Heat always flows spontaneously from an object with a higher temperature to an object with a lower temperature. Is this the same thing as saying that heat always flows from an object with a greater internal energy to one with a lower internal energy? Explain.
Step 1 of 3
Temperature is average kinetic energy of the particles in the object.internal energy is total energy of the particles in the object.these are not same then,it is possible to have objects at high temperature at low internal energy and other object at low temperature.but with high internal energy by virtue of its large size energy will flow from the object with highest internal energy to one with a lowest average internal energy. Or Internal energy depends on two factors both number of molecules of a material and the temperature of the material.heat will flow naturally from the object with higher temperature to the with lower temperature.the object with higher temperature may or may not be with higher internal energy.
