Water is the most importnt substance on Earth. One reason for its usefulness is that is exists as a liquid over a wide range of temp. In its liquid range, water absorbs or releases heat directly in proportion to its change in temp. Consider the following data that shows temp of a 1,000 g sampe of water at normal atmospheric pressure as a function of heat supplied. A kJ can simply be thought of a unit of heat.
0C 0kJ
10C 42kJ
30C 126kJ
50C 209kJ
80C 335kJ
99C 414kJ
100C 420kJ
Based on this data please supply the following
Provide a graph of the data. Is the graph sufficiently linear to allow prediction of heat supplied versus temperature in the range of 0-100C?
If so, use Microsoft Excel to provide an equation that relates heat, y, supplied to temp, x, in the range of 0-100C.
Are the results consistent with expected equation, heat =(1.00 cal/g oC) *mass in grams* (final temp-initial temp)? please comment.
Use your equation to solve for the following: Heat supplied at 60C, final temp. when 175kJ of heat has been supplied, initial temp if 200kJ of heat is added and the final temp is 50C.
Can the model supply heat/temp. data in other ranges, for example at -5 C or at 150 C? Explain why or why not.
This whole thing makes no sense to me. So if someone could please steer me in the right direction I would appreciate it. The C in this problem stands for Celsius degrees. Thank you

Solution Summary

Whether the heating of water can be modeled with a linear equation is investigated. The solution is detailed and well presented. The response received a rating of "5/5" from the student who originally posted the question.

100 g of ice is melted at 0 degree C, and the resulting water is warmed to room temperature (25 degree C). Calculate delta S (change in entropy) for this whole process and comment on the relative magnitude of the entropy changes for the two steps. Explain the sign of delta S.

The techniques for solving linearequations and linear inequalities are similar, yet different. Explain and give an example of both a linearequation and a linear inequality that demonstrates this difference.
1.) Solve and check the linearequation.

A) {30}
B) {34}
C) {11}
D) {7}
2.) Solve and check th

In 2000, the average cost of tuition and fees at public four- year colleges was $3500, and in 2005 it was $5100. The supporting information is listed below. Note that the known value for 2001 is $3700.

I have the data but I am having a hard time determining the end result.
How much heat energy is required to raise the temp. of 5.0g of H20 from -10C to 110C ? (ice to steam)
Given the following data:
Specific Heat J/gK Molar Heat Capacity J/molK Formula Mass

Your company was very impressed with your results from the recent study. They have asked that you investigate another location for them and present this new promising location at the upcoming sales meeting. Again, it is your job to check out the various areas and the friendliness for business. One of the factors of interest is t

One fundamental difference between a linearequation and a linear inequality lies in the number of possible solutions. A linearequation has a finite (limited) number of solutions while the linear inequality has a range (set) of solutions.
I need an example of an equation and an inequality that expresses the above difference

1.) Use the values of ∆Hof given below to calculate (in kJ) ∆Horxn for the following reaction:
