 Dec 15th 2009, 10:12 PM #2 Physics Team   Join Date: Feb 2009 Posts: 1,425 Suppose we have a 10 kg mass and a 1 kg mass, both at room temperature. Both are separately heated till they reach the same temp say 60 deg. Now if we bring them in contact there is no flow of heat from one to the other as both are at the same temperature. However we can see that more energy has been supplied to the 10 kg block to raise it to the same temp. Hence we can say that it has more energy, but both are in thermal equilibrium.
