Problem 8RQ

Distinguish between temperature and heat.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 8RQ Temperature is the level of hotness or coldness of a body. More heat contained in a body means it has higher temperature and less heat in a body means the same has lower temperature. Temperature is measured in Kelvin, Celsius and Fahrenheit units. Heat, on the other hand is a form of energy related to the motion of atoms and molecules in a body. Heat will be more if the atoms and molecules are moving fast in the material and will be less if they are not fast enough. Heat travels from a body at a higher temperature to a body at a lower temperature. Its unit of measurement is Joule.
