What are the similarities between thermal energy and heat? Heat is a transfer of thermal energy between two bodies due to temperature differences and thermal energy measures the kinetic energy of bodies. Both heat and thermal energy have the same units.
How are mechanical energy and heat related? Mechanical energy can be converted into heat, and heat can be converted into some mechanical energy. This important physical observation is known as the mechanical equivalent of heat. This means one can change the internal energy of a system by either doing work to the system, or adding heat to the system.
What are the similarities and differences between thermal energy and temperature? The average kinetic energy of the structural elements of a system (atoms, molecules, charged particles) is called temperature. The total kinetic energy of the structural elements of a system is called thermal energy. The temperature can be positive or negative, while the thermal energy always has positive values.
Is energy and mechanical energy the same? The energy acquired by the objects upon which work is done is known as mechanical energy. Mechanical energy is the energy that is possessed by an object due to its motion or due to its position. Mechanical energy can be either kinetic energy (energy of motion) or potential energy (stored energy of position).
