    and the question is....

  • Physics -

    (a) Find the final temperature of the blocks

    Find the heat transferred between them.

    (b) Find the entropy change of each block during the time interval in which the first joule of heat flows.

    Delta S1=
    Delta S2=

    (c) Estimate the entropy change of each block after it has reached thermal equilibrium. Use each block's average temperature during the process in calculating the estimated values of ΔS.
