Thermal Equilibrium

What is thermal equilibrium?

In this post, we explain the concept of thermal equilibrium, as a part of the Prelim Physics course under the module Waves and Thermodynamics and sub-part Thermodynamics. When two substances in physical contact with one another are in thermal equilibrium, they are said to be at the same temperature, when no heat energy is exchanged between one another.

The following video explains thermal equilibrium.
