More Joemodynamics at Corny's still arguing heat = temperature:
The textbook definitions of heat and temperature are posted.
|Heat describes the transfer of thermal energy between molecules within a system and is measured in Joules. Heat measures how energy moves or flows. An object can gain heat or lose heat, but it cannot have heat. Heat is a measure of change, never a property possessed by an object or system. |
Temperature describes the average kinetic energy of molecules within a material or system and is measured in Celsius (°C), Kelvin(K), Fahrenheit (°F), or Rankine ®. It is a measurable physical property of an object. Other measurable physical properties include velocity, mass, and density, to name a few.
Joemodynamics response: NUH-UH!
| Textbook: "An object can gain heat or lose heat, but it cannot have heat."|
Joke: "If an object gains heat it has heat. If an object loses heat it had heat to lose."
