Answer #1

Specific Heat Capacity of the material is a measure of it's ability to store heat. Greater the specific heat capacity, greater will be its ability to store heat.

A) out of given options, lowest specific heat capacity is 0.1 J/ Kg°C ( 2nd option). This will store lowest heat.

B) out of the given options, highest specific heat capacity is 10 kJ/g°C (3rd option). This stores maximum heat.

c) Kinetic energy of the molecules is directly proportional to temperature.

K.E = (3/2) Kb T where Kb - Boltzmann constant & T- Temperature.

So last option is right.

Which statement is wrong? 1. Temperature measures the average kinetic energy of random motion, but not other kinds of energy. 2. When the same amount of heat produces different changes in temperature in two substances of the same mass, we say that they have different specific heat capacities. 3. Each substance has its own characteristic specific heat capacity. 4. Different substances have different thermal properties due to differences in the way energy is stored internally in the substances. 5. Adding...
