Summary

A temperature is a numerical measure of hot and cold. Its measurement is by detection of heat radiation, particle velocity, kinetic energy, or most commonly, by the bulk behavior of a thermometric material. It may be calibrated in any of various temperature scales, Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin, etc.

Details

Many things depend on temperature, such as

  • the amount and properties of thermal radiation emitted from the surface of an object
  • speed of sound is a function of the square root of the absolute temperature
