It is a common experience that heat is transferred from one place to another. For example, the handle of a metal frying pan kept on fire, becomes hot after some time. The flow of heat from one place to another is known as the transmission of heat. There are three methods of heat transfer such as conduction, convection and radiation.

## JEE Advanced Previous Year Questions on Calorimetry and Heat Transfer

**Question 1) A bullet of mass 5 g, travelling with a speed of 210 m/s strikes a fixed wooden target. One half of its kinetic energy is converted into heat in the bullet while the other half is converted into heat in the wood. The rise of temperature of the bullet if the specific heat of its material is 0.030 cal/gΒ°C (1 cal = 4.2 x 10 ^{7} ergs) close to:**

(A) 87.5Β°C

(B) 83.3Β°C

(C)119.2Β°C

(D) 38.4Β°C

**Answer: (A) 87.5Β°C**

**Solution:**

According to the question, one half of its kinetic energy is converted into heat in the wood.

**(Β½)**mv^{2} Γ(Β½) = msΞT

β ΞT= v^{2}/4s = (210 Γ 210)/(4 Γ 4.2 Γ 0.3 Γ 1000) = 87.5Β°C

**Question 2) The specific heat of water = 4200 J/Kg/K and the latent heat of ice = 3.4 Γ 10 ^{5} J/kg. 100 grams of ice at 0Β°C is placed in 200 g of water at 25Β°C. The amount of ice that will melt as the temperature of the water reaches 0Β°C is close to (in grams):**

(A) 61.7

(B) 63.8

(C)69.3

(D) 64.6

**Answer: (A) 61.7**

**Solution:**

Here ice melts due to water.

Let the amount of ice that melts = m_{ice}

m_{w}s_{w}ΞΞΈ = m_{ice}L_{ice}

m_{ice} = m_{w}s_{w}ΞΞΈ/L_{ice}

= (0.2 Γ 4200 Γ 25)/(3.4 Γ 10^{5})

= 0.0617 kg = 61.7 g

**Question 3) M grams of steam at 1000C is mixed with 200 g of ice at its melting point in a thermally insulated container. If it produces liquid water at 40Β°C(heat of vaporization of water is 540 cal/g and heat of fusion of ice is 80 cal/g], the value of M is**

**Answer: 40**

**Solution:**

Using the principle of calorimetry

M_{ice}L_{f }+ m_{ice}(40 – 0)C_{w} = m_{stream}L_{v} + m_{stream}(100 – 40)C_{w}

β M(540) + M Γ 1 Γ (100 – 40) – 200 Γ 80 + 200 Γ 1 Γ 40

β 600 M = 24000

β M = 40 g

**Question 4) When M _{1} gram of ice at 10Β°C (specific heat = 0.5 cal g^{-10}C^{-1}) is added to M_{2} gram of water at 50Β°C, finally no ice is left and the water is at 0Β°C. The value of latent heat of ice, in calg^{-1} is:**

(A) (50M_{2}/M_{1}) – 5

(B) (5M_{1}/M_{2}) – 50

(C)(50M_{2}/M_{1})

(D) (5M_{2}/M_{1}) – 5

**Answer: (A) (50M _{2}/M_{1}) – 5**

**Solution:**

Using energy conservation

E_{released by water} = E_{used by ice}

β M_{2}S_{w}(ΞT)_{water} = M_{1}S_{ice}(ΞT)_{ice }+ M_{1}L_{fusion}

M_{2 }(1)(50) = M1(Β½)(10) +M_{1}L_{fusion}

50M_{2} – 5M_{1} = M_{1}L_{fusion}

L_{f} = (50M_{2}/M_{1}) – 5

**Question 5) A metal rod AB of length 10x has its one end A in ice at 0Β°C and the other end B in water at 100 ^{0}C. If a point P on the rod is maintained at 400Β°C, then it is found that equal amounts of water and ice evaporate and melt per unit time. The latent heat of evaporation of water is 540 cal/g and latent heat of melting of ice is 80 cal/g. If the point P is at a distance of Ξ»x from the ice end A, find the value of Ξ».[ Neglect any heat loss to the surrounding]Β **

**Answer: 9**

**Solution:**

For heat flow from P to 0

For heat flow from P to B

(given , dm_{1}/dt = dm_{2}/dt)

Dividing (1) and (2) and solving, we get Ξ» = 9

**Question 6) Two spherical bodies A (radius 6 cm) and B (radius 18 cm) are at temperatures T _{1 }and T_{2}, respectively. The maximum intensity in the emission spectrum of A is at 500 nm and that of B is at 1500 nm. Considering them to be black bodies, what will be the ratio of the rate of total energy radiated by A to that of B?**

**Answer: 9**

**Solution:**

As per Weinβs displacement law

As per Stefanβs law,

**Question 7) Two spherical stars A and B emit blackbody radiation. The radius of A is 400 times that of B and A emits 10 ^{4} times the power emitted from B. The ratio Ξ»_{A}/Ξ»_{B} of their wavelengths Ξ»_{A }and Ξ»_{B }at which the peaks occur in their respective radiation curves is**

**Answer: 2**

**Solution:**

According to Weinβs displacement law

Ξ»_{mA}T_{A} = Ξ»_{mB}T_{B}

Ratio of energy radiated per unit time

β Ξ»_{A}/Ξ»_{B} = 2

**Question 8) Ice at -20Β°C is added to 50 g of water at 40Β°C. When the temperature of the mixture reaches 0Β°C, it is found that 20 g of ice is still unmelted. The amount of ice added to the water was close to**

**(Specific heat of water = 4.2 J/g/Β°C**

**Specific heat of ice = 2.1 J/g/Β°C**

**Heat of fusion of water at 0Β°C = 334 J/g)**

(A) 50 g

(B) 100 g

(C) 60 g

(D) 40 g

**Answer: (D) 40 g**

**Solution:**

Let m gram of ice be added

From principle of calorimeter

Heat gained by ice = Heat lost by water

20 Γ 2.1 Γ m + (m – 20) Γ 334 = 50 Γ 4.2 Γ 40

376m = 8400 + 6680

m = 40.1

(A) 85Β°C

(B) 60Β°C

(C) 80Β°C

(D) 70Β°C

**Answer: (C) 80Β°C**

**Solution:**

**Question 10) A copper ball of mass 100 gm is at a temperature T. It is dropped in a copper calorimeter of mass 100 gm, filled with 170 gm of water at room temperature. Subsequently, the temperature of the system is found to be 75Β°C. T is given by**

**(Given: room temperature = 30Β°C, specific heat of copper = 0.1 cal/gmΒ°C)**

(A) 1250Β°C

(B) 825Β°C

(C) 800Β°C

(D) 885Β°C

**Answer: (D) 885Β°C**

**Solution:**

According to the principle of calorimetry

Heat lost = Heat gain

100 Γ 0.1(T – 75) = (100 Γ 0.1 Γ 45) + (170 Γ 1 Γ 45)

10T – 750 = 450 + 7650 = 8100

β T – 75 = 810

T = 885Β°C
