In order to take a nice warm bath, you mix 50 liters of hot water at 55°C with 25 liters of cold water at 10°C. How much new entropy have you created by mixing the water?
To find the new entropy have you created by mixing the water
Temperature of hot water TH = 55°C = 328 K
Volume of Hot water VH = 50 L = 50 x 10-3 m3
Temperature of cold water TC = 10°C = 283 K
Volume of Cold water VC = 25 L = 25 x 10-3 m3
Mass of Hot water mH = Vx Density of water
mH = 50x10-3 m3x 1000 Kg/m3
mH = 50 Kg
Mass of Cold water mC = 25 Kg
Final temperature of the system
TF = 335 K
