Dew point, Air temperature and Precipitation

In areas of precipitation, the dew point and air temperature are higher than in the surrounding areas not receiving rain. In areas of precipitation the dew point and air temperature are also the same or close to being the same. What can you say about the relationship between air temperature and the air's dew point for stations

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

What kind of relationship exists between emitted light and time

Certain crystals fluoresce when exposed to a short burst of ultraviolet light. The amount of light emitted by the crystals is both time and temperature dependent. The emitted light is maximum at the time of excitation, the output then decaying with time. Such materials can be used to measure temperature. Given are some relative

Calculating Temperature Change in Water After a Reaction

10.1 g CaO is dropped into a styrofoam coffee cup containing 157 g H2O at 18.0 degrees C. If the following reaction occurs, then what temp will the water reach, assuming the cup is a perfect insulator and the cup absorbs only a negligible amount of heat? CaO(s) + H2O(l) yields Ca(OH)2(s) delta H rxn= -64.8 kJ/mol
