Clearly distinguish among temperature, heat, and internal energy.

To determine
The difference between temperature, heat, and internal energy.


Heat, temperature and internal energy are three different thermodynamic quantities.

Temperature is used to measure of average kinetic energy of the particles of the system.

When there is a temperature gradient between two systems, energy is transferred in the form of heat from the higher temperature to the lower temperature.

Internal energy of a system is the total energy which is contained within the system. From first law of thermodynamics, the internal energy is given by,
