Mechanical Equivalent of Heat

Joule's apparatus for measuring the mechanical equivalent of heat.

“In 1845, the English physicist James Joule wrote a paper on the mechanical equiv
alent of
heat for the British Association meeting in Cambridge. In this work, he reported his best
-
known experiment, in which the work released through the action of a "weight falling
through a height" was used to turn a paddle
-
wheel in an insulated barrel

of water.

In this experiment, the friction and agitation of the paddle
-
wheel on the body of water
caused heat to be generated which, in turn, increased the temperature of wat
er. Both the
temperature change ∆T of the water and the height of the fall ∆h of the weight mg were
recorded. Using these values, Joule was able to determine the mechanical equivalent of
heat.”

Mechanical Energy

A 10.0 kg weight drops 2.0 m. What is
the potential energy of the weight before
if falls?

How much work does the falling weight
do?

If the energy transfer is 100% efficient,
what is the kinetic energy of the paddle
wheel?

Heat

The barrel of water contains 20.0 g of
water, which has a specific heat of 1.0
cal/g ºC. The water temperature
increases by 2.35 ºC. How many calories
of heat were transferred to the water?
