Chapter 14 - Heat - Misconceptual Questions: 10

Answer

Choice D.

Work Step by Step

We assume that no other heat-exchanging objects are involved. The heat given off by the hotter object equals the heat absorbed by the colder object. Because the objects have the same specific heat, equation 14-2 shows that the heat transfer is proportional to the mass of each object multiplied by its own change in temperature. The object with the smaller mass must undergo the larger temperature change.
