the measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in matter.
the temperature scale on which water freezes at 32 degrees and boils at 212 degrees.
the temperature scale on which water freezes at 0 degrees and boils at 100 degrees.
the temperature scale on wich zero is the temperrture at which no more energy can be removed from matter.
the temperature at which no more energy can be removed from matter.
thermal energy that is transferred from matter at a higher temperature to matter at a lower temperture

change in enegy
change in energy= mass X specific heat X change in temperature.
heat is transferred from one particle of matter to another without the movement of the matter.
