Worksheet: Heat in Mixed Systems
In this worksheet, we will practice calculating masses, temperature changes, and specific heats in systems containing two or more phases or materials.
A steel fuel tank contains 14.0 L of diesel oil with a density of 0.832 g/cm3. The heat capacity of the steel is 0.502 J/g⋅K, while that of the diesel oil is 2.05 J/g⋅K.
The tank is cooled from to , releasing 1.67 MJ of energy. To the nearest kg, what is the mass of the steel tank when empty?
