Ce qui / ce que

Ce qui / ce que

Are both of these sentences grammatically correct? I understand why 'ce qui' in the first sentence is correct, but not why 'ce que' would be correct in the second one. I would be grateful for an explanation.

Ce qui à un moment donné est le substrat, n’est pas chaud

Ce que le substrat est à un moment donné, n’est pas chaud

Bonjour Jan !

Indeed here both sentences are correct, though they each take the statement from a different "end" so to speak :)
1 -> What is at one point the substrate, isn't hot.

2 -> What the substrate is at one point, isn't hot.

I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !
