Q12.3 (a) Explain why

 (a) Two bodies at different temperatures T_1 and T_2 if brought in thermal contact do not necessarily settle to the mean temperature (T_1 + T_2) / 2.

Answers (1)


As we know the heat will flow from the hotter body to the colder body till their temperatures become equal. That temperature will be equal to the mean of the initial temperatures of the bodies only if the two thermal capacities of the two bodies are equal.
