At midnight, you walk outside. The temperature of the air has been exactly -12 Celcius for several hours. You touch a metal fence post, a block of wood, and some snow. Apply the concept of thermal equilibrium to identify the correct statement.
A. The fence post has the lowest temperature. B. The block will have the highest temperature. C. The fence post, the block of wood, and the snow will all be at a temperature of -12 Celcius. D. The process of thermal equilibrium causes cold to flow from objects with low specific heat capacities. E. Determining which object will have the lowest temperature is impossible without knowing the specific heat capacities.
