A. The amount of thermal energy is directly related to the kinetic energy and potential energy of a substance's particles. A piece of coal has fewer total particles than a newly opened coal mine. Therefore the piece of coal has less thermal energy.

B. The amount of thermal energy is directly related to the kinetic energy of a substance's particles. The particles in a piece of coal are more concentrated. Therefore, the piece of coal has more thermal energy than the newly opened mine.
