Refer to the plot of temperature versus time (Fig. 11.2) showing the changes in the state of ice on heating (not to scale).
Which of the following is correct?
A. The region AB represents ice and water in thermal equilibrium.
B. At B water starts boiling.
C. At C all the water gets converted into steam.
D. C to D represents water and steam in equilibrium at boiling point.
As we know whenever any substance get heated continuously but its temperature not changing, then obviously the state changes i.e. solid to liquid or liquid to gas or similarly.
Now look carefully the above graph, we are seeing that part AB (0℃) and CD (100℃) represents the conversion of solid into liquid and liquid into gas respectively. That means part AB represents ice and water both till B, and part CD represents water and steam.
So from above we can say that option (b) is wrong and also option (c) is wrong because at D all waters get converted into steam. Hence options (a) & (d) are correct.

Calculate the stress developed inside a tooth cavity filled with copper when hot tea at temperature of 57o C is drunk. You can take body (tooth) temperature to be 37o C and α = 1.7× 10-5 /o C, bulk modulus for copper = 140 × 10 9 N/m2.Physics - Exemplar
We would like to prepare a scale whose length does not change with temperature. It is proposed to prepare a unit scale of this type whose length remains, say 10 cm. We can use a bimetallic strip made of brass and iron each of different length whose length (both components) would change in such a way that difference between their lengths remain constant. If αiron 1.2 X 10-5/ K and αbrass 1.8 X 10-5 /K , what should we take as length of each strip?Physics - Exemplar

A rail track made of steel having length 10 m is clamped on a railway line at its two ends (Fig 11.3). On a summer day due to rise in temperature by 20° C, it is deformed as shown in figure. Find x (displacement of the center) if αsteel = 1.2× 10-5 /°C.

We would like to make a vessel whose volume does not change with temperature (take a hint from the problem above). We can use brass and iron (βvbrass = 6 × 10-5/K and βviron = 3.55 ×10-5 / K) to create a volume of 100 cc. How do you think you can achieve this?Physics - Exemplar

A brass rod of length 50 cm and diameter 3.0 mm is joined to a steel rod of the same length and diameter. What is the change in length of the combined rod at 250 °C, if the original lengths are at 40.0 °C? Is there a ‘thermal stress’ developed at the junction? The ends of the rod are free to expand (Co-efficient of linear expansion of brass = 2.0 × 10–5 K–1, steel = 1.2 × 10–5 K–1).NCERT - Physics Part-II
