At the particle level, what happens when you touch a piece of hot coal? The particles in the coal absorb the heat from your hand. The particles in the coal transfer heat to your hand. The particles in your hand give off heat. The particles of the hot coal absorb the cold from your hand.

    How about let's say you have a pot of hot water and you want to put pasta in it, the water won't get cooler (may change very very little) because the pasta got put in, the pasta will get warmer because the water was warm
