# The heat capacity of a body depends on

A. the heat given

B. the temperature raised

C. the mass of the body

D. the material of the body

Answer :

We know

C=heat capacity

ΔQ=heat given

ΔT=change in temperature

As heat capacity is the heat given to the body to raise its temperature by unit degrees.

Heat capacity depends on the material of the body and mass of it.

A ball is dropped on a floor from a height of 2.0 m. After the collision it rises up to a height of 1.5 m. Assume that 40% of the mechanical energy lost goes as thermal energy into the ball. Calculate the rise in the temperature of the ball in the collision. Heat capacity of the ball is 800 J K^{–1}.

A van of mass 1500 kg travelling at a speed of 54 km h^{–1} is stopped in 10 s. Assuming that all the mechanical energy lost appears as thermal energy in the brake mechanism, find the average rate of production of thermal energy in cal s^{–1}.

Heat and work are equivalent. This means,

HC Verma - Concepts of Physics Part 2The temperature of a solid object is observed to be constant during a period. In this period.

HC Verma - Concepts of Physics Part 2A 50 kg man is running at a speed of 18 km h^{–1}. If all the kinetic energy of the man can be 9used to increase the temperature of water from 20°C to 30°C, how much water can be heated with this energy?

Calculate the time required to heat 20 kg of water from 10°C to 35°C using an immersion heater rated 1000 W. Assume that 80% of the power input is used to heat the water. Specific heat capacity of water = 4200 J kg^{–1} K^{–1}.

The temperature of an object is observed to rise in a period. In this period.
