c. Which is the better coolant, water or methanol? Explain.
For temperature where both methanol and water are liquid, water is the better coolant, because it can
absorb more heat without changing its temperature as much as methanol does.

12. Thermal Energy: Could the thermal energy of a bowl of hot water equal that of a bold of cold water?
Yes. Thermal energy is the measure of the total energy of all the molecules in an object. The temperature (hot
or cold) measures the average amount of energy per molecule. If the cold water bowl has more mass than the
hot water bowl, then the two thermal energies could be equal.
13. Heat Flow: On a dinner plate, a baked potato always stays hot longer than any other food. Why?
A potato has a large specific heat capacity and conducts heat poorly, so it loses its heat energy slowly.
It is not because of the mass of the potato.

36. Explain the differences among the mechanical energy of a ball, its thermal energy, and its temperature.
The mechanical energy is the sum of the potential and kinetic energies of the ball considered as one mass. The
thermal energy is the sum of the potential and kinetic energies of the individual particles that make up the
mass of the ball. The temperature is a measure of the average energy of the individual particles that make up
the mass of the ball.
37. Can temperature be assigned to a vacuum? Explain.
No, since there are no particles in a vacuum, there is no average energy of particles in a vacuum.
38. Do all molecules or atoms in a liquid have the same speed?
No. There is a distribution of velocities of the atoms or molecules. (The center of this distribution corresponds
to the temperature of the liquid.)
39. Is your body a good judge of temperature? On a cold winter day, a metal doorknob feels much colder to
your hand than a wooden door does. Explain why this is true.
Your skin measures heat flow to or from itself, not temperature. The metal doorknob absorbs heat from your
skin faster than the wooden door, so it feels colder. However, the temperatures of the doorknob and door are
likely the same (or at least very close).
40. When heat flows from a warmer object in contact with a colder object, do the two have the same
temperature changes?
Generally, no. The two objects will change temperatures depending on their masses and specific heats.

41. Can you add thermal energy to an object without increasing its temperature? Explain.
Yes. When you melt a solid or boil a liquid, you add thermal energy without changing the temperature.
42. When wax freezes, does it absorb or release energy?
When wax (or anything else) freezes, it releases energy.
43. Explain why water in a canteen that is surrounded by dry air stays cooler if it has a canvas cover that is
kept wet.
When the water in the cover evaporates into the dry air, it must absorb an amount of energy proportional to
its heat of fusion. In doing so, it cools off the canteen. This works only if the air is dry; if the air is humid, then
the water will not evaporate.
44. What process occurs at the coils of a running air conditioner inside a house, vaporization or condensation?
Explain.
Inside the house, the coolant is evaporating in the coils to absorb energy from the rooms.

piece of metal. Each stamped piece is then dipped in a 32.0 kg vat of water for cooling. By how many degrees
does the vat heat up each time a piece of stamped metal is dipped into it?
If we assume the 2100 J of work from the machine is absorbed as thermal energy in the stamped piece, then
the vat must absorb 2100 J in the form of heat from each piece. No work is done on the water, only heat is
transferred. The change in temperature of the water is given by

The change in thermal energy of an object,

As the refrigerator attempts to remove energy from the air inside the refrigerator, it releases heat out
the back of the refrigerator. Since the refrigerator is not 100% efficient, it releases more heat out the
back than it removes from the air inside. The net result is heating up the kitchen, not cooling it.
Overall, there is an increase in entropy, so the second law holds. The system in which the paint is
acting includes the water or other solvent that made the paint a liquid. When the paint dries, the
solvent absorbs energy and changes state from a liquid to a gas. The entropy of the gas is greater than
the entropy of the liquid.

A heat engine uses the natural flow of heat to produce work. If there is no heat sink, then there would
be no flow of heat, and the engine could do no work.
The more efficient a device is, the more work it can do for the amount of energy it uses. Less energy is
wasted because that energy does not get converted and released as thermal energy.
Efficient products waste less energy and so can use less energy, making them cheaper to operate.
