1102-H: Heat Formula 3

BACK to Ladder Heat Transfer and Temperature: Mathematical

The goal of this pod is to solve problems in which you are looking for final temperature or initial temperature of an object. These are a little bit more algebraically difficult than solving for other variables. To these problems, it can be helpful to use a different version of the formula.

$$ Q = m c \Delta T \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; Q = m c \left( T_f - T_i \right) $$

  1. I have 0.800 kg of water with a temperature of 30.0°C. I add 10,000. Joules of energy to the water. What will be the final temperature?
  2. A gold ring has a temperature of 22°C and a mass of 200 grams. If a metal worker adds 5624 Joules of heat energy to the ring, what is its final temperature?
  3. A massive concrete building has a temperature of 5°C and a mass of 4000 kilograms at night. The sun rises and adds \( 6.69 \cdot 10^7 \) Joules of heat energy to the building. What is its final temperature?
  4. Somebody heats a bowl of 3 kg of water to its boiling point (100°C) by adding 941400 Joules of heat energy. What was its initial temperature?
  5. By rubbing wooden sticks together, somebody adds 7560 Joules of heat energy. The sticks have a mass of 0.200 kg, and they reach a final temperature of 35°C. What was their initial temperature?
  6. Someone has been cooking with a hot pot, but after taking it off the heat it returns to room temperature. The pot is mostly steel and has a mass of 0.85 kg. It gives off 47141 Joules of heat energy when it reduces its temperature of 22°C. What was its initial temperature?
