Do Now

Thursday, January 09, 2014

  • You heat a balloon filled with air. What happens to the pressure inside of the balloon? Why?

3.5 minutes

Do Now Check

Why it matters in LIFE: Explains why certain objects are made out of certain materials

Why it matters in THIS CLASS: This is the last topic we are covering before spring break – you will have a mastery quiz on Monday so let’s hit 85%!

Thermometer lab wrap up
Thermometer Lab Wrap Up

  • What were the two systems you dealt with in this lab?

  • Which system is transferring energy into the water? How do you know?

  • After you turned the hot plate on, what happened to the molecules on the surface of the plate?

  • What type of energy is being transferred from the hot plate to the water?

  • How does this transfer of energy affect the molecules of water?

  • How does this transfer of energy affect the molecules of the liquid inside the thermometer?

  • As particles of water strike the thermometer and transfer their energy into the liquid inside, what happens to the pressure of the thermometer’s liquid?

  • How does this change in pressure allow us to use a thermometer to measure the temperature of a system?

Specific heat
Specific Heat

  • In the last step of your lab, you calculated the total heat that was put into your system in order to raise the temperature of the water

  • In order to be able to do this, you needed to know the SPECIFIC HEAT of the water

Specific heat1
Specific Heat

  • Specific heat is a property of matter that describes the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of a substance by 1 °C

Specific heat2
Specific Heat

  • Specific heat is a constant that relates heat and temperature change per kilogram

  • Different materials have a different specific heat

  • A low specific heat means heat is conducted through an object quickly

Specific heat3
Specific Heat

CONDUCTORS: change heat easily

Low Specific Heat

Require little energy to change temp

INSULATORS: Do NOT change heat easily

High Specific Heat

Require LOTS of energy to change temp

Recall the fire proof balloon specific heat demonstration
Recall the “Fire Proof Balloon”Specific Heat Demonstration

  • We have two balloons – one filled with water and one filled with air

Based on what you learned yesterday about temperature and pressure, what actually happens to the balloon?

Specific heat equation
Specific Heat – Equation

Q = mCDT

Q = mC(Tf – Ti)

Q = heat (joules-J)

m = mass (kg)

C = specific heat (J/kg °C)

DT = change in temp (°C)

Specific heat demo
Specific Heat Demo

  • Why did the balloon filled with water not explode?

  • The water balloon does not explode because the water inside absorbs the heat better than the air does

  • Water has a HIGHER specific heat, which means it has a HIGH heat capacity

    • It takes a lot more energy to change the temperature of the water than it does for the air

Practice problem q mc d t
Practice Problem - Q = mCDT

  • If the specific heat of methanol is 251 J/kg˚C, how many Joules of heat are needed to raise the temp of .250 kg of methanol from 18˚C to 33˚C?

Group practice

  • A .625 sample of water was cooled from 50˚C to 10˚C. How much heat was lost? The specific heat of water is 4,184 J/kg˚C.

Group practice1
Group Practice

  • The heat capacity of lead is 130 J/kg˚C. How much heat (in J) is required to raise the temperature of 15 g of lead from 22˚C to 37˚C?

Group practice2
Group Practice

  •  What is the specific heat of a substance that absorbs 250 J of heat when a sample of 10 kg of the substance increases in temperature from 10˚C to 70˚C?

  • Complete the exit ticket questions INDEPENDENTLY

  • You are not getting enough INDIVIDUAL practice before assessments, which is one of the reasons why the grades are so low

  • You don’t really know it unless you can do it ON YOUR OWN
