VII. Numerical problems.

Question 1.

Find the final temperature of a copper rod whose area of cross section changes from 10 m² to 11 m² due to heating. The copper rod is initially kept at 90 K. (Coefficient of superficial expansion is 0.0021 /K).

Answer:

Change in area ΔA = 11 – 10 = 1 m²

Initial temperature T_{1} = 90 K

Let Final temperature be T_{2}K

A_{0} = 10 m²

Coefficient of superficial expansion is

α_{A} = 0.0021 / k

\(\frac{ΔA}{A_0}\) = α_{A}ΔT

\(\frac{1}{10}\) = 0.0021 ΔT

∴ ΔT = 0.0021 × 10

= 0.021

T_{2} – T_{1} = 0.021

T_{2} – 90 = 0.021

∴ Final temperature T_{2} = 90.021 K

Question 2.

Calculate the coefficient of cubical expansion of a zinc bar. Whose volume is increased 0.25 m³ from 0.3 m³ due to the change in its temperature of 50 K.

Answer:

Initial volume V_{0} = 0.25 m³

Final volume = 0.30 m³

Change in volume ΔV = 0.3 – 0.25 = 0.05 m³

Temperature ΔT = 50K

Coefficient of cubical expansion is

∴ Coefficient of Cubical expansion

α_{v} = 0.004 /K

VIII. Answer in detail.

Question 1.

Derive the ideal gas equation.

Answer:

The ideal gas equation is an equation, which relates all the properties of an ideal gas. An ideal gas obeys Boyle’s law and Charles’s law and Avogadro’s law.

According to Boyle’s law, PV = constant ………. (1)

According to Charles’s law,

\(\frac{V}{T}\) = constant ……… (2)

According to Avogadro’s law,

\(\frac{V}{T}\) = constant …….. (3)

After combining equations (1), (2) and (3), you equation. can get the following

\(\frac{V}{nT}\) = constant ……. (4)

The above relation is called the combined law of gases. If you consider a gas, which contains µ moles of the gas, the number of atoms contained will be equal to µ times the Avogadro number, N_{0}.

i.e., n = µN_{A}

Using equation (5), in equation (4) can be written as

\(\frac{PV}{µN_{A}T}\) = constant

The value of the constant in the above equation is taken to be K_{B}, which is called as Boltzmann constant (1.38 × 10^{-23} JK^{-1}). Hence, we have the following equation:

\(\frac{PV}{µN_{A}T}\) = K_{B}

PV = µN_{A}K_{B}T

µN_{A}K_{B} = R

which is termed as universal gas constant whose value is 8.31 J mol^{-1} K^{-1}.

PV = RT

Ideal gas equation is also called as equation of state because it gives the relation between the state variables and it is used to describe the state of any gas.

Question 2.

Explain the experiment of measuring the real and apparent expansion of a liquid with a neat diagram.

Answer:

To start with, the liquid whose real and apparent expansion is to be determined is poured in a container up to a level. Mark this level as L_{1}. Now, heat the container and the liquid using a burner. Initially, the container receives the thermal energy and it expands. As a result, the volume of the liquid appears to have reduced. Mark this reduced level of liquid as L_{2}. On further heating, the thermal energy supplied to the liquid through the container results in the expansion of the liquid. Hence, the level of liquid rises to L_{3}. Now, the difference between the levels L_{1} and L_{3} is called as apparent expansion, and the difference between the levels L_{2} and L_{3} is called real expansion. The real expansion is always more than that of apparent expansion.

Real expansion = L_{3} – L_{2}

Apparent expansion = L_{3} – L_{1}

IX. HOT Question

Question 1.

If you keep ice at 0°C and water at 0°C in either of your hands, in which hand you will feel more chillness? Why?

VII. Numerical problems.

Question 1.

Transform 100°C into K.

Answer:

T (kelvin) = (273 + t°C) K

= (273 + 100) K

= 373 K

100°C = 373 K

Question 2.

Convert 23 K into °C.

Answer:

T = 23 K

T°C = K – 273

= 23 – 273

= -250°C

23 K = -250°C

Question 3.

If the gap between steel sails on the railway track of 66 m long is 3.63 cm at 10°C. Then at what value of temperature will just touch of steel is 11 × 10^{-6} °C.

Solution:

L_{0} = 66 m = 6600 cm

α = 11 × 10^{-6 }°C.

∆L = L_{t} – L_{0} = 3.63

t_{1} = 10°C

t_{2} = ?

\(\alpha=\frac{\Delta \mathrm{L}}{\mathrm{L}_{\mathrm{o}} \Delta \mathrm{T}}\)

\(\begin{array}{l}{\Delta \mathrm{T}=\frac{\Delta \mathrm{L}}{\mathrm{L}_{0} \times \alpha}} \\ {\Delta \mathrm{T}=\frac{3.63}{6600 \times 11 \times 10^{-6}}}\end{array}\)

∆T = t_{2} – t_{1} = 50

⇒ t_{2} – 10 = 50

⇒ t_{2} = 50 + 10 = 60°C

so final temperature t_{2} = 60°C

Question 4.

At what temperature do the ratings of Celsius and Fahrenheit scales coincide?

Answer:

Let T_{B} = T_{B} – x

∴ 180x = 100x – 3200

80x = -3200

x = –\(\frac{3200}{80}\) = -40°

x = -40°

∴ Hence -40°C and -40° f are identical Temperature.

Question 5.

On heating a glass block of 10^{5} cm³ from 25°C to 40°C its volume increases by 4 cm³. Calculate the coefficient of

(i) Cubical expansion and

(ii) Linear expansion

Answer:

Volume V_{0} = 10^{5} cm³

Change in temperature ΔT = 40 – 25 = 15°C

Change in volume ΔV = 4 cm³

(i) The coefficient of cubical expansion is

α_{V} = 26.67 × 10^{-6}/°C

(ii) Coefficient of linear expansion is

α_{L} = \(\frac{αV}{3}\)

α_{L} = \(\frac{26.67}{3}\) × 10^{-6}

α_{L} = 8.89 × 10^{-6}/°C

Question 6.

A balloon partially filled with the gas volume 30 m^{3} at on surface of the earth where pressure is 76 cm of Hg and temperature is 27°C. What will be the increase in the volume of the gas balloon when it rises to a height where the temperature becomes (-54°C) and pressure become 7.6 cm of Hg.

Solution:

Given, P_{1} = 76 cm Hg, P_{2} = 7.6 cm of Hg

V_{1} = 30 m^{3}, V_{2} = ?

T_{1} = 27 + 273 = 300 K

T_{2} = -54 + 273 = 219 K

By gas equation

\(\frac{\mathrm{P}_{1} \mathrm{V}_{1}}{\mathrm{T}_{1}}=\frac{\mathrm{P}_{2} \mathrm{V}_{2}}{\mathrm{T}_{2}}\)

\(\mathrm{V}_{2}=\frac{\mathrm{P}_{1} \mathrm{V}_{1} \mathrm{T}_{2}}{\mathrm{T}_{1} \mathrm{P}_{2}}=\frac{76 \times 30 \times 219}{300 \times 7.6}\) = 219 m^{3}

So increase in volume of gas = 219 – 30 = 189 m^{3}.

Question 7.

Volume V = 22.4 lit I

= 22.4 × 10^{-3} m³

Temperature T = 273 K

For one mole of a gas

PV = RT

∴ R = \(\frac{PV}{T}\)

= 8.31 J/mol/K

Question 9.

When a gas filled in a closed vessel is heated through 1°C, its pressure increases by 0.4% what is the initial temperature of the gas?

Answer:

Initial pressure P_{1} = P

PT + 0.004PT = PT + P

0.004PT = P

∴ T = \(\frac{1}{0.004}\)

= 250 K

∴ Initial Temperature of the gas = 250 K

Question 10.

A vessel of volume 2000 cm³ contains 0.1 mole of O_{2} and 0.2 mole of CO_{2} . If the temperature of the mixture is 300 K then calculate the pressure exerted by it.

n_{1} = 0.1; n_{2} = 0.2; R = 8.31 J/mol/K;

Temperature T = 300K; Volume V = 2000 × 10^{-6} m³

Pressure P = P_{1} + P_{2}

P = 3.74 × 10^{5} pa

VIII. Answer in detail.

Question 1.

Explain how the loss of heat (or transfer of heat) due to modes of transfer of heat is minimised in a thermos flask.

Answer:

Transfer of heat is thermos is minimised as under:

(i) By conduction: As in conduction heat can transfer by contact of a material medium. In thermos, the air is evacuated between the walls so heat transfer is stopped by conduction mode.

(ii) By convection: As convection mode also requires material (fluid) medium and there is nothing between the walls of thermos so heat does not transfer by connection mode.

(iii) By Radiation: As Ag polish is coated opaque on inner and outer walls of thermos radiation obeys the laws of refraction and reflection so no refraction takes place through opaque wall.

Reflection of outer radiation goes outside of the inner wall goes inside. So the transfer of heat is minimised by polishing.

Question 2.

Explain linear expansion in Solids.

Answer:

When a body is heated or cooled, the length of the body changes due to change in its temperature. Then the expansion is said to be linear or longitudinal expansion.

α_{V} – Coefficient of cubical expansion.

IX. Hot Questions.

Question 1.

At what common temperature a block of wood metal appear equally cold or hot when touched?

Answer:

A body appears hot when touched if heat flows from the body to our hand and vice – versa. If there is no flow of heat across the body and hand, the body can not be identified while it is hot or cold as bodies are in thermal equilibrium with our body. So both block of wood and metal must have the temperature of our body i.e., 37°C.

Question 2.

At room temperature water does not sublimate from ice to steam. Give reason.

Answer:

The critical temperature of the water is much above room temperature.

Question 3.

Good conductors of heat are also good conductors of electricity and vice versa why?

Answer:

It is because of the movement of electrons present in the materials.

Question 4.
