# Section 16.2 Heat and Thermodynamics Worksheet Answer Key

The Heat and Thermodynamics Worksheet Answer Key are easy to use and much better than most. You can use it to find out about the basic functions of the various materials in the worksheet such as its volume, bulk density, total weight, enthalpy, and entropy.

If you look up ‘specific heat’ in a thermodynamics book or online, you will find that it gives a value for the amount of heat that can be obtained from a material under certain conditions. This includes an element that has a specific heat of formation. Then there is the ‘effective thermal conductivity’ which gives the heat required to pass through a material at a certain velocity and then there is the ‘operating temperature’ which shows the temperature at which the material operates.

Each of these parameters can be explained in more detail in the section of the worksheet referred to as the Table of Thermodynamic Properties. When the Table of Thermodynamic Properties is turned on, the Worksheet Answer Key then goes into the details of each parameter and compares it with a reference point of known temperature.

Then this data is compared with the calculated data from the reference point to determine whether the data correspond to real data, if not, the data is marked with a ‘?’ At the top of the Worksheet Answer Key so that the user can go on to the next section and review the data.

It will be difficult to keep up with all the sections in the Table of Thermodynamic Properties as they all have to be reviewed individually. For instance, one section may show that the gas at the top of the Worksheet Answer Key is 10 times hotter than the rest, but only when the gas is added to water. When the gas is added to a pure ice cube, the temperature is still a little lower.

A perfect example of this is that the gas at the top of the Worksheet Answer Key is in fact about twice as hot as the gas at the bottom. Now, on the table, the amount of heat given off is given by the work done by the molecule. The work is therefore directly related to the molecular mass.
