What is the difference between temperature and heat?
1. Temperature is measured by a thermometer, and heat is measured by a barometer
2. Heat is measured in calories and temperature is measured in joules
3. Temperature measures the motion of molecules, and heat is the energy of that motion

4. A snake’s body temperature increases when the snake lies in the sun.
According to second law of thermodynamics, heat energy cannot be completely converted into useful work owing to
1. the entropy of the system
2. the enthalpy of the system
3. the internal energy of the system
4. the translational energy of the system
According to Kinetic Molecular Theory, gas pressure is due to
1. the mass of particles.
2. the collisions of particles on the walls of a container.
3. the forces of repulsion between the particles.
4. the energy loss experienced by each particle.
