A rope is pulled, increasing its tension. The work done pulling the rope is 23 J. While being pulled, the rope is also heated by the hand of the person pulling on it, by a net of 1.5 J. What is the change in the rope’s internal energy? Give your answer to one decimal place.
A cylinder contains a gas that receives net heating of 15 J. While the gas is heated, the lid of the cylinder is moved upward through a distance of 15 cm, as shown in the diagram. The mass of the lid is 1.45 kg. How much does the internal energy of the gas increase during the heating? Give your answer to the nearest joule.
A spring is compressed, increasing its tension. The work done compressing the spring is 1.32 J. While being compressed, the spring heats the hand of the person pushing on it by a net of 0.15 J. What is the change in the spring’s internal energy?
