Problem 7E

Which has the greater amount of internal energy—an iceberg or a cup of hot coffee? Defend your answer.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

The hot coffee has a high temperature but not a great internal energy and iceberg has a high internal energy per mass,its greater mass gives it a greater total energy than that in the small cup of coffee. Or The iceberg has the greater internal energy (“amount of heat”),because it has too much mass than the cup of coffee.it is also same even though the temperature of the coffee is higher.for a smaller volume of ice,the few number of more energetic molecule in the hot cup of coffee may constitute a greater total amount of internal energy but not compared to an iceberg.
