Problem 63P

CALC An object of mass ?m?1, specific heat ?c?1, and temperature T1 is placed in contact with a second object of mass ?m?2, specific heat c2, and temperature T2 > T1. As a result, the temperature of the first object increases to T and the temperature of the second object decreases to T’. (a) Show that the entropy increase of the system is and show that energy conservation requires that (b) Show that the entropy change ?S, considered as a function of T, is a ?maximum if T = T’, which is just the condition of thermodynamic equilibrium. (c) Discuss the result of part (b) in terms of the idea of entropy as a measure of randomness.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Chemistry 1: Chapter 1 Notes A highlight & bold= Definition *= conversion factor or unit/formula Bold= Examples & things you should know The Study of Chemistry  Chemistry-The study of matter and the changes that matter undergoes.  Matter- anything that has a mass and occupies space. The Scientific Method  Step 1: Gather data from observations and experiments. An observation is something that you can see it can be a natural phenomenon and measured events. Example: The milk is lumpy so it has spoiled. (Natural phenomenon) There are 5 dogs with 4 legs because of a mutation (measured events). 
