Heat Capacities

Some articles on heat capacities, heat:

Spin Isomers Of Hydrogen - Thermal Properties
... The molar rotational energies and heat capacities are derived for any of these cases from Plots shown here are molar rotational energies and heat capacities for ortho- and parahydrogen, and the "normal ... additional refrigeration equipment to absorb the heat that the orthohydrogen fraction will release as it spontaneously converts into parahydrogen ... If orthohydrogen is not removed from liquid hydrogen, the heat released during its decay can boil off as much as 50% of the original liquid ...
Hermann Franz Moritz Kopp
... Kopp, in studying heat capacities, found "that the molecular heat capacity of a solid compound is the sum of the atomic heat capacities of the elements composing it the elements having atomic ...
Volumetric Heat Capacity
... Volumetric heat capacity (VHC), also termed volume-specific heat capacity, describes the ability of a given volume of a substance to store internal energy while undergoing a given temperature change ... It is different from specific heat capacity in that the VHC is a 'per unit volume' measure of the relationship between thermal energy and temperature of a material ... If given a specific heat value of a substance, one can convert it to the VHC by multiplying the specific heat by the density of the substance ...
Theory of Heat Capacity - Solid Phase
... was discovered empirically, states that the mole-specific heat capacity assumes the value 3 R ... for solid metallic chemical elements at room temperature, molar heat capacities range from about 2.8 R to 3.4 R ... At the higher end of possible heat capacities, heat capacity may exceed R by modest amounts, due to contributions from anharmonic vibrations in solids, and sometimes a modest contribution from conduction electrons ...
Theory of Heat Capacity - Diatomic Gas
... will contribute R/2 in the total molar heat capacity of the gas ... vibrational mode will contribute to the total molar heat capacity, however ... and kinetic components will contribute R/2 to the total molar heat capacity of the gas ...

Famous quotes containing the words capacities and/or heat:

    The fox, he felt, had never seen his past disposed of like a fall of water. He had never measured off his day in moments: another—another—another. But now, thrown down so deeply in himself, into the darkness of the well, surprised by pain and hunger, might he not revert to an earlier condition, regain capacities which formerly were useless to him, pass from animal to Henry, become human in his prison, X his days, count, wait, listen for another—another—another—another?
    William Gass (b. 1924)

    Why does man freeze to death trying to reach the North Pole? Why does man drive himself to suffer the steam and heat of the Amazon? Why does he stagger his mind with the mathematics of the sky? Once the question mark has arisen in the human brain the answer must be found, if it takes a hundred years. A thousand years.
    Walter Reisch (1903–1963)
