Textbook Problem

Suppose you have 1 kg each of iron, glass, and water, and all three samples are at 10°C. (a) Rank the samples from lowest to highest temperature after 100 J of energy is added to each by heat. (b) Rank them from least to greatest amount of energy transferred by heat if enough energy is transferred so that each increases in temperature by 20°C.

(a)

To determine
Rank the samples from lowest to highest temperature after heat is added to it.

Explanation

Given Info: 100 J of heat is added to the substance. Temperature is 10°C .

The specific heat of water is 4186J/kg°C .

The specific heat of glass is 837J/kg°C

(b)

To determine
Rank the samples from least to greatest amount of energy transferred by heat if each increases in temperature by a fixed amount.
