I wish I knew. I've tried just about very different way of describing the location as I can, but it's not working.

Ok... I wasn't expecting that.

Anyway, as a consequence of that, I found out that Helium has a negative Joule-Thompson co-efficent.
That means that unlike other gases, when it expands, it heats up - unusual, and useful for launchers, I would think.

Hmm, now I'm wondering whether the Pamela mentioned on 27 is a real person, or whether the whole thing is just a riddle.

Sure... the answer is "He is in" then the chemical symbol of the last element on the list, for some reason I'm not entirely sure of.

Wouldn't that break the law of thermodynamics?!
Where does it get the energy of heating up from?

If its true what you are stating then I am wondering how this weird phenomenon works.

No wait, that was easy.

As a (slightly confusing) hint for those that are stuck (select): It's not the message linked to the image, but something else to do with it - but certainly not what it's showing.

Now at 26... Hmm, I think I know what it means, it doesn't like my answer. Oh well.


That hint was a bit more than slightly confusing... you used the pronoun "it"... what are you refering to? the pic or the text?

EDIT: any other hints or tips for #23?
The answer has something to do with the picture, but the answer isn't what is in the picture?

It only really occurs under adiabatic free expansion with constant enthalpy. Not quite what we're doing... but nonetheless it might have a small bearing on launcher effectiveness.

But as for an explanation - in a gas, particles are constantly hitting each other. During this short time, the kinetic energy (essentially heat) of the particles is stored in the energy of the collision.
With some gases with low Van der Walls forces (low intermolecular forces, like Helium has), when you increase the space between the particles, the particles spend less time colliding, and thus some of the energy that would have previously have been stored as energy in collisions is retained as kinetic energy.

Energy is still conserved, it's just energy from a source that you wouldn't otherwise notice.

In most gases, the expansion of the gas increases the potential energy, and for energy to be conserved, the kinetic energy of the particles is reduced, and thus the temperature.

@willard: The mouse-over text is a subtitle for the picture, rather than it's actual title. Does that help?

grrr 27...... making me mad any hints?????
...hint for 23... look at the picture from this point of view, what would some coffee shop dwelling "hippie" barrett wearer call that picture, if it were considered to be in the "contemporary" category
