Problem 16DQ

A compressed spring is clamped in its compressed position and then is dissolved in acid. What becomes of its potential energy?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 16DQ Step 1 of 1: When the compressed spring is dissolved into acid, the material of the spring reacts with the acid and the potential energy stored in the spring will be converted into heat energy , due to the reaction with the acid acquire kinetic energy , and as they collide acid molecules, this kinetic energy is converted into heat energy.

Step 2 of 1
