Please answer all questions
The two temperature scales with the same interval step size are the
Celsius and Fahrenheit.
Fahrenheit and Kelvin.
Kelvin and Celsius.
... this does not exist.
Substance A has a higher specific heat than substance B. With all other factors equal, which requires the most energy to heat equal masses of A and B to the same temperature?
Both require the same amount of heat.
Answer depends on the density of each substance.
With all other factors equal, the most likely to burn your mouth when taken directly from an oven is a food with
higher specific heat.
lower specific heat.
... specific heat is not important in this situation.
more information needed.

Anytime a temperature difference occurs, you can expect
cold to move to where it is warmer.
energy movement from higher temperature regions.

As you go to higher elevations above sea level the boiling point of water
stays the same.
changes with the initial temperature of the water.
Increasing the rate of heating under a pot of boiling water will
increase the temperature of the boiling water.
increase the rate of boiling, but not the temperature.
increase both the rate of boiling and the temperature of the boiling water.
all of the above.
As a solid goes through a phase change to a liquid, heat is absorbed and the temperature
remains the same.
The transfer of energy from molecule to molecule is called
No water vapor is added to or removed from a sample of air that is cooling, so the relative humidity of this sample of air will
remain the same.
the answer depends on the temperature.
