Example text

Put your face near it, but stay far enough away to avoid the downwash of cooled air. This way you cannot be cooled by convection and, because the air between you and the freezer is a ﬁne insulator, you cannot be cooled by conduction. Still your face will feel cooler. The reason is that you radiate heat directly into the cold region and it radiates very little heat to you. Consequently, your face cools perceptibly. 1–1000 µm The electromagnetic spectrum. Thermal radiation occurs in a range of the electromagnetic spectrum of energy emission.

2 Verify eqn. 15). 3 q = 5000 W/m2 in a 1 cm slab and T = 140◦ C on the cold side. 5 % carbon) • Ice • Spruce • Insulation (85 % magnesia) • Silica aerogel Indicate which situations would be unreasonable and why. 4 Explain in words why the heat diﬀusion equation, eqn. 1). 5 A 1 m rod of pure copper 1 cm2 in cross section connects a 200◦ C thermal reservoir with a 0◦ C thermal reservoir. The system has already reached steady state. What are the rates of change of entropy of (a) the ﬁrst reservoir, (b) the second reservoir, (c) the rod, and (d) the whole universe, as a result of the process?
