For each of the situations described below, the object considered is undergoing some changes. Among the possible changes you should consider are: (Q) The object is absorbing or giving off heat. (T) The object's temperature is changing. (U) The object's internal energy is changing. (W) The object is doing mechanical work or having work done on it. For each of the situations described below, identify which of the four changes are taking place and write as many of the letters Q T U W (or none) as are appropriate.
