The power radiated by a distant star is 4.2 x10 27 W. The radius of the star, which may be considered a perfect radiator, is 1.06 x 1010 m. Determine the surface temperature of the star. Solution: This is a problem of thermal radiation. The rate at which energy is being radiated is proportional to the “fourth power of the absolute temperature. This behavior is known as Stefan’s Law,” From this behavior we can see that the energy radiated is also proportional to the surface area of the star. AeT 4 T ( ) Ae 1 4 e is the emissivity of the object; since we make the assumption that the star is a perfect radiator, we can conclude that it also is a perfect absorber or a black body; therefore e=1. Another assumption is that the star is a perfect sphere, and therefore the surface area is: A 4 r 2 | r radius T ( 1 4.2 x1027 W 4 ) ( 4 4 r 2 e 4 (1.06 x1010 m) 2 (1)(5.6696 x108 WK T 2691.3K 2690 K 1 )4 m2 ) 7. A 905.0 g iron meteor impacts the earth at a speed of 1629.0 m/s. If its energy is entirely converted to heat of the meteorite, what will the resultant temperature rise be?

Assume that the sun is a sphere of radius 6.96 x 10 m and that its surface temperature is 5.8 x 10 K. a) If the sun is a perfect emitter, at what rate is energy emitted from the surface of the sun? b) What is the rate per square meter at the sun's surface - that is, the Intensity? c)What is the Intensity at which energy is received on Earth in one hour? Ignore effects of absorption due to the 11 atmosphere. The average distance from the Earth to the sun is 1.50 x 10 m. The intensity of solar radiation reaching the top of the Earth’s atmosphere is 1 340 W/m 2 9. A granite wall has a thickness of 0.61 m and a thermal conductivity of 2.1 W/(m • C°). The temperature on one face of the wall is 3.2 °C and 20.0 °C on the opposite face. How much heat is transferred in one hour through each square meter of the granite wall? Solution: Power describes the amount of energy given off over a period of time. Since the energy being given off is only in the form of heat, we can conclude that: Q P t dT The law of thermal conduction can be described as P kA where k is the thermal conductivity of the dx 1 1min material. The change in time is: 1hour ( )( ) 3600s 60 min 60s dT Th Tc The Temperature gradient is | l length dx l Th Tc Q 20.0C o 3.2C o W tk ( ) (3600s)(2.1 )( ) 208209.8 J 2 mC o m A l 0.61m J s( ) o W C sW J )( ) 2 s2 2 Unit analysis: s( o mC m m m m So we have that 208209.8 Joules transferred per meter square. 10.

The force pushing inward over this area amounts to F P0A P0 4 R 2 .

A constant-volume gas thermometer is calibrated in dry ice (that is, carbon dioxide in the solid state, which has a temperature of –80.0°C) and in boiling ethyl alcohol (78.0°C). The two pressures are 0.900 atm and 1.635 atm. (a) What Celsius value of absolute zero does the calibration yield? What is the pressure at (b) the freezing point of water and (c) the boiling point of water?

An aluminum pipe, 0.655 m long at 20.0C and open at both ends, is used as a flute. The pipe is cooled to a low temperature, but then filled with air at 20.0C as soon as you start to play it.
