A 10 Kw Drilling Machine is Used to Drill a Bore in a Small Aluminium Block of Mass 8.0 Kg. How Much is the Rise in Temperature of the Block in 2.5 Minutes, Assuming 50% of Power is Used up in Heating the Machine Itself Or Lost to the Surroundings - CBSE (Science) Class 11 - Physics

Question

A 10 kW drilling machine is used to drill a bore in a small aluminium block of mass 8.0 kg. How much is the rise in temperature of the block in 2.5 minutes, assuming 50% of power is used up in heating the machine itself or lost to the surroundings Specific heat of aluminium = 0.91 J g–1 K–1

Solution 1

Power of the drilling machine, P = 10 kW = 10 × 10W

Mass of the aluminum block, m = 8.0 kg = 8 × 103 g

Time for which the machine is used, t = 2.5 min = 2.5 × 60 = 150 s

Specific heat of aluminium, c = 0.91 J g–1 K–1

Rise in the temperature of the block after drilling = δT

Total energy of the drilling machine = Pt

= 10 × 10× 150

= 1.5 × 106 J

It is given that only 50% of the power is useful.

Useful energy, triangle Q = 50/100 xx 1.5 xx 10^6 = 7.5xx10^5 J

But triangle Q = mctriangle T

:. triangle T =  (triangle Q)/"mc"

= (7.5 xx 10^5)/(8xx10^3xx0.91)

= 103 ^@C

Therefore, in 2.5 minutes of drilling, the rise in the temperature of the block is 103°C.

Solution 2

Power = 10 kW = 104 W

Mass, m=8.0 kg = 8 x 103 g

Rise in temperature, triangle T =?

Time, t = 2.5 min = 2.5 xx 60 = 150 s

Specific heat, C = 0.91 Jg^(-1) K^(-1)

Total energy =  Power x Time  = 10^4 xx 150 J

=15 xx 10^5 J

As 50% of energy is lost

∴Thermal energy available

triangle Q =  1/2 xx 15 xx 10^5 = 7.5 xx 10^5 J

Since triangle Q = mctrangle T

:.triangle T = triangleQ/mc = (7.5xx20^5)/(8xx10^3xx0.91) = 103^@C

Is there an error in this question or solution?
