Answer: 45.6 gm

3] Suppose your skin has an emissivity of 0.70 and
that 0.27 m^{2 } of bare skin is exposed to

the air which is at a temperature of 20^{o}C. Assume
your skin is at a temperature of 37^{o}C and

determine the net power radiated by this exposed area of skin.

Answer: 20 W

1] The
typical speed of sound in air is given as
340 m/s. Assume the molar mass of
air to be

29.0 gm/mole. At what temperature (in^{o}C )
will
the air molecules have an average (or rms)

speed equal to the typical speed of sound?

2] A 3.50 liter tank of oxygen is at a temperature of 20.0^{o}C
and a
pressure of 25.0 atmospheres.

ANSW: 0.116 kg

4] If 14.4 grams of steam at 150^{o}C are added to 300 grams of
water at
10.0 ^{o}C , what final equilibrium

temperature is reached ?

3] The door on a wood stove used for heating a room is a square iron plate (25 cm on a side) with a

thickness of 1.25 cm. The temperature inside the stove is 250^{o}C while the
temperature on the outside

door face is 200^{o}C. How much heat
passes through the door in 1 hour? (k
= 79.5 J/s**·**m**·**^{o}C for iron)

29.0 gm/mole. At what temperature (in

speed equal to the typical speed of sound?

2] A 3.50 liter tank of oxygen is at a temperature of 20.0

If the molecular mass of
oxygen is 32.0 gm/mole, what is the mass
of oxygen in the tank?

4] If 14.4 grams of steam at 150

temperature is reached ?

ANSW: 40 degrees Celsius

3] The door on a wood stove used for heating a room is a square iron plate (25 cm on a side) with a

thickness of 1.25 cm. The temperature inside the stove is 250

door face is 200

4] Air has a much lower thermal conductivity than
foam insulation. Why then do we put foam

insulation in the walls and ceilings of houses?

Answer: To prevent convection. It is
"dead" air spaces that are needed. In open wall and ceiling

spaces the air will convect heat from inner "warm"
walls to the outer "cold" walls.
