When a hot object is placed in contact with a cooler object, the hot object warms the cooler one. Can you say it loses as much temperature as the cooler one gains? Defend your answer.

    It loses the same amount of heat. Now temperature change depends on the thermal capacity, the one with the greater thermal capacity will lose less temperature.

    Heat= thermal capacity*deltatemp
