1. Thermal Energy Ch 6

2. Sec 1 Temperature and Heat • As you will find out in PS1, all matter is made up of tiny particles in constant motion • Because they are moving they have KE • The faster they move, the more KE they have • Temperature is the measure of the average KE of the particles in a sample of matter • As the Temp ↑ the particles move faster and their averageKE ↑ • Temp is measured in kelvins (K), although we use Celsius when working in the lab • One degree of kelivn is the same as one degree of Celsius

3. Temp & ThermalE • Temp is anintrinsic quality: 1 kg of sand has the same Temp as 100 kg of sand—it doesn’t change with the amount • Thermal E (TE) is the total E of the particles in a material—this includes both KE and PE • KE is due to the vibrations/movement of the particles • PE is determined by forces that act between and within the particles • TE is an extrinsic quality: more mass, more TE—it does increase when the mass increases • Different kinds of matter have different TE even when mass and Temp are the same • 5g of sand and 5 g of pudding at the same temp have different TE due to how their atoms are arranged • TE depends on the total E of its particles—the KE of the object itself has no effect on its TE • EX. A moving basketball at 20°C has the same TE as one sitting still

4. Heat • Heat--TE that ALWAYS flows from something with a higher Temp to something with a lower Temp • EX -- touch something HOT and heat is transferred to your hand making it warm • Touch something cold and heat is transferred away from your hand making it feel cold • Measured in joules—transfer of E—just like work • Now explain: How does the cooling occur when you put ice cubes in your drink?

5. Measuring TE • Different materials need different amounts of heat to produce similar changes in their Temp • EX Out at the lake the air Temp is 36°C (HOT!) and you are hot and sweaty and decide to go for a swim so you jump in the lake and the water seems VERY cold even though it has been sunny all day • Water requires a lot more E to change it’s Temp compared to air and other substances • This amount of E is called the materials SPECIFIC HEAT—Cp– amount of E required to raise the Temp of 1 kg of material 1 degree kelvin • Copy the chart on pg 161 onto your Physics Hand-out (add Al= 920J/kgxK) • As you can see, water requires more E to raise its Temp 1 degree K, but iron is much less—metals heat up very quickly

6. Measuring TE cont. • You can’t measure TE directly like you can Temp with a thermometer, but you can use Cp to measure changes in TE • Q = m x ΔT x Cp • Q= change in TE • m= mass • ΔT= change in Temp (Tf - Ti) • Cp= specific heat • ΔT→positive→increase in Temp→heat gained • ΔT→negative→decrease in Temp→heat lost

7. Let’s Practice! • A 3.1 kg ball of Al foil cools from 30°C to 15°C. What is its change in TE? • 1. Q = m x ΔT x Cp • 2. m = 3.1 kg ΔT = 15°- 30° Cp= 920 J/kg x K • 3. Q= 3.1 x (-15°) x 920 J/kgxK • 4. Q= -42780.0J • The Al foil ball loses 42780.0 J

8. Whiteboards! • If a 45 kg brass sculpture gains 180,480 J of TE when its Temp increases from 28°C to 40°C, what is its approximate Cp? • A 55.0 g iron nail has been heated to 90°C, then cooled to 25°C. What is the change in TE? • How much TE does a 420 g of liquid water gain when it is heated from freezing point to boiling point? • 50.0 g of water and 50.0 g of sand each absorb 200 J of solar E. What will the Temp change (ΔT) of each material be?
