• 1. Chapter 20 Thermal Properties and Processes Conceptual Problems 3 • Why is it a bad idea to place a tightly sealed glass bottle that is completely full of water, into your kitchen freezer in order to make ice? Determine the Concept Water expands greatly as it freezes. If a sealed glass bottle full of water is placed in a freezer, as the water freezes there will be no room for the expansion to take place. The bottle will be broken. 9 •• The phase diagram in Figure 20-15 can be interpreted to yield information on how the boiling and melting points of water change with altitude. (a) Explain how this information can be obtained. (b) How might this information affect cooking procedures in the mountains? Determine the Concept (a) With increasing altitude, decreases; from curve OC, the temperature of the liquid-gas interface decreases as the pressure decreases, so the boiling temperature decreases. Likewise, from curve OB, the melting temperature increases with increasing altitude. (b) Boiling at a lower temperature means that the cooking time will have to be increased. 13 •• Two solid cylinders made of materials A and B have the same lengths; their diameters are related by dA = 2dB. When the same temperature difference is maintained between the ends of the cylinders, they conduct heat at the same rate. Their thermal conductivities are therefore related by which of the following equations? (a) kA = kB/4, (b) kA = kB/2, (c) kA = kB, (d) kA = 2kB, (e) kA = 4kB Picture the Problem The rate at which heat is conducted through a cylinder is given by xTkAdtdQI ΔΔ== // (see Equation 20-7) where A is the cross- sectional area of the cylinder. The heat current in cylinder A is the same as the heat current in cylinder B: BA II = Substituting for the heat currents yields: L T Ak L T Ak Δ = Δ BBAA ⇒ A B BA A A kk = 409

The recipe calls for at least 4.0 L of water to be used. You fill the pot with 4.0 L of room temperature water and note that this amount of water filled the pot to the brim. Knowing some physics, you are counting on the volume expansion of the steel pot to keep all of the water in the pot while the water is heated to a boil. Is your assumption correct? Explain. If your assumption is not correct, how much water runs over the sides of the pot due to the thermal expansion of the water? Determine the Concept The volume of water overflowing is the difference between the change in volume of the water and the change in volume of the pot. See Table 20-1 for the coefficient of volume expansion of water and the coefficient of linear expansion of steel.

If we model a human body as a rectangular parallelepiped that is 1.5 m high × 7 cm thick × 50 cm wide, then its surface area is about 1.8 m2 . We’ll also assume that a typical human, while resting, produces energy at the rate of 120 W, that normal internal and external temperatures are 33°C and 37°C, respectively, and that an average skin thickness is 1.0 mm.

The liver is kept cold in a Styrofoam ice chest initially filled with 1.0 kg of ice. It is crucial that the liver temperature is never warmer than 5.0°C. Assuming the trip from the hospital in New York to the hospital in Los Angeles takes 7.0 h, estimate the R-value the Styrofoam walls of the ice chest must have. Picture the Problem The R factor is the thermal resistance per unit area of a slab of material. We can use the thermal current equation to express the thermal resistance of the styrofoam in terms of the maximum amount of heat that can enter the chest in 7.0 h without raising the temperature above 5.0°C. We’ll assume that the surface area of the ice chest is 1.0 m2 and that the ambient temperature is 25°C The R-factor needed for the styrofoam walls of the ice chest is the product of their thermal resistance and area: RAR =f (1) Use the thermal current equation to express R: tottot ΔΔ Δ ΔΔ Q tT t Q T I T R === Substitute for R in equation (1) to obtain: tot f ΔΔ Q tTA R =

The inside diameter of the collar at that temperature is 5.9800 cm. What temperature must the copper collar have so that it will just slip on the shaft, assuming the shaft itself remains at 20ºC? Picture the Problem Because the temperature of the steel shaft does not change, we need consider just the expansion of the copper collar. We can express the required temperature in terms of the initial temperature and the change in temperature that will produce the necessary increase in the diameter D of the copper collar. This increase in the diameter is related to the diameter at 20°C and the increase in temperature through the definition of the coefficient of linear expansion. Express the temperature to which the copper collar must be raised in terms of its initial temperature and the increase in its temperature: TTT Δ+= i Apply the definition of the coefficient of linear expansion to express the change in temperature required for the collar to fit on the shaft: D DD D T αα Δ = ⎟ ⎠ ⎞ ⎜ ⎝ ⎛ Δ =Δ Substitute for ΔT to obtain: D D TT α Δ += i

Picture the Problem Consulting Figure 20-16, we see that: (a) At 70.0 kPa, water boils at approximately C90° . (b) At 0.500 atm (about 51 kPa), water boils at approximately C78° . (c) The pressure at which water boils at 115°C is approximately kPa127 . Conduction 35 • A 20-ft × 30-ft slab of insulation has an R factor of 11. At what rate is heat conducted through the slab if the temperature on one side is a constant 68ºF and the temperature of the other side is a constant 30ºF? Picture the Problem We can use its definition to express the thermal current in the slab in terms of the temperature differential across it and its thermal resistance and use the definition of the R factor to express I as a function of ΔT, the cross- sectional area of the slab, and Rf. Express the thermal current through the slab in terms of the temperature difference across it and its thermal resistance: R T I Δ = Substitute to express R in terms of the insulation’s R factor: ff / R TA AR T I Δ = Δ =
