Heat and Temperature

Definition of Terms
The sum total of all the energy of all the molecules
in a substance is its internal (or thermal) energy.
Temperature: measures molecules’ average kinetic
Internal energy: total energy of all molecules
Heat: energy transfered due to difference in
Heat transfer flows from High Temperature to Low
There are properties of matter that change with
temperature like its physical dimensions,
electrical resistances and color radiated.
Temperature and Thermometers
Thermometers are instruments designed to measure
temperature. In order to do this, they take advantage of some
property of matter that changes with temperature.
Temperature Scales

• Absolute Scales: principle of constant-

volume pressure
• -when pressure inside goes to zero at
const. volume or zero volume at
constant pressure
• Kelvin: Absolute in centigrade scale :
Thermal Equilibrium and the
Zeroth Law of
Two objects placed in thermal contact will
eventually come to the same temperature. When
they do, we say they are in thermal equilibrium.
The zeroth law of thermodynamics says that if two
objects are each in equilibrium with a third object,
they are also in thermal equilibrium with each other.
Effects of Heat :Thermal
17-4 Thermal Expansion
Effect of Heat: Specific Heat
The amount of heat required to change
the temperature of a material is
proportional to the mass and to the
temperature change:

The specific heat, c, is characteristic of the

material. Some values are listed at left.
Heat is expressed in calories with a
conversion factor given below

4.186 J = 1 cal
4.186 kJ = 1 kcal
19-3 Specific Heat

Example 19-2: How heat transferred depends on specific heat.

(b) How much heat input is needed to raise the temperature
of an empty 20-kg vat made of iron from 10°C to 90°C?
(b) What if the vat is filled with 20 kg of water?
Calorimetry: quantitative
measurement of heat
Closed system: no mass enters or leaves, but energy may be
Open system: mass may transfer as well
Isolated system:system,
For an isolated closed system in which no energy in any form is
energy out of one part = energy into another part,
or: heat lost = heat gained.
Effect of Heat: Phase
Latent heat: Energy is required for a material to change phase, even
though its temperature is not changing.
Latent Heat
Heat of fusion, LF: heat required to change 1.0 kg of material from
solid to liquid
Heat of vaporization, LV: heat required to change 1.0 kg of material
from liquid to vapor
Problem Solving: Calorimetry
2. Is the system isolated? Are all significant sources of energy
transfer known or calculable?
3. Apply conservation of energy.
4. If no phase changes occur, the heat transferred will depend
on the mass, specific heat, and temperature change.

4. If there are, or may be, phase changes, terms that depend on

the mass and the latent heat may also be present. Determine or
estimate what phase the final system will be in.
5. Make sure that each term is in the right place and that all the
temperature changes are positive.
6. There is only one final temperature when the system reaches
7. Solve.
Example 19-6: Determining a latent heat.
The specific heat of liquid mercury is 140 J/kg·°C. When 1.0 kg
of solid mercury at its melting point of -39°C is placed in a 0.50-
kg aluminum calorimeter filled with 1.2 kg of water at 20.0°C,
the mercury melts and the final temperature of the combination
is found to be 16.5°C. What is the heat of fusion of mercury in
