Two systems are in thermal equilibrium if and only if they have the same temperature. Two systems that are each in thermal equilibrium with a third system are in thermal equilibrium with each other.
Most materials expand when their temperature increases. Linear Expansion Expansion in one dimension (usually the length) change in length is proportional to the change in temperature Materialα (1/ o C) Aluminum24 x Brass & Bronze19 x Copper17 x Steel11 x Concrete12 x 10 -6
A steel railroad track has a length of m when the temperature is 0 o C. What is its length on a hot day when the temperature is 40 o C? α = 11 x ( o C) -1
James Joule discovered by various means that he could heat a body of water by purely mechanical means: a) by lowering a weight and letting a paddle wheel stir the water b) by passing electric current through a resistor c) by compressing a piston immersed in the water d) by friction from rubbing blocks together. He found that about 800 foot-pounds ( 1 kilo joule) of work could raise the temperature of one pound (.45 kilograms) of water one Fahrenheit degree (0.55 o C).
Energy that is transferred from one object or system to another object or system as a result of a temperature difference. (The concept of heat only has meaning as energy in transit.) Heat flow is energy transfer. Units: Joule (J), calorie (cal), Calorie (Cal), British thermal unit (Btu) Unit Relations JoulescaloriesCaloriesBtu x x x The calorie is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water from 14.5 o C to 15.5 o C. One Btu is defined as the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 pound of water from 63 o F to 64 o F.
Quantity of heat needed to change the temperature of a system is dependent on three things: 1. The quantity of the temperature change. 2. The mass of the system. 3. The nature of the material. The amount of heat Q needed for a certain temperature change Δ T is proportional to the temperature change and to the mass m of substance being heated;

His body temperature was 39.0 o C (102.2 o F) instead of the normal 37 o C. Assuming that the human body is mostly water, how much heat was required to raise his temperature by that amount?
You are an electric engineer designing an electronic circuit element made of 23 mg of silicon. The electric current through it adds energy at the rate of 7.4 mW (7.4 x J/s). If your design doesn’t allow for any heat transfer out of the element, at what rate does its temperature increase? The specific heat capacity of silicon is 705 J/(kg · K).
Ingot - metal that is cast in the shape of a block for convenient handling A kg ingot of metal is heated to o C and then dropped into a beaker containing kg of water that is initially at 20.0 o C. If the final equilibrium temperature of the mixed system is 22.4 o C, find the specific heat of the metal.
Three familiar phases of matter include: 1. Gases 2. Liquids 3. Solids …but there are more than those three including… plasmas, superfluids, supersolids, Bose-Einstein condensates, fermionic condensates, liquid crystals, strange matter and quark-gluon plasmas
Transition from one phase of matter to another What goes on during a phase change? At a given pressure, phase changes: 1. usually occur at a definite temperature* 2. heat is absorbed or released 3. there is a change in volume of the matter 4. there is a change in density of the matter *At this temperature and pressure both phases of matter can coexist, this is called phase equilibrium.

To cause a phase change energy must be absorbed or released by the object/system. During the phase change the heat energy does not change the temperature of the object.
A physics student wants to cool 0.25 kg of Mountain Dew (mostly water and high fructose corn syrup ) initially at 20 o C by adding ice initially at -20 o C. How much ice should she add so that the final temperature will be 0 o C with all the ice melted? Assume that the heat capacity of the container may be neglected.
There are three mechanisms of heat transfer. 1. Radiation 2. Convection 3. Conduction
Energy transfer through electromagnetic radiation (fancy words for light) Ex.
Energy transfer of heat by the motion of a mass of fluid Ex.
heat transfer through a material from regions of higher temperatures to regions of lower temperatures Good thermal conductors are metals because they have many free electrons Ex. Rate of Heat Transfer…Heat Current (H)
The rate of heat transfer through a material with regions of varying temperatures is: proportional to the cross sectional area A. proportional to the temperature difference Δ T. inversely proportional to the distance between the regions L. The constant of proportionality is the thermal conductivity of the material k.
The Styrofoam TM box seen below is used to keep drinks cold at a picnic (or wild beach party whatever suits your taste). The total area of the sides, top, and bottom is 0.80 m 2, and the wall thickness is 2.0 cm. The box is filled with ice and Root Beer, keeping the inner surface at 0 o C. What is the rate of heat flow into the box if the temperature of the outside surface is 30 o C? How much ice melts in one day (24 hr.)?

A steel bar 10.0 cm long is welded end to end to a copper bar 20.0 cm long. Each bar has a square cross section, 2.00 cm on a side. The free end of the steel bar is in contact with steam at 100 o C, and the free end of the copper bar is in contact with ice at 0 o C. Find the temperature at the junction of the two bars and the total rate of heat flow. Materialk (W/(m · K) Steel50.2 Copper385
