A 58.0 kg ice-skater moving at 6.25 m/s glides to a stop. Assuming the ice is at 0°C and that 53.5 percent of the heat generated by friction is absorbed by the ice, how much ice melts?

Solution Preview

Kinetic energy of the skater= 1/2 M V ...

Solution Summary

The solution calculates the amount of ice melted using the latent heat of fusion of ice.

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

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.

A beaker of water sits in the sun until it reaches an equilibrium temperature of 30 degrees C. The beaker is made of 100g of aluminum and contains 180g of water. In an attempt to cool this system, 100g of ice at 0 degrees C is added to the water. A) determine the final temperature. If Tf = 0 degree C, determine how much ice rema

How long would it take sunlight to melt 2 meters (thick) of snow on a mountainside ? Assume that the snow is 50% snow and 50% air, and that the only the sun does any melting (not a good assumption, I knw, but lets do only one thing at a time here). Let the angle of the sun be such that 1000 watts per square meter is incident, bu

* Unknown compound that shows an observed melting range of 90-94 Ë?C. Which is to be, X (listed mp 97-98 Ë?C) or candidate Y (listed mp 86-87 Ë?C). Why might your sample not have the same melting range as either of the known compounds, given that it must be one of them?
