|The total kinetic energy produced by the vibration of all the molecules in a substance is called its heat content.
|The average kinetic energy of all the molecules present in that substance is called its temperature.
|It is a form of energy that gives the sensation of warmth.
|It is the degree of hotness or coldness of a body.
|Heat is the cause for the change in temperature.
|Temperature is the effect of heat.
|It is measured with the help of calorimeter.
|It is measured with the help of thermometer.
|Heat energy as such will not determine the direction of heat flow.
|Temperature is the indication for the direction of flow of heat. Heat always flows from the region of high temperature to the region of low temperature.
|Heat depends on the mass of the body.
|Temperature doesn’t depend on the mass of the body.
|Its SI unit is Joule (J).
|Its SI unit is Kelvin (K).
