Change In Energy

Perhaps the most interesting property of thermal energy is that it spontaneously flows from one object to another, provided that the first object is hotter than the second.That’s why ice melts in a warm room, fingers freeze on cold metal, and sunlight continuously warms the cool earth.

When energy spontaneously flows from a hotter object to a cooler object, we refer to that energy (while in transit) as heat. Heat is to be contrasted with work, which is any other type of energy transfer .

h+w

Here,h=heat added,w=work done.
