radius of curvature, classical thermodynamics, blunt definition: What exactly is line tension? I found lots of articles, but not a blunt definition. That depends on the context in how it is used. In general, and in thermodynamics, it would deal with the orderly alignment of molecules. And do colloids follow...

Thermodynamics: Heat Loss, cold winter night, water jets
cold winter night, water jets, heat uptake: Hi Jeff, On a cold winter night the jets alone will not supply sufficient kinetic energy to overcome the heat losses from the surface. The heat uptake from a pump is typically less than 80% of the rated wattage (V x A) of the pump and will be low when compared...

Thermodynamics: heat, teaching physical science, moth balls
teaching physical science, moth balls, elements and compounds: Mr. jolay, thank you so much for your response. Teaching in Paraguay, sounds like fun. Now, why did I ever do that? I assume you are fluent in Spanish (me too). When you were at the University of alabama, did you ever meet Elena Sara Lobl, Ph.D....

Thermodynamics: POTENTIAL ENERGY OF MOLECULES, definition of activation energy, chemical kinetics
definition of activation energy, chemical kinetics, exact definition: Shahul, Good follow up. However, potential energy is only a relative term. Hence, potential energy is relative to a specific atom or molecule at a specific temperature (or energy). Activation energy is simply the energy needed to change a state or...

Thermodynamics: steam turbine, mass flow rate, steam turbine
mass flow rate, steam turbine, mass transfer: Keith, I am away from my office today. I can tell you that there are equations that relate mass flow rate with wpressure and temperature. This subject overlaps thermodynamics and fluid dynamics and mass transfer. Locate a basic book on mass transfer...

Thermodynamics: Thermodynamics, hdpe plastic, temperature rise
hdpe plastic, temperature rise, thermodynamics: Hi Naidoo The standard way to tackle this is to carry out two runs under identical conditions on each collector. Run 1. Copper Measure the themperature of the 6 kg of water when stirred X c. Run for one hour and measure the new temperature Y c....

Thermodynamics: thermodynamics, relative volume, luke luke
relative volume, luke luke, system of equations: Luke, This question is a little more complex than the earlier one. But it is still easy. Use the same formulae for each side and then write them as a system of equations regarding relative volume and relative temperature and relative pressure. Hint,...

Thermodynamics: Cooling system, cold sea water, heat balance
cold sea water, heat balance, propellor: Great question. this is a heat loss question. Is the sea water flowing/ You would do better with a radiator (small) and a propellor to flow the water. I am out of the office now and have my books in the office. i will not return for about ten days. ...

Thermodynamics: Copper Toxicity, copper toxicity, heat conductor
copper toxicity, heat conductor, stainless steel 304: I am not sure how helpful I can be. Stainless Steel 304 or 316 is extremely stable under heat. Copper is a better heat conductor. Be sure the copper is pure and of high grade. Respectfully, Kenneth Alvin Solomon, Ph.D. P.E., Post Ph.D. www.irsa.us...

Thermodynamics: Nuclear tower shape?
Thermodynamics: Nuclear tower shape?

Thermodynamics: Gravity, www.irsa.us, bio-mechanics
www.irsa.us, bio-mechanics, tghermodynamics: Hi Julian, Gravity does not affect boiling point. Altitude and thus reducing air pressure at high altitude lowers boiling point. Higher gravity usually means more dense altitude, hence, higher boiling point. respectfully, kenneth A. Solomon, Ph.D.,...

Thermodynamics: Milk, whole milk, free milk
whole milk, free milk, heat capacity: Generally, the lower the density of the milk, the lower its heat capacity to retain heat, and the faster it will cool. Your reasoning is valid. You answered your own question!!!! Respectfully, kenneth A. solomon, Ph.D., P.E., Post Ph.D. www.irsa.u...

Thermodynamics: Nichrome wire melting temp?, clay material, slow fire
clay material, slow fire, melting temperature: Hi Sharon, Ni-chrome wire typically melts at 2550 F and so would not melt at 2170F. The melting temperature is independent of the gauge so you can use any gauge. You should bear in mind that the wire will expand (become longer) as it heats up and shrink...

Thermodynamics: Nuclear tower shape?, cooling towers, nuclear reactors
cooling towers, nuclear reactors, heat transfer: Chris, Your question is fantastically good!!!!!! I do not want to brag, but my Ph.D. is in nuclear science and this is a perfect question for me. I will assume you are an undergraduate in a science program in college. I will respond at that level....

Thermodynamics: Question about Purely-Radiant Cooling?, www.irsa.us, bio-mechanics
www.irsa.us, bio-mechanics, thermodynamics: Hi Green, Why do you wish to cool with only radiant heat transfer? Your efficiency would increase as you use convective cooling. Conduction cooling would have a minimal impact. I am not at all sure why the three layers you speak of offer any added...

Thermodynamics: steam properties, steam, thermodynamics
steam, thermodynamics, physics: Michael, Good question. Steam, as most gases, are governed by the equation of PV = NRT. P is absolute pressure, T is absolute Temperature, V is volume, n is number of moles of steam, and R is a constant. As T increases, so does P. the higher the P,...

Thermodynamics: Thermodynamics, qualified electrician, coke bottles
qualified electrician, coke bottles, electronic switch: Hi Rick Kinda tough this one. Hot tubs generally run on a thermostat to control the tub temperature (that is an electronic switch which cuts the power when the water is at temperature) . If you put cold in (e.g. ice) then the heater stays on until the temperature...

Thermodynamics: thermodynamics, www.irsa.us, bio-mechanics
www.irsa.us, bio-mechanics, thermodynamics: Great question. The clouds act more or less like a blanket. Heat enters throgh the clouds and the clouds prevent much of that heat to escape. Please provide feedback. Respectfylly, Kenneth Alvin Solomon, Ph.D., P.E., Post Ph.D. www.irsa.u...

Thermodynamics: thermodynamics, isotherm, thermodynamics
isotherm, thermodynamics, straight line: 1) You re plotting PV = RT where R is the gas constant. At constant T, you get a curve of V vs. P. Obviously, if you increase T you get a new isotherm which cannot cross the old one. 2) Here you re plotting P = (1/V)RT and again you have an isotherm....

Thermodynamics: thermodynamics and fossil fuels, fossil fuel energy, energy doesn
fossil fuel energy, energy doesn, energy from the sun: If you think of the biosphere as the whole Earth, then changing the chemical energy of the oil and coal into heat energy doesn t change the total energy of the system. However, we re not a closed system since we receive energy from the sun and radiate some...
