What is the need of measuring temperature instead of heat?
Asked by Nimmi | 4th May, 2018, 03:24: PM
Temperature is a measure of hotness and coldness of a body.
Temperature can be measured with the help of thermometer.
Heat is a kind of energy which is transferred from one body to another.
Amount of heat gained or lost is given by,
Q= m x s x t
where, Q- amount of heat gained or lost
m- mass of body
s- specific heat capacity
t- rise in temperature
Thus from this we understand that in order to calculate amount of heat lost or gained we must know the initial and the final temperature of body.
