Probably - not quite sure where you're seeing them

Usually calculations.

2. This...

Equating the two, as they're in thermal equilibrium gives:

Haha! That's so odd!

Maybe the platform you're viewing it on doesn't support LaTex?

Here's what it should look like!

5. Well thats weird. I was sooooo confused then i thought u might ve made smiley face might be a symbol to represent something.

I can understand your confusion now!

I wouldn't recommend using smileys in your proofs in the exam

In thermal equilibrium the cola reaches the same final temperature as the glass.

In other words, the rise in thermal energy of the cola equals the fall in thermal energy of the glass.

There is no net transfer of thermal energy beyond this point.

Rise in thermal energy of the cola as it warms up from 3.0 degrees Celsius to the final temperature:

Loss of thermal energy of the glass as it cools from 30 degrees Celsius to the final temperature:

Equating the two, as they're in thermal equilibrium gives:

Ahh I see. So they fall and raise by the same temperature. That's the part that confused me. As I figured that they'd fall and raise by a different amount, not the same amount of . As cola has a higher specific heat capacity, so I'd figure that'd warm up slower, due to requiring more energy. And the glass cool faster, due to less energy being required to change its temperature.

Well they may lose and gain different amounts of thermal energy, but eventually they both reach a final temperature where there is no net transfer of thermal energy between the cola and the glass.

If you think about it, the cola rises in temperature by a much smaller amount than the glass cools in temperature.

10. Hi,

Do they expect us to know that the mass of a proton is 1.00728u because they just seem to use that in mark schemes but when I work it out with the data sheet I get 1,673x10^-27 / 1.661x10^-27 = 1.007224564. Can anybody explain how/where they get it from?

Thanks

Its in the data sheet look carefully in the list of values on first page then proton rest mass

Sounds sensible. I have too many exams around then to do that

Me too. This exams seems ages away compared to PHYA4 lol.
