    A. The total potential energy of the particles in a substance is its thermal energy. The particles in the entire house are more spread out, so it contains fewer particles than the bedroom. Therefore, it is the bedroom that has the greater thermal energy. B. The total kinetic energy of the particles in a substance is its thermal energy. The particles in the entire house are more spread out, so it contains fewer particles than the bedroom. Therefore, it is the bedroom that has the greater thermal energy. C. The total kinetic energy and potential energy of the particles in a substance is its thermal energy. The entire house is larger than the small bedroom, so it contains more particles. Therefore, the entire house has the greater thermal energy. D. The total potential energy of the particles in a substance is its thermal energy. The entire house is larger than the small bedroom, so it contains more particles. Therefore, the entire house has the greater thermal energy.
