We are asked what is the relationship between the temperature changes of the two objects.
Assume A is of higher temperature and B has a lower temperature.
If two objects, A and B, of different temperature come into direct contact, what is the relationship between the heat lost by one object and the heat gained by the other? What is the relationship between the temperature changes of the two objects? (Assume that the two objects do not lose any heat to anything else.)
