A planet of radius r and mass M has a homogeneous atmosphere (density independent of height). The atmosphere has a height h and the atmosphere’s gas has a molar mass μ.
What is the surface temperature of the planet?
A thermometer is placed in a test-tube of liquid. The temperature of the liquid is recorded every half minute.
What is the melting point of the substance?
When ice melts, it changes from a solid to a liquid, the process is called melting and occurs at a temperature called the melting point.
A barometer shows that an air pressure inside of a rocket before the launch is 10^5 pa. What is the change of air temperature inside the rocket during its launch, if the air pressure is increased to 1.2*10^5 pa ?
The rocket accelerates at a rate of 10 m/s^2.
Temperature is a macroscopic quantity. It is meant that temperature is a property of a collection of particles.
