HEAT

      HEAT

There are mainly 4 scales of temperature :-
  1. Kelvin(K)
  2. Centigrade(*C)
  3. Fahrenhiet(*F)
  4. Reaumur(*r)

The relation between the following scales of temperature is as follows :

   *C -32 = K-273 = *F-32 = *r
         5           5              9        4


Heat energy is denoted by ‘Q’
Work is directly proportional to energy
So , W=JQ ( Here , J is the convergent factor whose value is equal to 4.18J/cal )
So we can also say that 1 cal = 4.18J


To test your understanding , here’s a small question :-
  1. If the amount of work done by a body is 20.9J , find the amount of heat energy produced
ANSWER :- 
By formula , 
                         W=JQ
 20.9 = 4.18 * Q
Q = 20.9/4.19
Q=5 calories 

See , it’s that simple ! Now let’s move on

THE CONCEPT OF SPECIFIC HEAT 

Specific heat is denoted by ‘C’
Heat energy is directly proportional to the mass of the object -1
Heat energy is directly proportional to the temperature difference – 2
By 1 and 2 , 
Q = m.C.dtheta

Where m – Mass
             C – specific heat ( constant )
        dtheta – delta theta ( this denotes the temperature difference )

Magnitude of C of water – 1 
 Magnitude of C of ice – ½

LATENT HEAT

As you all must be aware , latent heat is the amount of heat energy which is required by a particle to change it’s physical state
Q = m.L
Where Q=Heat energy
              m = mass of the object
              L = Latent heat 

L of ice ---- 80 cal(By default)

The Challenger Question :-
Science is nothing without application , and if you’re not able to apply what you’ve just learnt , then there’s absolutely no point in learning

Here’s a question for you , it isn’t that tough if you use your common sense

QUESTION :-
Container A :- 100g Water at 100*C
Container B :- 100g Ice at -50*C

If the water kept in Container A is poured into Container B , calculate the amount of ice which will melt as a result of this

I can sense that you’re a bit baffled , so here’s the solution , now try to understand

ANSWER :-
Heat energy of water = m.C.dtheta
                                                           = 100 * 1 * 100
                                                           = 10000 calories 
                 Total heat energy of ice = m.c.dtheta + m.L
                                                            = 100 * ½ * 50 + 100*80
                                                            = 2500 cal + 8000 cal

Now what we have to see is , this latent heat ( 8000 cal ) will be responsible for melting the ice
But , this 2500 cal of heat energy will be responsible for bringing the temp. of ice to 0*C ( it’s quite obvious )
Only after the temperature reaches 0*C , the ice will start to melt 
Therefore , heat energy of water which will melt the ice   = total heat energy of water – heat energy required to lower the temperature of ice
               = 10000 – 2500
               = 7500g

So , % of ice melted = 7500/8000 * 100
                                    = 93.8%
                    This translates to 93.8g

FINAL ANSWER :- 93.8g of ice will melt

Animal and Plant Cells

 Cells Cells are the basic functional, biological and structural unit of life. The word cell is a Latin word meaning ‘small room’. Cells are also known as building blocks of life.  The branch of science that deals with the form, structure, and composition of a cell is known as Cytology. All organisms around us are made up of cells. Bacteria, ameba, paramecium, algae, fungi, plants and animals are made up of cells.  Cells together form tissues. And tissue together makes an organ. History Of Cell The cell was discovered by Robert Hooke in 1665. He assembled a simple microscope and observed a very thin slice of cork under his primitive microscope. The cork was obtained from the outer covering of a tree called bark. Robert Hooke observed many little-partitioned boxes or compartments in the cork slice. These boxes appeared like a honey-comb. He termed these boxes as the cell. He also noticed that one box was separated from another by a wall. What Ho

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first: Things You Must Know Some basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u. Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons. Alpha particles have an atomic mass  of 4u. Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets. Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles. He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results i

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass . They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same. But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different. As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons . Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.   Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897. This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen' This experiment helped to discover electron. According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles. He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons
