[J1 Physics PMCians] Thermal Physics – What’s Cooking Here?
What we did in 2 hours:
We have begun our journey in the realm of Temperature & Thermal Physics. Here’s what we did in 2-hours!
1) We reviewed how the celsius scale is related to the kelvin scale.
2) We explored the usefulness of the equation pV = nRT, and also its cousin, pV=NkT, especially in graph sketching and calculations.
3) We ended the lesson by discussing the idea of Internal Energy, U, of a gas, which is the sum of its kinetic and potential energies of all the molecules in the gas.
