Concept Introduction:

Heat and temperature both are related with each other. Temperature only measures the hotness and coldness of the object whereas heat generally means high temperature.


Temperature is a measure of hotness and coldness of the object which is expressed in terms of scales like Kelvin, Celsius etc. Temperature is also measures the random motion of the components of the substance. For an example: molecules of water are move faster in hot water due to high temperature and water molecules move slowly in cold water due to low temperature. Thus, temperature is not energy.

Heat is defined as the total amount of energy which is possessed by the molecules and it is transferred from one body to another as the result of the temperature difference...
