Perfectly rigid containers each hold ?n moles of ideal gas, one being hydrogen (H2) and the other being neon (Ne). If it takes 300 J of heat to increase the temperature of the hydrogen by 2.50o C, by how many degrees will the same amount of heat raise the temperature of the neon?

Problem 42E

Perfectly rigid containers each hold n moles of ideal gas, one being hydrogen () and the other being neon (Ne). If it takes 300 J of heat to increase the temperature of the hydrogen by , by how many degrees will the same amount of heat raise the temperature of the neon?

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 3

The amount of heat required to raise the temperature is .

The raise in temperature of hydrogen is .

The equation of heat transfer for hydrogen can be given as,

For, specific heat capacity of hydrogen, and .

Therefore,
