Problem 48PE

On a hot summer day, 4.00 × 106 J of heat transfer into a parked car takes place, increasing its temperature from 35.0º C to 45.0º C . What is the increase in entropy of the car due to this heat transfer alone?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution  48PE

S  = Q

T

Average temperature is

S  = 35 o C +45 oC

2

=  40o C

=   (40 o  C +  273.15) k

=  313.15 k

S  = Q

T

= 4.00x106  j

313..15k

=  1.28x104 j/k

he increase in entropy of the car is 1.28x104 j/k

Step 2 of 3

Step 3 of 3
