This principle is based on law of conservation of energy.

Question 22

A mass m_{1} of a substance of specific heat capacity c_{1} at temperature T_{1} is mixed with a mass m_{2} of other substance of specific heat capacity c_{2} at a lower temperature T_{2}. Deduce the expression for the temperature of mixture. State assumption made, if any.

Answer 22

A mass m_{1} of a substance A of specific heat capacity c_{1} at temperature T_{1} is mixed with a mass m_{2} of other substance B of specific heat capacity c_{2} at a lower temperature T_{2} and final temperature of the mixture becomes T.

Fall in temperature of substance A = T_{1 }– T

Rise in temperature of substance B = T – T_{2}

Heat energy lost by A = m_{1} c_{1} fall in temperature

= m_{1}c_{1}(T_{1} – T)

Heat energy gained by B= m_{2 } c_{2} rise in temperature

= m_{2}c_{2}(T – T_{2})

If no energy lost in the surrounding, then by the principle of mixtures,

Heat energy lost by A = Heat energy gained by B

m_{1}c_{1}(T_{1} – T)= m_{2}c_{2}(T – T_{2})

After rearranging this equation, we get

Here we have assumed that there is no loss of heat energy.

Question 23

Why do the farmers fill their fields with water on a cold winter night?

Answer 23

In the absence of water, if on a cold winter night the atmospheric temperature falls below 0^{o}C, the water in the fine capillaries of plant will freeze, so the veins will burst due to the increase in the volume of water on freezing. As a result, plants will die and the crop will be destroyed. In order to save the crop on such cold nights, farmers fill their fields with water because water has high specific heat capacity, so it does not allow the temperature in the surrounding area of plants to fall up to 0^{o}C.

Question 24

Discuss the role of high specific heat capacity of water with reference to climate in coastal areas

Answer 24

The specific heat capacity of water is very high. It is about five times as high as that of sand. Hence the heat energy required for the same rise in temperature by a certain mass of water will be nearly five times than that required by the same mass of sand. Similarly, a certain mass of water will give out nearly five times more heat energy than that given by sand of the same mass for the same fall in temperature. As such, sand gets heated or cooled more rapidly as compared to water under the similar conditions. Thus a large difference in temperature is developed between the land and the sea due to which land and sea breezes are formed. These breezes make the climate near the sea shore moderate.

Question 25

The reason is that water does not cool quickly due to its large specific heat capacity, so a hot water bottle provides heat energy for fomentation for a long time.

Question 26

Water property of water makes it an effective coolant?

Answer 26

By allowing water to flow in pipes around the heated parts of a machine, heat energy from such part is removed. Water in pipes extracts more heat from surrounding without much rise in its temperature because of its large specific heat capacity. So, Water is used as an effective coolant.

Question 27

Give one example each where high specific heat capacity of water is used (i) as coolant, (ii) as heat reservoir

Answer 27

(i)Radiator in car.

(ii)To avoid freezing of wine and juice bottles

Question 28

A liquid X has specific heat capacity higher than the liquid Y. Which liquid is useful as (i) coolant in car radiators and, (ii) heat reservoir to keep juice bottles without freezing?

Answer 28

The specific heat capacity of liquid X is higher than that of Y. So, for same mass and same heat energy, the rise in temperature for X will be less than that of Y.

(i) As a coolant in car radiators, the liquid needs to absorb more energy without much change in temperature. So, liquid X is ideal for this function.

(ii) As a heat reservoir to keep juice bottles without freezing, the liquid needs to give out large amount of heat before reaching freezing temperatures. Hence, liquid X is ideal for this function.

Question 29

(a) What is calorimeter?

(b)Name the material of which it is made of. Give two reasons for using the material stated by you.

(c) Out of the three metals A, B and C of specific heat 900 J kg^{-1} ^{°}C^{-1}, 380 J kg^{-1} °C-1 and 460 J kg^{-1} ^{°}C^{-1 }respectively, which will you prefer for calorimeter? Given reason.

(d) How is the loss of heat due to radiation minimized in a calorimeter?

Answer 29

(a)A calorimeter is a cylindrical vessel which is used to measure the amount of heat gained or lost by a body when it is mixed with other body.

(b)It is made up of thin copper sheet because:

(i) Copper is a good conductor of heat, so the vessel soon acquires the temperature of its contents.

(ii)Copper has low specific heat capacity so the heat capacity of calorimeter is low and the amount of heat energy taken by the calorimeter from its contents to acquire the temperature of its contents is negligible.

(c)Heat capacity of the calorimeter should be low so out of three metals the one which have lowet specific heat capacity should be preferred.

(d) By polishing the outer and inner surface of the vessel the loss due to radiation can be minimized.

Question 30

Why the base of a cooking pan is made thick and heavy?

Answer 30

By making the base of a cooking pan thick, its thermal capacity becomes large and it imparts sufficient heat energy at a low temperature to the food for its proper cooking. Further it keeps the food warm for a long time, after cooking.

## ICSE Class 10th Calorimetry Numerical (Chapter 11 A)

Question 1

By imparting heat to a body, its temperature rises by 15^{0}C. What is the corresponding rise in temperature on the Kelvin scale?

Answer 1.

The size of 1 degree on the Kelvin scale is the same as the size of 1 degree on the Celsius scale. Thus, the difference (or change) in temperature is the same on both the Celsius and Kelvin scales.

Therefore, the corresponding rise in temperature on the Kelvin scale will be 15K.

Question 2.

a)Calculate the heat capacity of a copper vessel of mass 150 g if the specific heat capacity of copper is 410 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}.

The specific heat capacity of copper = 410 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}.

Heat capacity= Mass X specific heat capacity

=0.15 kg X 410Jkg^{-1}K^{-1}

=61.5JK^{-1}

Answer 3

(i)We know that heat energy needed to raise the temperature by 15^{o} is = heat capacity x change in temperature.

Heat energy required= 966 J K^{-1} x 15 K = 14490 J.

(ii)We know that specific heat capacity is = heat capacity/ mass of substance

So specific heat capacity is = 966 / 2=483 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}.

Answer 12

Mass of hot water (m_{1}) = 300 g

Temperature (T_{1}) = 50^{o}C

Mass of cold water (m_{2}) = 600 g

Change in temperature of cold water (T-T_{2}) =15^{o}C

Final temperature =T^{o}C

The specific heat capacity of water is c.

T = 20^{o}C.

Final temperature = 20^{o} c

How does the (a) average kinetic energy (b) average potential energy of molecules of a substance change during its change in phase at a constant temperature, on heating?

Answer 4

(a) Average kinetic energy does not change.

(b) Average potential energy increases.

Explanation: When a substance is heated at constant temperature (i.e. during its phase change state), the heat supplied makes the vibrating molecules gain potential energy to overcome the intermolecular force of attraction and move about freely. This means that the substance changes its form.

However, this heat does not increase the kinetic energy of the molecules, and hence, no rise in temperature takes place during the change in phase of a substance.

This heat supplied to the substance is known as latent heat and is utilized in changing the state of matter without any rise in temperature.

Answer 21

Latent heat is absorbed by ice.

Question 22

Which has more heat: 1 g of ice at 0^{o} C or 1 g of water at 0^{o}C? Give reasons.

Answer 22

1 g of water at 0^{o}C has more heat than 1 g of ice at 0^{o}C. This is because ice at 0^{o}C absorbs 360 J of heat energy to convert into water at 0^{o}C.

Question 23

(a) Which requires more heat: 1 g ice at 0^{o} C or 1 g water at 0^{o}C to raise its temperature to 10^{o}C? (b) Explain your answer in part (a).

Answer 23

(a) 1 g ice at 0^{o}C requires more heat because ice would require additional heat energy equal to latent heat of melting.

(b) 1 g ice at 0^{o}C first absorbs 336 J heat to convert into 1 g water at 0^{o}C.

Question 24

Ice cream appears colder to the mouth than water at 0^{o}C. Give reasons.

Answer 24

This is because 1 g of ice at 0^{o}C takes 336 J of heat energy from the mouth to melt at 0^{o}C. Thus mouth loses an additional 336 J of heat energy for 1 g of ice at 0^{o}C than for 1g of water at 0^{o}C. Therefore cooling produced by 1 g of ice at 0^{o}C is more than for 1g of water at 0^{o}C.

Question 25

The soft drink bottles are cooled by (i) ice cubes at 0°C, and (ii) iced-water at 0°C. Which will cool the drink quickly? Give reason

Answer 25

This is because 1 g of ice at 0^{o}C takes 336 J of heat energy from the bottle to melt into water at 0^{o}C. Thus bottle loses an additional 336 J of heat energy for 1 g of ice at 0^{o}C than for 1 g iced water at 0^{o}C. Therefore bottled soft drinks get cooled, more quickly by the ice cubes than by iced water.

Question 26

It is generally cold after a hailed storm than during and before the hail storm. Give reasons.

Answer 26

The reason is that after the hail storm, the ice absorbs the heat energy required for melting from the surrounding, so the temperature of the surrounding falls further down and we feel colder

Question 27

The temperature of surroundings starts falling when ice in a frozen lake starts melting. Give reasons.

Answer 27

The reason is that the heat energy required for melting the frozen lake is absorbed from the surrounding atmosphere. As a result, the temperature of the surrounding falls and it became very cold.

Question 28

Water in lakes and ponds do not freeze at once in cold countries. Give reason

Answer 28

The specific latent heat of fusion of ice is sufficiently high, about 336 J g^{-1}. Before freezing the water in the lakes and ponds will have to release a large quantity of heat to the surrounding. If there is any layer of ice formed on water than water being a poor conductor of heat will also prevent the loss of heat from water of lake. Hence, in cold countries water in lakes and ponds do not freeze.

Question 29

Explain the following:

(a) The surroundings become pleasantly warm when water in a lake starts freezing in cold countries.

(b) The heat supplied to a substance during its change of state, does not cause any rise in its temperature

Answer 29

(a) The reason is that the specific latent heat of fusion of ice is sufficiently high, so when the water of lake freezes, a large quantity of heat has to be released and hence the surrounding temperature becomes pleasantly warm.

(b) Heat supplied to a substance during its change of state, does not cause any rise in its temperature because this is latent heat of phase change which is required to change the phase only.

## Numerical Problem (Exercise 11 B) Calorimetry

Question 1

10g of ice at 0^{o}C absorbs 5460J of heat energy to melt and change to water at 50^{o}C. Calculate the specific latent heat of fusion of ice. Specific heat capacity of water is 4200Jkg^{-1}K^{-1}.

Answer 1

Mass of ice=10g = 0.01kg

Amount of heat energy absorbed, Q=5460J

Specific latent heat of fusion of ice=?

Specific heat capacity of water = 4200Jkg^{-1}K^{-1}

Amount of heat energy required by 10g (0.01kg) of water at 0^{o}C to raise its temperature by 50^{o}C= 0.01X4200X50=2100J.

Let Specific latent heat of fusion of ice=L Jg^{-1}.

Then,

Q = mL + mcT

5460 J =10 x L + 2100J

L=336Jg^{-1}.

Question 2

How much heat energy is released when 5.0 g of water at 20^{o}C changes into ice at 0^{o}C? Take specific heat capacity of water =4.2 J g^{-1 }K^{-1}, specific latent heat of fusion of ice =336 J g^{-1}.

Answer 2

Mass of water m = 5.0 g

specific heat capacity of water c = 4.2 J g^{-1 }K^{-1}

specific latent heat of fusion of iceL =336 J g^{-1}

Amount of heat energy released when 5.0 g of water at 20^{o}C changes into water at 0^{o}C = 5 x 4.2 x 20 = 420 J.

Amount of heat energy released when 5.0g of water at 0^{o}C changes into ice at 0^{o}C=5x336J=1680J.

Total amount of heat released =1680 J + 420 J = 2100 J.

Question 3

A molten metal of mass 150 g is kept at its melting point 800^{o}C. When it is allowed to freeze at the same temperature, it gives out 75000 J of heat energy.

(a)What is the specific latent heat of the metal?

(b) If the specific heat capacity of metal is 200 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}, how much additional heat energy will the metal give out in cooling to -50^{o}C?

Answer 3

Mass of metal =150 g

Specific latent heat of metal

Specific heat capacity of metal is 200 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}.

Change in temperature= 800-(-50) = 850^{o}C (or 850 K).

Question 4

A refrigerator converts 100g of water at 20^{o}C to ice at -10^{o}C in 73.5 min. calculate the average rate of heat extraction in watt. The specific heat capacity of water is 4.2 Jg^{-1}K^{-1}, specific latent heat of ice is 336Jg^{-1} and the specific heat capacity of ice is 2.1Jg^{-1}K^{-1}.

Answer 4

Amount of heat released when 100g of water cools from 20^{o} to 0^{o}C =100X20X4.2=8400J.

Amount of heat released when 100g of water converts into ice at 0^{o}C =100X336=33600J.

Amount of heat released when 100g of ice cools from 0^{o}C to -10^{o}C =100X10X2.1=2100J.

Total amount of heat=8400+33600+2100=44100J.

Time taken= 73.5min=4410s.

Average rate of heat extraction (power)

Question 5

In an experiment, 17 g of ice is used to bring down the temperature of 40 g of water at 34^{o}C to its freezing temperature. The specific heat capacity of water is 4.2 J g^{-1 }K^{-1}. Calculate the specific latent heat of ice. State one important assumption made in the above calculation.

Answer 5

Mass of ice m_{1} =17 g

Mass of water m_{2} =40 g.

Change in temperature =34-0=34K

Specific heat capacity of water is 4.2Jg^{-1}K^{-1}.

Assuming there is no loss of heat, heat energy gained by ice (latent heat of ice), Q= heat energy released by water

Q = 40 x 34 x 4.2 = 5712 J.

Specific latent heat of ice=.

Question 6

Find the result of mixing 10g of ice at -10^{o}C with 10g of water at 10^{o}C. Specific heat capacity of ice is 2.1Jg^{-1}K^{-1}, specific latent heat of ice is 336Jg^{-1}, and specific heat capacity of water is 4.2Jg^{-1} K^{-1}.

Answer 6

Let whole of the ice melts and let the final temperature of the mixture be T^{o}C.

Amount of heat energy gained by 10g of ice at -10^{o}C to raise its temperature to 0^{o}C= 10x10x2.1=210J

Amount of heat energy gained by 10g of ice at 0^{o}C to convert into water at 0^{o}C=10×336=3360 J

Amount of heat energy gained by 10g of water (obtained from ice) at 0^{o}C to raise its temperature to T^{o}C = 10×4.2x(T-0)=42T

Amount of heat energy released by 10g of water at 10^{o}C to lower its temperature to T^{o}C = 10×4.2x(10-T)=420-42T

Heat energy gained = Heat energy lost

210 + 3360 + 42T = 420-42T

T = -37.5^{o}C

This cannot be true because water cannot exist at this temperature.

So whole of the ice does not melt. Let m gm of ice melts. The final temperature of the mixture becomes 0^{o}C.

So, amount of heat energy gained by 10g of ice at -10^{o}C to raise its temperature to 0^{o}C= 10x10x2.1=210J

Amount of heat energy gained by m gm of ice at 0^{o}C to convert into water at 0^{o}C=mx336=336m J

Amount of heat energy released by 10g of water at 10^{o}C to lower its temperature to 0^{o}C = 10×4.2x(10-0)=420

Heat energy gained = Heat energy lost

210 + 336m = 420

m = 0.625 gm

Question 7

A piece of ice of mass 40 g is added to 200 g of water at 50^{o}C. Calculate the final temperature of water when all the ice has melted. Specific heat capacity of water is 4200 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}, specific latent heat of fusion of ice =336 x 10^{3} J kg^{-1}.

Answer 7

Let final temperature of water when all the ice has melted =T^{o}C.

Amount of heat lost when 200g of water at 50^{o}C cools to T^{o}C=

200X4.2X(50-T) = 42000-840T

Amount of heat gained when 40g of ice at 0^{o}C converts into water at 0^{o}C.= 40X336J = 13440 J

Amount of heat gained when temperature of 40g of water at 0^{o}C rises to T^{o}C= 40X4.2X(T-0) = 168T

We know that

Amount of heat gained=amount of heat energy lost.

13440+168T= 42000-840T

168T+840T= 42000-13440

1008T= 28560

T=28560/1008=28.33^{o}C.

Question 8

250 g of water at 30^{o }C is contained in a copper vessel of mass 50 g. Calculate the mass of ice required to bring down the temperature of vessel and its contents to 5^{o }C. specific latent heat of fusion of ice = 336 x 10^{3} J kg^{-1}, specific heat capacity of copper = 400 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}, specific heat capacity of water is 4200 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}.

Answer 8

Mass of copper vessel m_{1 }= 50 g.

Mass of water contained in copper vessel m_{2 }= 250 g.

Mass of ice required to bring down the temperature of vessel = m

Final temperature = 5^{o }C.

Amount of heat gained when ‘m’ g of ice at 0^{o }C converts into water at 0^{o }C = m × 336 J

Amount of heat gained when temperature of ‘m’ g of water at 0^{o }C rises to 5^{o }C = m × 4.2 × 5

Total amount of heat gained = m × 336 + m × 4.2 × 5

Amount of heat lost when 250 g of water at 30^{o }C cools to 5^{o }C =

250 × 4.2 x 25 = 26250 J

Amount of heat lost when 50 g of vessel at 30^{o }C cools to 5^{o }C =

50 x 0.4 × 25 = 500 J

Total amount of heat lost = 26250 + 500 = 26750 J

We know that amount of heat gained = amount of heat lost

m × 336 + m × 4.2 × 5 = 26750

357 m = 26750

m = 26750/357 = 74.93 g

Hence, mass of ice required is 74.93 g.

Question 9

2 kg of ice melts when water at 100^{o}C is poured in a hole drilled in a block of ice. What mass of water was used? Specific heat capacity of water is 4200 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}, specific latent heat of fusion of ice = 336 J g^{-1}.

Answer 9

Since the whole block does not melt and only 2 kg of it melts, so the final temperature would be 0^{ o}C.

Amount of heat energy gained by 2 kg of ice at 0^{o}C to convert into water at 0^{o}C=2X336000=672000 J

Let amount of water poured=m kg.

Initial temperature of water =100^{o}C.

Final temperature of water =0^{o}C.

Amount of heat energy lost by m kg of water at 100^{o}C to reach temperature 0^{o}C =mX4200X100 = 420000m J

We know that heat energy gained =heat energy lost.

672000J= mX420000J

m=672000/420000=1.6kg

Question 10

Calculate the total amount of heat energy required to convert 100 g of ice at -10^{o }C completely into water at 100^{o }C. Specific heat capacity of ice 2.1 J g^{-1 }K^{-1}, specific heat capacity of water is 4.2 J g^{-1 }K^{-1}, specific latent heat of fusion of ice = 336 J g^{-1}

Answer 10

Amount of heat energy gained by 100 g of ice at -10^{o }C to raise its temperature to 0^{o }C =

100 × 2.1 × 10 = 2100 J

Amount of heat energy gained by 100 g of ice at 0^{o }C to convert into water at 0^{o }C =

100 × 336 = 33600 J

Amount of heat energy gained when temperature of 100 g of water at 0^{o }C rises to 100^{o }C =

100 × 4.2 × 100 = 42000 J

Total amount of heat energy gained is = 2100 + 33600 + 42000 = 77700 J = 7.77 × 10^{4} J

Question 11

The amount of heat energy required to convert 1 kg of ice at -10^{o}C completely into water at 100^{o}C is 777000 J. calculate the specific latent heat of ice. Specific heat capacity of ice = 2100 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}, Specific heat capacity of water is 4200 J kg^{-1 }K^{-1}.

Answer 11

Amount of heat energy gained by 1kg of ice at -10^{o}C to raise its temperature to 0^{o}C= 1 x 2100 x 10 = 21000 J

Amount of heat energy gained by 1kg of ice at 0^{o}C to convert into water at 0^{o}C=L

Amount of heat energy gained when temperature of 1kg of water at 0^{o}C rises to 100^{o}C= 1 x 4200 x 100 = 420000 J

Total amount of heat energy gained = 21000+420000+L=441000 +L.

Given that total amount of heat gained is =777000J.

So,

441000+L=777000.

L=777000-441000.

L=336000JKg^{-1}

Question 12

200 g of ice at 0 °C converts into water at 0 °C in 1 minute when heat is supplied to it at a constant rate. In how much time, 200 g of water at 0 °C will change to 20 °C? Take specific latent heat of ice = 336 J g^{-1}.

Answer 12

Mass of ice, mice = 200 g

Time for ice to melt, t1 = 1 min = 60 s

Mass of water, mw = 200 g

Temperature change of water, ΔT = 20 °C

Rate of heat exchange is constant. So, power required for converting ice to water is same as the power required to increase the temperature of water.

Hence, the time required is 15 seconds.
