Many people confuse heat and temperature. Heat is a type of energy. Temperature is a measure of heat.

Extensive vs. Intensive Properties Heat is referred to as an extensive property. An extensive property depends on the amount of material present. A cup of water at 100o C has contains less heat than a gallon of water at 100o. Temperature, on the other hand, is an intensive property. It does not depend on the amount of substance present. Water boils at 100o C regardless of the amount of water present.

Thermal Energy

Heat is thermal energy. Atoms or molecules that are moving very fast have more thermal energy, i.e., more heat than do atoms or molecules that are moving slowly. In fact, if molecules were completely at rest, they would have no thermal energy, and the temperature would be defined as absolute 0. We can see the effect of thermal energy in phase changes. Consider water. When water molecules are bound together in a crystalline state, we ...

Solution Summary

The solution discusses the properties of temperature, heath and their relationship.

A lab experiment dealing with the properties of a coffee cup calorimeter was completed. One of the procedures involved measuring the temperature of 50mL water placed in a calorimeter for 3 minutes, and then adding NaOH(s) pellets and measuring the temperature for 4 more minutes. I have several temperature measurements, but I am

Consider two Carnot heat engines operating in series. The first engine receives heat from the reservoir at 1800 K, and rejects the waste heat to another reservoir at temperature T.
The second engine receives the energy rejected by the first one, converts some of it into work, and rejects the rest to a reservoir at 300 K. If the

Calculate the latent heat of fusion from the heat balance equation. Compare this value with the value given in the textbook.
1. What would the temperature of the calorimeter mixture be if you added too much ice and not all of it melted?
2. What affect would there be on the calculated value of L if we read the final mixtu

In the year 2050, very efficient heating systems involving heat pumps are commonly used. When people leave theirheated office rooms, heat pumps will pump energy from the vacated rooms to the occupied rooms. Instead of conventional heat pumps where on needs to provide work to pump heat from low temperature to a high temperature
