If two glasses of water have the same temperature do they have the same amount of thermal energy? They would have the same quality of thermal energy, but not necessarily the same amount. If one... Sep 14, 2014 · Thermal energy is the total kinetic energy of the atoms or molecules in a body. The energy is transfer from a high temperature object to a lower temperature object. The amount of thermal energy transferred is the amount of heat that flowed. Thermal energy is transferred in three different ways: conduction, convection and radiation.
Jun 03, 2020 · As the energy is transferred you and the water become the same temperature. When this happens there is no longer a flow of energy so no more heat. You both still have a temperature due to the vibrations of your particles but there is no longer a temperature difference so there is no longer a flow of energy.
