Textbook Problem

Into a 0.500-kg aluminum container at 20.0°C is placed 6.00 kg of ethyl alcohol at 30.0°C and 1.00 kg ice at −10.0°C. Assume the system is insulated from its environment. (a) Identify all five thermal energy transfers that occur as the system goes to a final equilibrium temperature T. Use the form “substance at X°C to substance at Y°C.” (b) Construct a table similar to the table in Example 11.5. (c) Sum all terms in the right-most column of the table and set the sum equal to zero. (d) Substitute information from the table into the equation found in part (c) and solve for the final equilibrium temperature, T.


To determine
Five thermal energy transfers that occur.


Aluminum container at 20°C contains ethyl alcohol at 30°C and ice at 0°C . Heat transfer from hot to cold body occurs. The mixture and the container attains an equilibrium temperature.

Ice at 10°C increases in temperature and becomes Ice at 0°C , then phase change o


To determine
Construct a table similar to table 11.5


To determine
Conservation of energy equation.


To determine
The final equilibrium temperature.
