A 30-kg iron block and a 40-kg copper block, both initially at 808C, are dropped into a large lake at 158C. Thermal equilibrium is established after a while as a result of heat transfer between the blocks and the lake water. Determine the total entropy change for this process.

### Answers

Explanation:

The given data is as follows.

= 30 kg, = 40 kg

=

=

Now, we will calculate the heat energy as follows.

=

= 877.5 kJ

and,

=

= 1003.6 kJ

=

= 6.531 kJ/K

=

= -2.747 kJ/K

=

= -3.142 kJ/K

Now, we will calculate the total entropy as follows.

= 6.531 kJ/K - 2.747 kJ/K - 3.142 kJ/K

= 0.64 kJ/K

thus, we can conclude that the total entropy change for this process is 0.64 kJ/K.
