A rod made from a particular alloy is heated from 22.0°C to the boiling point of water. Its length increases by 8.15 10-4m. The rod is then cooled from 22.0°C to the freezing point of water. By how much does the rod shrink?
At a fabrication plant, a hot metal forging has a mass of 74 kg and a specific heat capacity of 430 J/(kg·C°). To harden it, the forging is quenched by immersion in 710 kg of oil that has a temperature of 32°C and a specific heat capacity of 3000 J/(kg·C°). The final temperature of the oil and forging at thermal equilibrium is 47°C. Assuming that heat flows only between the forging and the oil, determine the initial temperature of the forging.
