Thermal Contact

Thermal contact:

  • Two objects are in thermal contact if energy can be exchanged between them.
  • Two way process


Thermal Equilibrium(bodies at same temp):

  • Two objects are in thermal equilibrium if there is no net exchange of energy when they are placed in thermal contact.
  • Heat transfer will continue until thermal equilibrium is achieved.


Heat: The exchange of energy between two object because of differences in their temperatures.
