One kg of a diatomic gas is at a pressure of 8 × 10^{4}N/m^{2}. The density of the gas is 4kg/m^{3}. What is the energy of the gas due to its thermal motion?
Statement 1 : The temperature dependence of resistance is usually given as R = R_{o} (1 + α Δt). The resistance of a wire changes from 100Ω to 150Ω when its temperature is increased from 27°C to 227°C. This implies that α = 2.5 × 10^{–3}/°C.
Statement 2 : R = R_{o} (1+ α Δt) is valid only when the change in the temperature ΔT is small and ΔR = (R – R_{0}) << R_{o}.
(The relation R = R_{0} (1 +α Δt) is valid for small values of Δt and R_{0} is resistance at 0°C and also (R – R_{0}) should be much smaller than R_{0}. So, statement (1) is wrong but statement (2) is correct.
