Temperature - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TemperatureTemperatureFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaA temperature is an objectivecomparative measure of hot or cold. Itis measured by a thermometer, whichmay work through the bulk behaviorof a thermometric material, detectionof thermal radiation, or particlekinetic energy. Several scales andunits exist for measuringtemperature, the most common beingCelsius (denoted C; formerly calledcentigrade), Fahrenheit (denoted F),and, especially in science, Kelvin(denoted K).Body temperature variationThe coldest theoretical temperature isabsolute zero, at which the thermalmotion of atoms and moleculesreaches its minimum classically, thiswould be a state of motionlessness,but quantum uncertainty dictates thatthe particles still possess a nitezero-point energy. In addition to this,a real system or object can never bebrought to a temperature of absoluteAnnual mean temperature aroundzero by thermodynamic means.the worldAbsolute zero is denoted as 0K on theKelvin scale, 273.15C on theCelsius scale, and 459.67F on the Fahrenheit scale.The kinetic theory oers a valuable but limited account of the behavior ofthe materials of macroscopic bodies, especially of uids. It indicates theabsolute temperature as proportional to the average kinetic energy of therandom microscopic motions of those of their constituent microscopicparticles, such as el
