  1. 1. 11/17/13 Thermal Physics
  2. 2. 11/17/13 Heat flows from hot to cold Net energy flow stops when their temperatures are the same i.e. They are in thermal equilibrium
  3. 3. 11/17/13 The Kelvin temperature scale • Tc = Tk - 273 • Tk = Tc +273 • How many times hotter is 100ºC than 33ºC? • How many times hotter is 10ºC than 0ºC? • What is your temperature in 0C and 0K
  4. 4. Kinetic theory 11/17/13 • Why is it that you can put out a candle flame with moist fingers without hurting yourself although it is at 750 oC but it is very painful to put your fingers into a cup of hot water at 80 o C?
  5. 5. Heat energy and molecular movement • What happens to the molecules when their temperature increases? • What is the difference between internal “heat” energy and temperature? • What types of energy do the molecules have? 11/17/13

  11. 11. Gas Pressure 11/17/13 Gas pressure is basically due to gas molecules hitting the sides of the container they are in: Hyperlink
  12. 12. Kinetic Theory of Gases 11/17/13 Let’s make some assumptions: 1) Brownian motion suggests that a pure gas consists of identical molecules in constant random motion. 2) Molecules never stop so collisions between molecules are, on average, elastic (no kinetic energy is lost). 3) Because gases can be compressed easily the volume of the individual molecules is negligible compared to the volume they occupy when moving around. 4) Therefore the molecules are further apart, so we assume that there are no forces on the molecules except for when they collide.
  13. 13. Internal Energy 11/17/13 Basically, the internal energy of a substance is the sum of the molecular kinetic and potential energies. Consider a particle: This particle can store energy by moving in a number of ways: 1) Moving in three dimensions 2) Vibrating 3) Rotating These are called “degrees of freedom”, and each one can store energy.

  18. 18. Specific Heat Capacity 11/17/13 This can be thought of as “the capacity of an object to store heat”. Consider some water: If we heat this beaker up it’s fairly clear that the amount of energy it gains depends on how much water there is and how hot it gets… Energy α mass x temperature rise Energy = mass x s.h.c x temp E = mcΔT
  19. 19. Specific Heat Capacity 11/17/13 How can we do this experimentally? E = VIt and E = mcΔT A 12V V Possible errors with this experiment: 1) Temperature throughout the liquid should be the same Solution: 2) Heat is lost to the surroundings Solution(s):

  24. 24. Thermal Physics Questions 11/17/13 • Specific heat capacities: • copper400Jkg-1K-1 iron460Jkg-1K1  water4200Jkg-1K-1 ice2100Jkg-1K-1  •  Specific latent heat of fusion of ice = 3·3×105Jkg-1 • Molar heat capacities of a diatomic ideal gas: Cv = 12·5J(molK)-1 and Cp = 20·8J(molK)-1
  25. 25. 11/17/13 • Question 1 • A piece of metal of mass 0·2kg is heated to a temperature of 200°C. It is then put into 0·2kg of water at 20°C in a container of negligible heat capacity. The "final" temperature, after stirring, is 40°C. Calculate the specific heat capacity of the metal. • Question 2 • A piece of metal of mass 100g, has a temperature of 100°C. It is put into 100g of water at 20°C in a container of negligible heat capacity. After stirring, the maximum temperature of the "mixture" (metal and water) is 27·5°C. Calculate the specific heat capacity of the metal. • Question 3 • The specific heat capacity of water is very high. What effect does this have on the weather conditions experienced by people living on islands? • Question 4 • How long will it take to change the temperature of 200kg of water from 15°C to 40°C, using a heater of power 3kW. Assume that all the thermal energy remains in the water.
  26. 26. 3 Phases of matter 11/17/13 Solids –fixed positions, many strong bonds (potential energy) Liquids – Changing positions, many temporary bonds Gases – Free moving, no bonds
  27. 27. Hyperlink Changing state 11/17/13
  28. 28. Change of state (Melting and boiling) Heat energy is going to potential energy only, therefore there is no rise in temperature. Heat energy is going to internal EK 11/17/13
  29. 29. Temp/OC 150 100 11/17/13 Heating ice This flat line shows where energy is being used to break the temporary bonds for boiling. The amount of energy needed to turn 1kg of a liquid into a gas is called the Specific Latent Heat of Vaporisation L. 50 0 -50 Time/s This flat line shows where energy is being used to break bonds – this has to be done during melting. The amount of energy needed to turn 1kg of a solid into a liquid is called the Specific Latent Heat of Fusion L.

  31. 31. Melting Q’s 11/17/13 • Question 1 • A piece of ice at -20°C is put into a copper calorimeter of mass 0·2kg which contains 0·15kg of water at 20°C. The water is stirred until all the ice has melted. At this time the temperature of the water (and calorimeter) is 15°C. Calculate the mass of the piece of ice. (8 grammes). • Question 2 • A refrigerator is capable of removing 50J of heat per second from a container of water. How long will it take to change 2kg of water at 10°C into ice at -5°C? Assume that the rate of removal of heat remains constant and that the container has negligible heat capacity. Are these assumptions likely to be valid in practice?
  32. 32. Latent Heat of Fusion 11/17/13 From the previous slide we can say that the energy needed to melt water is given by… Energy = mass x specific latent heat of fusion To work out L experimentally you could… VIt = mL A 12V V

  34. 34. Evaporation Average speed 11/17/13 decreases •High energy molecules escape when they reach the surface. •The average kinetic energy of the remaining particles drops •The temperature of the remaining liquid is lowered
  35. 35. Hyperlink Boiling 11/17/13
  36. 36. Evaporation and Boiling 11/17/13 • Boiling occurs at a fixed temperature • Evaporation occurs at any temperature • Boiling happens throughout the body of the liquid • Evaporation only happens at the surface of the liquid.
  37. 37. 11/17/13 Pressure Pressure depends on two things: 1) How much force is applied, and 2) How big (or small) the area on which this force is applied is. Pressure can be calculated using the equation: F Pressure (in N/m2) = Force (in N) Area (in m2) OR in cm2 and N/cm2 P A
  38. 38. Some pressure questions Pressure = force P=F area 11/17/13 A 1) Calculate the pressure exerted by a 1000N elephant when standing on the floor if his feet have a total area of 1m 2. 2) A brick is rested on a surface. The brick has an area of 20cm2. Its weight is 10N. Calculate the pressure. 3) A woman exerts a pressure of 100N/cm2 when standing on the floor. If her weight is 500N what is the area of the floor she is standing on? 4) (Hard!) The pressure due to the atmosphere is 100,000N/m2. If 10 Newtons are equivalent to 1kg how much mass is pressing down on every square centimetre of our body?
  39. 39. Kinetic theory 11/17/13 •Particles collide with the walls of the container •They change their momentum •They exert a force on the wall •This creates “pressure”. The collisions of the molecules with the container (not with each other) create the pressure.

  41. 41. 11/17/13 Assumptions of the kinetic theory 1. Molecules behave as if they were hard, smooth, elastic spheres. (i.e. the collisions are perfectly elastic) 2. Molecules are in continuous rapid, random motion. 3. The average kinetic energy of the molecules is proportional to the absolute temperature of the gas. 4. The molecules do not exert any appreciable attraction on each other. 5. The volume of the molecules is infinitesimal when compared with the volume of the gas. 6. The time spent in collisions is small compared with the time between collisions.
  42. 42. 11/17/13 Macroscopic behaviour of a gas • Why does the volume of a gas expand when heated? • Why does the pressure of a gas increase when heated? • How does the temperature relate to the molecular behaviour?
