Q.11. The two ends of a metal rod are maintained at temperatures 100oC and 110oC. the rate of heat flow in the rod is found to be 4.0 J/s. If the ends are maintained at temperatures 200oC and 210oC, the rate of heat flow will be:    [2015]

A
Solution:
Here, ΔT1 = 110-100 = 10o C

As the rate of heat flow is directly proportional to the temperature difference and the temperature difference in both the cases is same i.e. 10o C. So, the same rate of heat will flow in the second case.
Hence,

## FAQs on NEET Previous Year Questions (2014-22): Thermal Properties of Matter - Physics Class 11

 1. What are the thermal properties of matter?
Ans. Thermal properties of matter refer to the characteristics or behaviors of a substance when it is subjected to changes in temperature. These properties include thermal expansion, specific heat capacity, thermal conductivity, and latent heat.
 2. What is thermal expansion?
Ans. Thermal expansion is the tendency of matter to expand or contract in response to changes in temperature. When a substance is heated, its particles gain energy and move more vigorously, causing the substance to expand. Conversely, when a substance is cooled, its particles lose energy and move less vigorously, leading to contraction.
 3. What is specific heat capacity?
Ans. Specific heat capacity is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of a unit mass of a substance by one degree Celsius. It is a measure of how effectively a substance can store heat. Different substances have different specific heat capacities, which determine their ability to absorb or release heat.
 4. What is thermal conductivity?
Ans. Thermal conductivity is the property of a material that determines its ability to conduct heat. It describes how easily heat can be transferred through a substance. Materials with high thermal conductivity, such as metals, are good conductors of heat, while materials with low thermal conductivity, such as insulators, are poor conductors.
 5. What is latent heat?
Ans. Latent heat is the heat energy absorbed or released during a phase change of a substance without a change in temperature. It is related to the energy required to break or form intermolecular bonds between particles. Examples of latent heat include the heat absorbed during the melting of ice or the heat released during the condensation of water vapor.
