Textbook Problem

Two objects with different sizes, masses, and temperatures are placed in thermal contact. Choose the best answer: Energy travels (a) from the larger object to the smaller object (b) from the object with more mass to the one with less mass (c) from the object at higher temperature to the object at lower temperature.

To determine
The energy transfer between two objects.

Explanation

When two objects come in contact with each other, there exist a temperature difference between them. As a result, energy gets transferred between the two.

Conclusion:

The energy is transferred in such a way that the temperature of the hotter object decreases and that of the colder object increases. Hence, energy is transferred from a high temperature to a low temperature...
