0.5 moles of an ideal gas at constant temperature 27C kept inside a cylinder of length L and cross-section area A closed by a massless piston.
The cylinder is attached with a conducting rod of length L, cross-section area (19)m2 and thermal conductivity k, whose other end is maintained at 0C. If piston is moved such that rate of heat flow through the conducing rod is constant then velocity of piston when it is at height L2 from the bottom of cylinder is:

An ideal monatomic gas is confined in a cylinder by a spring - loaded Piston of cross - section 8.0×103m2.Initially the gas is at 300 K and occupies a volume of 2.4×103m3 and the spring is in its relaxed state. The gas is heated by a small heater until the piston moves slowly by 0.1 m. Calculate the final temperature of the gas. The force constant of the spring is 8000 N/m, and the atmospheric pressure is 1.0×105N/m2. The cylinder and the Piston are thermally insulated. The piston and the spring are massless and there is no friction between the piston and the cylinder. Neglect any heat - loss through the lead wires of the heater. The heat capacity of the heater coil is negligible.

A rod of length L and uniform cross-sectional area has varying thermal conductivity which changes linearly from 2K at end B to K at the other end A. The ends A and B of the rod are maintained at constant temperature 100C and 0C, respectively. At steady state, the graph of temperature : T=T(x) where x= distance from end A will be

A cylinder of cross section area A has two pistons of negligible mass separated by distance l loaded with spring of negligible mass. An ideal gas at temperature T1 is in the cylinder when the springs are relaxed. When the gas is heated by some means, its temperature becomes T2 and the springs get compressed by l/2 each. If P0 is atmospheric pressure and spring constant k=2P0Al, then the ratio of T2 and T1 is

The left end of a copper rod (length = 20 cm, area of cross section = 0.20 cm2) is maintained at 20°C and the right end is maintained at 80°C. Neglecting any loss of heat through radiation, find (a) the temperature at a point 11 cm from the left end and (b) the heat current through the rod. Thermal conductivity of copper = 385 W m−1°C−1.
