Textbook Problem

A person shakes a sealed, insulated bottle containing coffee for a few minutes. What is the change in the temperature of the coffee? (a) a large decrease (b) a slight decrease (c) no change (d) a slight increase (e) a large increase

To determine

The change in temperature of the coffee, when an insulated bottle containing coffee was shook for a few minutes.

Explanation

Shaking the sealed, insulated bottle containing coffee increases the internal energy of the coffee molecules. Temperature is related to the motion of molecules in a medium.

Conclusion:

Since the internal energy of the coffee is directly proportional to the temperature, the temperature of the insulated bottle increases slightly. Thus, option (d) is correct.

For, the temperature to decrease, the internal energy of the coffee must decrease due to shaking and which is contradictory...
