Select correct statement related to heat (1) Heat is possessed by a body (2) Hot water contains more heat as compared to cold water (3) Heat is a energy which flows due to temperature difference (4) All of these
Sol. Answer (3) why other options also seems correct explain error in them

Dear student,
Heat,  is thermal energy transferred from a hotter system to a cooler system that are in we cannot say that a body possess heat.

Heat is defined  as thermal energy transferred between two systems at different temperatures that come in contact. so we cannot say  hot water contains more heat as compared to cold water

Only statement c is correct.

Can a body at lower temperature have more heat than a body at a higher temperature? How many people use DuckDuckGo? YES. Heat is the total energy of molecular motion in a substance while temperature is a measure of the average energy of molecular motion in a substance. Heat energy depends on the speed of the particles, the number of particles (the size or mass), and the type of particles in an object. Temperature does not depend on the size or type of object. If we take two objects which have the same temperature and bring them into contact, there will be no overall transfer of energy between them because the average energies of the particles in each object are the same. For example, the temperature of a small cup of water might be the same as the temperature of a large tub of water, but the tub of water has more heat because it has more water and thus more total thermal energy.
