When do you use heat and when do you use temperature when doing calculations/describing thermodynamic terms?

Hi,

In thermodynamics terms, temperature indicates random motion of particles, while heat is the transfer of energy due to temperature differences. Usually, you're asked to solve for heat at constant pressure or delta H (units is kJ or kJ/mol), whereas temperature is usually part of the calculations process.
