    Thank you for soliciting our services 😉

    Temperature is the degree of agitation of the particles of a substance. The more the particles are agitated, the higher the temperature.

    Heat, on the other hand, is the transfer of energy from one object to another. This transfer takes place from the object with the highest temperature to the one with the lowest.

    I hope that answers your question!
