Covers the study of (mostly homogeneous) macroscopic systems from a heat/energy/entropy point of view. Consider also using tag: [statistical-mechanics].

So why is the gas constant in $C=3R/M$? How does this relate to the specific heat capacity of a solid element?

I am fairly new to the thermodynamics topic, I have been introduced that as the temperature of a particle increases, so does the speed of the particle; it moves faster. However, I never been told how …

Lead has 207 amu and 125j/kg/c while copper has 63 amu and 376 j/kg/c, why is that? So if energy is stored in the motion of the particles, heavier particles should move slower and therefore wouldn't t …

So i did an experiment which requires me to calculate the specific heat capacity of copper. To do that i equate the quantity of heat loss by copper and quantity of heat gained by water. (heated copper …

Do electrons contribute to the overall specific heat capacity? Please explain why and why not. I researched for a bit and most of them said mostly phonons contribute to the specific heat but never men …

So on a macroscopic level, there is physical contact and the heat energy is being transferred from the higher temp. to lower temp. But what about in a microscopic level, whats going on? As far as i …
