Physics
A snake is sunning itself on a rock. (a) If the snake is 0.5 m long, what is the approximate amount of radiation it absorbs from the Sun in 11 min? (Assume the snake has a cylindrical shape and ignore both ends, a radius of 0.03 m, and a mass of 2.1 kg. Assume also that the em...

Physics
The intensity of sunlight at the the top of the Earth's atmosphere is about 1350 W/m2. (The intensity at the surface of the Earth is somewhat smaller due to absorption and reflection by the atmosphere.) What is the total power emitted by the Sun?

Physics
Use the exact values you enter in previous answer(s) to make later calculation(s). Energy-efficient windows are constructed with two panes of glass separated by an air gap (see figure below). In a typical window of this type, the air gap makes a huge difference in the rate of ...

A rectangular aluminum plate has an area of 0.41 m2 at 23°C. If it is heated until its area has increased by 4.4 10-6 m2, what is the final temperature of the plate? °C

Physics
Your swimming pool is square and 4.9 m on a side. It is 3.9 m deep in the morning. If the temperature changes by 44°C during the afternoon, how much does the depth of the water increase?

Physics
If you combine 34 kg of ice at 0°C with 80 kg of steam at 100°C, what is the final temperature of the system? °C

Physics
You drop 378 g of solid ice at −35°C into a bucket of water (1,200 g) at 45°C. Eventually, the ice all melts, and the entire system comes into thermal equilibrium. Find the final temperature of the system.

Physics
An ice cube of volume 17.7 cm3 is initially at a temperature of -19.3°C. How much heat is required to convert this ice cube into steam?

Physics
How much heat is required to raise the temperature of a 4.3-kg block of steel by 48 K? (The specific heat of this steel is 450 J/kg · K.)

Physics
A tank of water sits at the edge of a table of height 1.4 m. The tank springs a very small leak at its base, and water sprays out a distance of 1.2 m from the edge of the table. What is the water level h in the tank? (Assume the tank is open to the air at the top.)
