Question

What characteristics determine how easily two substances change temperature? Check all that apply.
volume of the two substances in contact
amount of time the two substances are in contact
area in contact between the two substances
specific heat of the material that makes up the substances
density of the two substances in contact

2 Answer

  • the characteristics that determine how easily two substances change temperature are :
    - Amount of time the substance are in contact (the more time they're in contact, the more likely it is)
    - area in contact between the two substance
    - specific heat of the material that makes up the substances
  • Answer;

    • Amount of time the two substances are in contact
    • Area in contact between the two substances
    • Specific heat of the material that makes up the substances

    Explanation;

    • The change in temperature of a substance is caused by heat energy. The change in temperature will depend on factors such as mass of the substance, the type of material it is made from, the time taken , specific heat of the material that makes the substance, and also the area of contact.
    • The amount of time the two substances are in contact affect the change in temperature such that if the two bodies are in contact for a longer time then a bigger change in temperature will be observed.
    • Specific heat capacity also determines the change in temperature that will be observed, such that a substance with a bigger specific heat capacity will record a small change in temperature.
