|A cylinder containing an ideal gas has a volume of 2.0 m3 and a pressure of 1.0*10^5 Pa at a temperature of 300 K. The cylinder is placed against a metal block that is maintained at 900 K and the gas expands as the pressure remains constant until the temperature of the gas reaches 900 K. The change in internal energy of the gas is 6.0*10^5 J. Find the change in entropy of the block associated with the heat transfer to the gas.
|I take 1.0 kg of ice and dump it into 1.0 kg of water and, when equilibrium is reached, I have 2.0 kg of ice at 0°C. The water was originally at 0°C. The specific heat of water = 1.00 kcal/kg*°C, the specific heat of ice = 0.50 kcal/kg*°C, and the latent heat of fusion of water is 80 kcal/kg. The original temperature of the ice was:
