Model the Data for Temperature of Water and the Heat Supplied

Water is the most important substance on Earth. One reason for its usefulness is that it exists as a liquid over a wide range of temperatures. In its liquid range water absorbs or releases heat directly in proportion ot its change in temperature.
Consider the following data that shows temperature of a 1,000 g sample of water at normal atmospheric pressure as a function of heat supplied. A kj can simply be thought of a unit of heat.
Temperature Heat Supplied
0 oC 0 kj
10 oC 42 kj
30 oC 126 kj
50 oC 209 kj
80 oC 335 kj
99 oC 414 kj
100 oC 420 kj
Based on these data, please supply the following:
1. Provide a graph of the data. Is the graph sufficiently to allow prediction of heat supplied versus temperature in the range of 0-100 oC?
2. If so, provide an equation that relates heat, y, supplied to temperature, x, in the range of 0-100 oC.
3. Are the results consistent with the expected equation, heat = (1.00cak/g oC) * mass in grams*
4. Use your equation to solve for the following:
*heat supplied at 60 oC
*final temperature when 175 kj of heat has been supplied
*initial temperature if 200 kj of heat is added and final temperature is 50 oC
5. Can the model supply heat/temperature data in other ranges, for example at -5 oC or at 150 oC? Explain why or why not.

1. Provide a graph of the data Is the graph sufficient linear to allow prediction of heat supplied versus Temperature in the range of 0-100*c?

See the graph in the attached Excel file. Yes, the graph is extremely linear (it looks line a straight line). It will allow prediction for temperature in the range of 0-100 degrees C.

2. If so, use Microsoft Excel to provide an equation that relates heat, y. Supplied to Temperature, x, in the range of o-100*c?

Excel has determined that the ...

Solution Summary

This is a series of questions regarding modeling temperature with a linear equation. The data plot and equation of the line are provided in an attached Excel file. The solutions for the heat supplied, final temperature and initial temperature under different conditions are also provided. It also briefly identifies why the model will not work outside of the specified range.

A perfectly insulated container contains 70 g of waterand has a small heater immersed in water. Thetemperature of thewater is 40 degrees Celsius, andtheheater is connected to a 12V battery via a switch. When theheater is switched on, an electric current of 13A flows through its heating element andthetemperature of the w

Urea, (NH2)2 (CO), is used in the manufacture of resins and glues. When 5.00 g of urea is dissolved in 250.0 mL of water (d=1.00 g/mL) at 30.0°C, 27.6 kJ of heat is absorbed. What is the final temperature of the solution in kJ? The density of water is 4.18 J/g·°C. What is the final temperature in °F? F = °C x 1.8 + 32 (Roun

Answer this question based on the following information:
specific heat capacity of ice = 2,000 J/kg-C
latent heat of fusion of water = 334,000 J/kg
specific heat capacity of water = 4,000 J/kg-C
After a 1 kg block of ice melts, the amount of heat required to raise its temperature to 10C is

Hello, I'm having difficulty figuring out how to work out a rather simple physics problem and would appreciate some guidance. The problem is as follows:
A bottle containing 5.7kg of water at a temperature of 27.3 degrees Celsius is placed in a refrigerator kept at 2.9 degrees Celsius. How much heat is transferred from the wat

2. A 2kg copper pot contains 8 kg of water. Both are initially at 20°C. If heat is added so that thetemperature is now 80°C, determine the amount of heat is put into each material; the copper andthewater.
3. If we have 500ml of water, how many joules of energy will be required to change thetemperature from 25°C to 95°

How much heat is added to 500g of water to raise its temperature from 15 degrees C to 85 degrees C?

d. 3.5 * 10^4j

A well-insulated, shell-and-tube heat exchanger is used to heatwater (Cp = 4.18kJ/kg *degC) in the tubes from 20 degrees C to 70 degrees C at a rate of 4.5kg/s. Heat is supplied by hot oil (Cp = 2.30kJ/kg *degC) that enters the shell side at 170 degrees C at arate of 10kg/s. Disregarding any heat loss from theheat exchanger,
