An instrument used to measure temperature
The energy of motion in the molecules of a substance.
A measure of how hot (or cold) something is; specifically, a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object.
A form of energy that is transferred by a difference in temperature. Can be done through Conduction, Convection and radiation.
