A student has two blocks made of the same type of wood. The wooden blocks are both at the same temperature, but Block 1 weighs more than the Block 2.

Which block has more thermal energy and why?

  1. Block 1 has more thermal energy because it weighs more.
  2. Block 2 has more thermal energy because it weighs less.
  3. Both blocks have the same amount of thermal energy because they are at the same temperature.
