Problem 16.58

In Figure 16.2c the hand moves the end of the Slinky up and down through two complete cycles in one second. The wave moves along the Slinky at a speed of 0.50 m/s. Find the distance between two adjacent crests on the wave.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

 Two systems in contact o Microstates multiply, entropies add  We know that energy is what makes things happen  Lowering energy can drive processes o Spontaneity when Q is out (Q < 0)  Increasing energy can drive things o Spontaneity when entropy increases (change in S > 0)  Spontaneity is the balance of these two factors  Usually significantly more ways to move energy around than matter so the total number of microstates is typically dominated by energy  The number of microstates in a combination of two sub­systems multiplies o Wtotal = WA x WB  Since entropy is the logarithm of W, entropies add o Stotal = KB x ln(Wtotal) o Stotal = KB x ln(WA x WB) o Stotal =[ KB x ln(WA)] + [KB
