    Solution Preview

    Heat and temperature are two different physical quantities. You can not find any similarity between the two.

    Temperature is a physical quantity associated to a body.

    Heat is a form of energy which flows from height temperature body to low temperature body spontaneously, when they come in contact.

    By absorbing heat energy, temperature of a body can increase, and on emission of heat energy temperature of a body decreases.
