Question

A stove top heating element (electric heating) gives off heat at a rate of 2250 W. If you place an iron skillet that's full of water on this heating element then how long would it take to heat both up from 22°C to 83°C? The iron skillet has a mass of 1.5 kg and a specific heat of 450 J/kg • K. The water has a mass of 1.1 kg and a specific heat of 4186 J/kg • K.

Answer #1

An aluminum electric tea kettle with a mass of 500 g is heated
with a 500-W heating coil. How long will it take to heat up 1.0 kg
of water from 18°C to 98°C in the tea kettle? The specific heat of
aluminum is 900 J/kg ? K and that of water is 4186 J/kg ? K.

A 200-L electric water heater uses 2.0 kW. Assuming no heat
loss, how many hours would it take to heat the water in this tank
from 23°C to 75°C? The specific heat of water is 4186 J/kg • K and
its density is 1000 kg/m3.

Part A
A copper pot of mass 2.5 kg contains 5.2 litres of water (i.e.
5.2 kg) at room temperature (200C). An iron block of
mass 9.4 kg is dropped into the water and when the system comes
into thermal equilibrium, a temperature of 380C is
measured. What is the initial temperature of the iron block? Give
your answer in oC to three significant figures.
Part B
Iron has a specific heat that is larger than that of copper. A...

Water has a specific heat of 4.2 k J k g ∘ C . A stockpot filled
with 3.5 kg of water is placed on an electric stovetop with a power
output of 1.5 kW, which raises the water’s temperature from 20°C to
its boiling point (100°C). To the nearest minute, how long after
placing it on the stovetop does it take for the pot of water to
start boiling?

Two products enter an indirect contact heat exchanger that uses
steam for heating. The first product which contains 15% solids
enters at the rate of 3 kg/hr and at 10 °C. The second stream which
contains 20% solids enters at the rate of 4 kg/hr and at 20 °C.
Saturated steam at 140 °C enters the heat exchanger at 0.5 kg/hr
with a quality of 95% and exits at 10% quality at 140 °C. The
resulting mixture enters an indirect...

Question 1 : The temperature of a 0.555 kg block of ice is
lowered to -120°C. Heat (0.5159 MJ) is then transferred to the
block of ice (assume ice is otherwise thermally isolated). What is
the final temperature of the water in °C?
Question 2 : Calculate the time needed (seconds) to that up 285
mL of tomato soup from 4.0°C to 57°C in a 1100. watt microwave
oven. Assume that the density of tomato soup is 1.25 g/mL and...

SETUP
In today’s lab we will measure specific heat using a
calorimeter. A calorimeter consist of a small
metal cup inside a larger metal container, with a
lid. The cups are thermally separated from each other by
means of air and a wooden ring, thus reducing the thermal
conduction to a minimum.
To keep track of how much water etc. we have, the whole
calorimeter will be placed on a digital scale. Make sure to zero
the scale before you place...

Solar heating of a house is much more efficient if there is a
way to store the thermal energy collected during the day to warm
the house at night. Suppose one solar-heated home utilizes a
concrete slab of area 14 m2and 26 cm thick.
Part A
If the density of concrete is 2400 kg/m3, what is the mass of
the slab?
The slab is exposed to sunlight and absorbs energy at a rate of
1.5 ×107J/h for 10 h. If...
