f you spilled a cup of freshly brewed hot tea on yourself, you would he burned. If you spilled the same quantity of iced tea on yourself, you would not be burned. Explain.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

It is given that if we spill a cup of freshly brewed hot tea on our skin, we would be burned. If the same quantity of iced tea is spilled, why we won’t be burned should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Energy is the ability to do work or produce heat. The law of conservation of energy says that theenergy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be converted from one type to another. It is also called the first law of thermodynamics, according to which the energy of the universe is constant.

Explanation

If an entity is in thermal equilibrium with another entity, then both the objects are at the same temperature.

In the given problem, The hot tea is at a higher temperature than skin, i.e., the units in the hot tea have higher average kinetic energies than the particles of the surface of the skin. Hence the hot tea is not in thermal equilibrium with the skin...
