Exercises for the First
Write down the initial temperatures for each of the two
Click once on the vertical red bar (and WAIT!); observe the mixing of the gases
Close the chambers and go back to lab page
- What do you think the final equilibrium temperature will be?
- Why are there more particles in the cold side than the warm
side when you first start mixing the chambers?
- How long does it take for the temperature to equilibrate?
- After equilibrium is reached close the chamber door and raise the
temperature in the right chamber to 900 degrees. Reopen the chamber
to determine the new equilibrium temperature.
