**Answer**

^{o}C. It depends upon the mass and the nature of the body.

Units: J/

^{o}C or calorie/°C

(b)Change in temperature = (50 - 30) = 20°C

Amount of heat required, Q = m × C × ? T

(c) A burner raises the temperature of 360 g of water from 40

**C to 100**°

**C in 5 minutes. Calculate the rate of heat supplied by the burner.**

**Answer**

**(a)**Principle of Calorimeter:

When a hot body is mixed or kept in contact with a cold body, there is a transfer of heat from hot body to cold body such that.

Total heat gained by colder body = Total heat lost by the hot body,

if there is no loss of heat to the surroundings.

One cabrie is the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 g of water by 1°C.

1 calorie = 4.186 joule

One kilocalorie is the quantity of heat rewired to raise the temperature of 1 kg of water by 1°C.

1 kcal = 4.186 × 10

^{3}joule

**(b)**Let the final temperature of the mixture be Î¸°C.

Heat lost by hot water = Heat gained by cold water

0.4 × C × (80-Î¸) =1× C × (Î¸ - 20)

or, 32 - 0.48 = Î¸ - 20

or, Î¸ = 37.14°C

**(c)**m = 360 g = 0.36 kg

Change in temperature, Î”T = (100 - 40)°C = 60°C = 60 K

= 0.36 × 4200 × 60 = 90720 J

Time taken = 5 min = 300 sec

Rate of heat supplied = Q/t = 90720/300 = 302.4 J/s

**5. A solid of mass 80 g at 80**°

**C is dropped in 400 g water at 10**°

**C. If final temp. is 30**°

**C, find the sp. heat cap. of the solid.**

**Answer**

Heat lost by solid = Heat gained by water

0.08 × C × (80 - 30) = 0.4 × 4200 × (30-10)

or , C = (0.4×4200×20)/(0.08×50) = 8400 J kg

^{o}C is poured into water at 20**C. If the final temperature of the mixture is 25**°

**C, find the mass of water. (Sp. heat cap. of mercury is 140 J/kg K).**

**Answer**

Heat lost by mercury = Heat gained by water

0.2 × 140 × (100 - 25) = m × 4200 × (25 -20)

or, m = (0.2×140×75)/(4200×5) = 0.1 kg = 100 g

**7. A piece of copper of mass 1 kg is dropped into 2 kg of water at 15**

**Answer**

= 40 × 2.1 × 10 = 840 J

Amount of heat required to convert ice at Otto water at 0°C = mL

= 40 × 330 = 13200 J

Amount of heat required to convert water from 0°C to 20°C

= 40 × 4.2 × 20 = 3360 J

(c) Calculate the amount of heat given out while converting 100 g of water at 50

^{o}C into ice at -5^{o}C. (refer Q.9 for data).**Answer**

(ii) Specific latent heat of fusion is the amount of heat required to change unit mass of a solid at its melting point into liquid at the same temperature.

Amount of heat given out while converting water at 0°C to ice at 0°C = mL

= 100 × 330 = 33000J

Amount of heat given out while converting ice from 0°C -50°C

= 100 × 2.1 × 5 = 10500J

Total heat required during the process = 64500J

(a) It is much easier to skate on rough ice than on glass.

(b) Sand mixed with salt is often spread over the icy roads in winter.

(c) A steam burn is usually worse than a hot water burn.

(d) Bottled drinks are cooled more effectively when surrounded by lumps of ice than by cold water at 0

^{o}C.

**Answer**

(a) Ice melts under pressure. So, when the steel blades of the skates pressed on the ice, the ice melts. The water formed makes the skates slide easily over the ice, reducing friction. So, when we are skating on ice, we are skating on a thin film of water, which acts like lubricating oil. Nothing such happens in case of glass.

(b) Sand improves the friction between car tyres and the road, so cars don't skid on icy surfaces. Salt is spread so as to decrease the melting point of ice. Ice on the roads melt, making the roads less slippery.

(c) Steam burn is worse than a hot water burn because 1 g of steam gives out 540 calories of additional heat.

(d) Lumps of ice cool better than cold water because each gram of ice requires additional 80 calories of heat to get converted into water. Hence, cooling capacity of lumps of ice is more than cold water.

**19 . A bucket contains 10 liters of water at 80**°

**C.**

(a) Calculate the rate at which cold water came out of the tap.

(b) State an assumption made in the above calculation.

(a) Calculate the rate at which cold water came out of the tap.

(b) State an assumption made in the above calculation.

**Answer**

(a) Mass of water in the bucket = Density × Volume

= 1000 kg/m^{3} × 0.01 m^{3 } = 10 kg

Let the mass of water that came cut from the tap be m.

Heat lost by hot water Heat gained by cold water

10 × 4200 × (80 -50) = m × 4200 × (50 - 25)

300 = 25m

m =12 kg

12 kg of water came out of tap in 20 sec.

So, the rate at which cold water came out of the tap is 12/20 = 0.6kg/s = 600 g/s

(b) In the above calculation we assumed that there is no loss of heat to the surroundings

**20. 650 J of heat is required to raise the temp. of 0.25 kg of lead from 15**°**C to 35**°**C. Calculate the Specific heat capacity of lead.**

**C, Sp. heat of water = 4.2 J/g**°

**C).**

**Answer**

Mass of calorimeter, m_{1} = 57.5 g

Specific heat capacity of calorimeter, C_{1} = 0.4 J/g°C

Mass of water taken, m_{2} = 60 g

Specific heat capacity of water, C_{2} = 4.2 J/g°C

Mass of iron nails, m_{3} = 55 g

Specific heat capacity of iron - C_{3}

Initial temperature of iron nails, X = 100°C

Initial temperature of calorimeter + water, y = 12°C

Final temperature of the mixture, z = 20'C

Heat lost by iron nails = Heat gained by calorimeter and water

(b) To completely melt the block at its melting point (Melting point of lead is 327°

(a) To bring the lead block upto its melting point,

(b) To completely melt the block at its melting point (Melting point of lead is 327

**C, Sp. heat cap. of lead is 0.13 J/gk and latent heat of fusion of lead is 26 J/g)**

**Answer**

Mass of lead block, m = 250 g

Change in temperature, Î”T = 327°C - 27°C = 300°C = 300 K

C = 0.13 J,/gK

Amount of heat required to raise the temperature to 327°C,

Q = m × C ×Î”T = 250 × 0.13 × 300 = 9750 J

Amount of heat required 133 completely melt the block upto its melting point

Q = m × L = 250 × 26 = 6500 3

**25. 100 g of ice at -10**°

**C is heated. It is converted into steam. Calculate the quantity of heat which it has consumed. (Sp. heat of ice = 2100J/kg**°

**C, sp. heat of water= 4200 J/kgK, sp. heat of water = 42000 J/kgK, sp. latent heat of ice = 2260000 J/kg).**

**Answer**

Amount of heat required 133 convert ice into steam is as given below:

(ice from -10°C 133 0°C) = 0.1 ×2100 ×10 = 2100 J

(ice at 0°C to water at 0°C) = 0.1 ×336000 = 33600 J

(water from 0°C 133 100°C) = 0.1 ×4200 ×100 = 42000 J

(water at 100°C 133 steam at 100°C) = 0.1 ×2260000 = 226000 J

Total amount of heat required = 2100 + 33600 + 42000 + 226000 = 30370 3

**C?**

**Answer**

Mass of molten metal = 150 g = 150 × 10

Q = m × L

75000 = 150 × 10

**28. 40 g of ice at -16**°

**C is dropped into water at 0**°

**C, when 4 g of water freezes into ice. If specific heat capacity of ice is 2100 J/kg**°

**C, what will be the latent heat of fusion of ice?**

**Answer**

Heat gained by ice at - 16°C to convert to 0°C = Heat given out by 4 g of water to at 0°C to freeze into ice at 0°C.

(40 ×2.1× -16) = 4 × L

⇒ 1344 = 4L

⇒ L = 336 J/g

Heat gained by ice at 0°C to convert to water at 0°C = Heat lost by water to change the temperature from 35°C to 0°C

m × 336000 = 0.9 × 4200 × 35

⇒ m × 336000 = 132300

⇒ m = 0.39 kg

**32. State, with reason, which of the two, boiling water or steam both at 100 ^{o}C will produce more severe burns.**
