Temperature & Thermal Expansion of Solids &Liquids


What is temperature? Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics Scales of Measuring Temperature Concept Map of Thermal Expansion Linear, Area and Volume Expansion Unusual Behavior of Water Assessment

We often associate the concept of temperature with how hot or cold an object feels when we touch it.

However, our senses are unreliable and often mislead us. For example, if we remove a metal ice tray and a cardboard box of vegetable from a freezer. Which object feels colder to the touch?

Two objects at different initial temperatures eventually reach some intermediate temperature when placed in contact with each other. Mixing hot and cold water in a bathtub Dropping an ice cube into a cup of hot coffee. Definition: 1.Thermal contact when two objects at different temperatures exchanged energy between them due to a temperature difference, even if they are not in physical contact with each other. 2.Thermal Equilibrium when two objects would not exchange energy by heat or electromagnetic radiation if they were placed in thermal contact.

Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics

If objects A and B are separately in thermal equilibrium with a third
object C, then A and B are in thermal equilibrium with each other.

Hence, how do we define temperature?

Temperature is the property that determines whether an object is in thermal equilibrium with other objects. Temperature is a measure of the exchange of heat between two objects.

Change in Temperature
The change between two temperatures is specified in Celsius Degrees (C)

TK = TC = 5/9 TF

The Physics of Thermography Radiation emitted by an

object can also be used to indicate temperature. For low to moderate temperatures, the radiation emitted is infrared. Infrared camera registers the intensity of infrared radiation. It is then connected to a color monitor that displays the different infrared intensities at different colors. This thermal painting is called thermograph or thermogram. Thermography finds application in medicine, oceanography and meteorology

linear expansion has to be considered to minimize sagging of wires in between post. in the concreting of highways, construction of bridges and buildings, thermal expansion joints must compensate for dimensional changes that occur as temperature changes to avoid buckle-up when electronic devices are in operation, temperature increases and this must be considered in the design in the fabrication of materials for use in machine accesories such as diameter of rods and rings

Unusual behavior of water

Liquids generally increase in volume with increasing temperature and have about ten times greater than those of solids. But cold water is an exception to this rule. As temperature of water increases from 0 to 4 C, water contracts and its density increases. Above 4 C, water expands with increasing temperature and so its density decreases. The density of water, 1 g/cm3 (at 4 C), is For example, during winter time, when atmospheric therefore its maximum density. temperature drops from 7 C to 6 C, the surface water cools and consequently decreases in volume. Since it is denser than the water below it, which has not cooled and decreased in volume, it will sink and further and When the atmospheric temperature drops the warmer water from below is forced tothe surface water cooled. is between 4 C and 0 C, the surface to be expands as it cools becoming less dense than the water below it. The mixing process stops and eventually the surface water freezes.

Sample Problems: (This problems belong to high cognitive complexity level) #1. A brass ring of diameter 10.00 cm at 20C is heated and slipped over an aluminum rod of diameter 10.01 cm at 20C. Assuming the average of coefficients of linear expansion are constant, to what temperature must this combination be cooled to separate them? Is this attainable? ( al = 24 x 10-6 , brass = 19 x 10 -6 ) To conceptualize this problem, note that when the these two metals are cooled, both the diameter of the brass ring and the diameter of the aluminum rod will decrease. Since the coefficient of linear expansion of the aluminum is greater than that of the brass, its change in diameter will be greater than that of the brass given the same change in temperature. Note also that in order to separate these two metals, the change in diameter of the aluminum rod minus the change in diameter of the brass ring, Dal - Dbrass = 0.01 cm. Hence we can write,

= Ti Tf = Ti - T = 20 C - 199 C = - 179 C, this is attainable since when converted to

Kelvin, this gives

Tf = - 179 + 273 Tf = 94K (answer)

The stress on a steel beam

A steel beam is used in the roadbed of a bridge. The beam is mounted between two concrete supports when the temperature is 23C, with no room provided for thermal expansion. What compressional stress must the concrete supports apply to each end of the beam, if they are to keep the beam from expanding when the temperature rises to 42C? Assume that the distance between the concrete supports does not change as the temperature rises.

Recall that compressional stress = F/A and the magnitude of the compressional force that the concrete supports exert on each end of the steel beam is given by:

F = YA ( L/Lo)

where Y is Youngs Modulus YA ( L/Lo) Compressional stress = A = Y ( L/Lo) Substituting Lo from the Lo in L = Lo ( T To) (Y L) Compressional stress = [ L/(T - To)] = Y (T-To) =(2.0x1011N/m2)[12x10-6(C] -1(42C - 23C) = 4.6 x107N/m2 (Answer)
