A big steam boiler is made of steel and weighs 900 kilograms empty. When filled with water, the boiler can hold 400 kilograms of water. Assuming that only 70% of the heat is delivered to the boiler steel and water (the rest goes up the chimminey) How much heat is required to raise the temperature of the entire apparatus from 20 degrees C to 100 degrees C? The specific heat of steel is 0.46 Joules/gram-degree C. <br>a. 238 megaJoules <br>b. 374 megaJoules <br>c. 418 megaJoules <br>d. 593 megaJoules <br>e. 619 megaJoules
n(Energy conversion efficiency) = 0.7 or 70% m(steel) = 900 kg = 900 000 g m(water) = 400 kg = 400 000 g s(steel) = 0.46 J/(g*C) s(water) = 4.186 J/(g*C) t1 = 20 C t2 = 100 C dT = 100 - 20 = 80 C Q(100%) = Q(steel) + Q(water) Q(100%) = m(steel) * s(steel) * dT + m(water) * s(water) * dT Q(100%) = 900 000 g * 0.46 J/(g*C) * 80 C + 400 000 g * 4.186 J/(g*C) * 80 C = 167.1 MJ Q(70%) = Q(100%) / 0.7 = 238.7 MJ The right answer is a. 238 megaJoules.
I am extremely satisfied! It passed all tests on Dr Java and I also ran it through cmd junit. All 190 tests worked. I'm very impressed. I almost lost faith that there's anyone out there to help until I found your site.
I'm extremely satisfied. You have shown excellence.
I have good news to share. I'm starting master degree in computer science from August 2017.
I hope to depend on you for the next 2 years and I hope you can help me on thesis also.
You are the only reliable help I have.
Thanks a lot!!!!
