH BEAKER AT THE BEGINNING OF THE EXPERIMENT ARE THE
SAME, AS PICTURED BELOW. DRAW THE LEVELS OF THE LIQUID IN EACH
BEAKER AFTER EQUILIBRIUM HAS BEEN REACHED. EXPLAIN YOUR
REASONING.
