Is temperature of molecule function of its kinetic energy? If so how is it manifested in terms of atomic structure? If transfer is by photons what motivating factor between a cold and a hot provokes an exchange of force carriers? When do photons activate the atomic electron energy level structure in preference to affecting so called “vibrational” energy? When do they affect the nucleus? What determines the total energy content of atomic particles?
