Unformatted text preview: Two objects are made of the same material, but have different masses and temperatures. If the objects are brought into thermal contact, which one will have the greater temperature change? 1) the one with the higher initial temperature 2) the one with the lower initial temperature 3) the one with the greater mass 4) the one with the smaller mass 5) the one with the higher specific heat ConcepTest ConcepTest 19.1a 19.1a Thermal Contact I Thermal Contact I Two objects are made of the same material, but have different masses and temperatures. If the objects are brought into thermal contact, which one will have the greater temperature change? 1) the one with the higher initial temperature 2) the one with the lower initial temperature 3) the one with the greater mass 4) the one with the smaller mass 5) the one with the higher specific heat Since the objects are made of the same material, the only difference between them is their mass. Clearly, the object with less mass will change temperature more easily since not much material is there (compared to the more massive object).

You measure the temperatures and find that one liquid has a higher temperature than the other....
