Newton's Law of Cooling : Application to Falling Body Temperature

In a murder investigation, the crime scene investigators arrive 5am to examine the body. They found the body temperature to be 30 degrees celcius in a constant room temperature of 20 degrees celcius. (Normal body temperature is taken to be 37 degrees celcius). At 5.30 am the coroner arrived and measured the body temperature to

Design a cylinder to compress 68 degree Farenheit air

Design a cylinder to compress 68 degree farenheit air from atmospheric pressure to 200 psig without increasing the temperature more than 25 degrees farenheit. Show cylinder dimensions and discuss how far the piston must travel.

Surface tension of water and mercury: Effect of temperature

At 20 degrees celsius the surface tensions for water and mercury are 73dyn/cm and 470dyn/cm respectively. Find these values in SI units. A small capillary tube of 1mm diameter is placed into a container of 20 degree celsius water. will the level of the water in the tube move above or below the level of water? by what distance in

A clock driven by a brass rod pendulum loses time; find the error in one day.

See attached file. A clock driven by a brass rod pendulum loses time when the rod expands as the temperature rises. Find the error in one day. A pendulum clock is driven by a brass rod of length Lo= 1.6 meters, pivoted at one end. The pendulum beats perfect time when the temperature is to= 21 degrees Celsius. If the

An aluminum and an iron bar are of unequal length; temperature at equal length.

An aluminum and an iron bar are of unequal length. An iron bar whose length is 60.00 meters is at 0 degrees Celsius. An aluminum bar whose length is 60.05 meters is at +10 degrees Celsius. Find a temperature at which they are the same length. The coefficient of expansion of iron is 11 E -6 per C degree. The coefficient of ex

Calculating the final temperature of a substance undergoing a heat loss.

Commercial cold-packs consist of solid ammonium nitrate and water. Ammonium nitrate absorbs 330 J of heat per gram dissolved in water. In a coffee-cup calorimeter, 2.00 g of ammonium nitrate are dissolved in 75.0 g of water at 30 degrees Celsius. Assuming that all of the heat is lost from the water, what is the final temperatu
