Water falls from a height of 50m. Calculate the rise in the temperature of water when it strikes the bottom.

G=10ms-2

C=4200J/Kg°C

Expert Answer:

let mass=m kg

g=10, h=50, c=4200

rise in temp=t

potential energy at ht 50m= gain in heat enegy on reaching the ground

mgh=mct

gh=ct

10*50=4200t

t=500/4200                     ANS
