If two objects of different temperature are brought into contact, internal energy is transferred via heat.

If two objects collide, kinetic energy is transferred between them.

When each object has the same energy, energy transfer can still occur between objects. The object with the greatest mass or traveling speed will transfer the energy.

The transfer of energy between two objects is referred to as heat transfer. It is always called heat transfer, regardless of what kind of energy is being transferred.HeatThermal energy.yes. btw, that's not a question.

The transfer of energy between two objects at different average thermal kinetic energies (temperatures) is referred to as heat transfer. It is always called heat transfer, regardless of what kind of energy is being transferred.

energy transfer occurs due to random collision of different molecules of the objects with each other,if the objects are of equal energy,there will be no detectable heat transfer,as molecules have same energy,but in between the objects having different heats the energy transfer occurs,due to the random collision of molecules with each other.

Because transfer of heat requires particles, so solid objects will be better at conducting heat than gas.

It depends on the respective temperatures of the bodies.

when two cold objects are rubbed against with each other...

1.Conduction or diffusionThe transfer of energy between objects that are in physical contact2.ConvectionThe transfer of energy between an object and its environment, due to fluid motion3.RadiationThe transfer of energy to or from a body by means of the emission or absorption of electromagnetic radiation

Such energy can be transferred. Usually it will transfer from hotter objects to colder objects.

Heater is energy. Energy transfers from the higher energy unit to the lower energy unit, until they reach equilibrium. Equilibrium is when both objects contain the same amount of energy, therefore it is impossible for any to transfer between each other. The basic conditions for no heat transfer between two objects is for them to be the same temperature. To keep them at that same temperature, they would have to be floating in a perfect vacuum chamber so they had no contact with matter whatsoever. They would have to be shielded from infrared heat energy as well.

No, energy will transfer between any adjacent bodies, moreover, a medium is not necessary for energy to transfer between objects at all. That would be a little thing called radiation.

Heat is not the transfer of thermal energy. Heat is the thermal energy. What drives itacross a boundary between substances or objects is a difference in their temperatures.

Conduction, convection, radiation Conduction: The transfer of energy by collisions between the atoms and molecules in a material. Convection: Transfers heat when particles move between objects or areas that differ in temperature. Radiation: The transfer of energy by waves.

The transfer of heat is effectively the transfer of vibration from a substance with higher level (warmer) to another at a lower level (cooler). The vibration is thought to relate to the actual substance. But I believe that there is a medium in the Universe made of particles which transmit vibrations between objects. For example between the sun and Earth.

Heat will naturally flow from hotter to colder objects.

Thermal energy is a specific type of energy that all objects have. Heat refers specifically to the TRANSFER of this type of energy. I believe this is similar to the difference between "mechanical energy" and "work" (where "work" refers to the transfer of such energy). However, the two terms are actually often used interchangeably.

Energy can be transferred between objects, and can change its form.However, energy is neither created nor destroyed.(Law of Conservation of Energy)

That sounds like a definition of "conduction" - as opposed to convection or radiation, which are other modes of heat transfer.

Energy is mainly transferred in the form of heat. So,transfer of heat energy from one body to another by direct contact is called thermal conduction.

If those two objects are in contact of one another then energy transfer would be rapid. But if those two objects are far apart then energy transfer will be much slower. It is the heat energy that transfers from warmer object to a cooler object.

Since different objects have different heat conductivity and different temperatures and heat capacities, the time can vary without limit.
