# When is thermal equilibrium achieved between two objects?

When is thermal equilibrium achieved between two objects? a. when thermal energy is no longer transferred b. when one objects is hotter than the other c. when both objects have the same temperature d. when the particles in one object have more kinetic energy

Is there an option for both A and C?

Thermal equilibrium can be described as the point when no thermal energy is being transferred between the two objects. In other words, the objects have the same temperature. Choices A and C are essentially synonymous in this context. Hope I could help.

The answer would be c. When both objects have the same temperature

Thermal equilibrium is achieved when two identical objects have the same temperature after contacting and exchanging energy.

Explanation:

By bringing two bodies into contact at a different temperature, the one with the highest temperature yields part of its energy to the one with the lowest temperature until its temperatures equalize. This is what we call "thermal equilibrium". In other words, thermal equilibrium is the state in which the temperatures of two bodies that initially had different temperatures are equalized. When the temperatures equalize, the heat flow is suspended, and this is how the equilibrium situation is reached.

Thermal equilibrium is achieved when two identical objects have the same temperature after contacting and exchanging energy.

5: A. Heat statement explains the kinetic theory of moving particles.

Explanation:

I just took the test and it was correct. I got a 100% from this answer.

Have a nice day 🙂

C) When both objects have the same temperature.

Hope this helps!

C) When both objects have the same temperature

Explanation:

took the quiz

I believe the correct answer from the choices listed above is option C. Thermal equilibrium is achieved between two objects when both objects have the same temperature. This is the condition under which two substances in physical contact with each other exchange no heat energy. Hope this answers the question.

when the temperatures of the two objects are equal

Explanation:

Thermal equilibrium is achieved between two objects when the temperatures of the two objects are equal. Heat flows from hot to cold objects. When the two objects attain equal temperatures, we say thermal equilibrium has been achieved

Based on the Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics, two systems are at equilibrium when there is no heat flow, q, between the systems.
Hello! Thermal equilibrium is reached between two objects when both have the same final heat value or temperature. Meaning when ice is dropped into water, and the ice melts, the ice and water mixture will get to thermal equilbrum when the temp of the water has stabilized and the ice added has completely melted and warmed up to the water temp so ice and water are now in thermal equilibrium.
Hope this helps you understand the concept. Any questions please just ask. Thank you!!
