Okay, not sure if it's my turn or not but:

Why do different solids have different heat capacities?

How much heat is required to change ice at -20°C to steam at 120°C? (in Joules)

Constants:
Latent heat of fusion of water = 334,000 J/kg°C
Latent heat of vaporization of water = 2258,000 J/kg°C
Specific heat of ice = 2108 J/kg°C
Specific heat of water = 4186 J/kg°C
Specific heat of steam = 1996 J/kg°C

I'm sorry but how much does the ice weigh (or what is its mass)?

Answer
20*2108*m+334000*m+100*4186*m+2258000*m+20*1996*m = ~3,090,000 J/kg * m = ~3090 J/g * m

I'll just go... Consider a gas with an rms speed of 500 m/s in a box 1 m x 5 m x 1 m at STP. What is its mass?

Answer


If you plug in 8.314 for R, 273 for T, and 500 for v, you can solve for M (molar mass) which comes out to be 27.23 g/mol.

Using the ideal gas law, you can solve for the number of moles in the container, which comes out to be 223.2 mol.

From these two values, we can solve for the mass of the gas, which is 6.1 kg.

Pretty much right, probably off from my answer because of rounding

or

Your turn!

2.50 L of gas originally at 60 ̊C is warmed to 145 ̊C.

1. What is the new volume if the pressure remains constant?
2. Who named this law?

Answer
1) 1.99 L
2) Jacques Charles if you mean who the law was named after

Shouldnt the gas expand?
