a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object
a temperature scale that defines the freezing point of water as 32 degrees and the boiling point of water a 212 degrees
a temperature scale that defines the freezing point of water as 0 degrees and the boiling point of water as 100 degrees
the temperature scale on which zero is the temperature 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 temperature
