PHY C11: Temperature

This one is mainly definitions & measurements:

  • What is Temperature?
  • Thermometers
    • Thermometric Substances
    • Thermometric Properties
  • Empirical Calibration of a Thermometer
  • Absolute Scale / Thermodynamic Scale
  • Types of Thermometers

PHY C10: Ideal Gases (Microscopic View)

Now let’s look on the scale of atoms & molecules, in a more in-depth QUANTITATIVE explanation and derivation of these equations:

  • Equation for Gas Pressure
    • Pressure in terms of density
  • Kinetic Energy of a Gas Particle
  • Relationship between Kinetic Energy & Temperature
  • RMS Speed of Gas Particles

This is a long & (slightly boring) one, so stay strong!
