Physics Quiz On Heat And Temperature!

Heat and Temperature are interlinked but both are distinct concepts. When you heat anything, temperature rises or lower down according to the environment. Heat is the absolute energy while the temperature is the measurement. This quiz has been created to test and enhance your knowledge about Heat and Temperature. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!
