When two objects at difference temperatures touch, they both decrease or increase to result in the same temperatures so that it's at equilibrium. To change in temperature, the heat energy from the the object with the higher temperature will always flow to the object with the lower temperature. This is also the definition of heat and is not to be mistaken with temperature.

Heat is the transfer of energy from an object with a higher temperature to an object with a lower temperature.

Temperature is the measurement of kinetic energy of particles in an object.

Different objects may have different temperatures

No. It is an example of radiation. The heat is transferred by microwaves, which are a form of electromagnetic radiation. Conduction occurs when two objects of different temperatures are in contact or when different parts of an object have different temperatures.

Heat energy flows form the warmer object to the cooler object, and their temperatures change toward each other, so that the difference in temperatures decreases.

Heat is thermal energy. If two objects having different temperatures are brought into contact, heat will always flow from the warmer one to the cooler one, until their temperatures are equal.

In that case, heat will flow from the hotter to the colder object. This will continue until both are at the same temperature.

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

because when two objects are brought in contact with each other which are having different temperatures heat flow from higher to lower that is conduction takes place till the temperature of both become equal....

Heat will flow from the hooter object to the cooler object until the temperatures are equal.

There is a transfer of heat energy from the object at higher temperature to the object at lower temperature, which continues until the two objects are at the same temperature as each other.

Convection, flowing through a liquid or a gas, Conduction, a transfer that occurs between the contact between two objects of different temperatures, or Radiation, where heat is emitted from the surface of an object.

Given two objects with different temperatures, heat will flow towards the object of lower temperature. Thus, heat flows from "hot" to "cold".

Heat will flow from the object that has the higher temperature, to the one with the lower temperature. This will continue until equilibrium is reached, i.e., both objects have the same temperature.

Heat energy will be transferred from the hotter objects to cooler objects until they are all at the same temperature.

Heat always flows from warmer objects to cooler objects, unless you have a device (like a heat pump) to prevent this. The natural tendency is for two or more objects at different temperatures to eventually all have the same temperature and this is accomplished by heat flowing from the warmer objects to the cooler objects.

Heat moves from the stove to your hand, as heat flows from objects with higher temperatures to objects with lower temperatures.

thermal energy(heat) transfer to cooler objects...............................................................................................................

When both temperatures are the same, heat does NOT flow between objects.

the answer is They are at different temperatures. took a science test on this and got it right!

OK, let's see an example. Two objects of the same mass and same material (for simplicity) have temperatures of 50° and 60°, respectively. When heat is transferred between them, they may have temperatures of, say, 51° and 59°; later 52° and 58°, etc.; this will continue until they have the same temperature. But if they only have contact for a brief time, they will not necessarily have the same temperature - it needs a certain time for the temperatures to become equal.

Strictly speaking, heat is the transfer of energy from objects of differing temperatures. To have heat energy, an item must be of a different temperature than its environment.

If the contact is good, then energy (heat) will pass from the object at a higher temperature to the one at a lower temperature until the temperatures of the two bodies are equal. This precludes cases such as a burning match stick touching a flammable object and such

All you need is their temperatures. If their temperatures are different, then heat will flow from the warmer one to the cooler one.

The object with the lower average temperature will take heat from the other object until both objects have the same temperature.
