how can two bodies having the same quantity of heat differ in their temperature

Expert Answer:

It is due to the different amount of the two bodies, and different heat capacities. For example, if we add 4.184 kJ to 1 kg of water at room temperature, then the temperature will increase by 1 oC, but if the same amount of heat is added to 1 kg of other liquid such as alcohol the temperature increase will be different due to different heat capacity.
