What is Temperature ?

Temperature is a measure of the temperature or coldness of an object. It is a measure of the average molecular kinetic energy of a system. Kinetic energy for gases is proportional to absolute temperatures. It is perceived by senses and is often expressed in terms of hot or cold.

1- Celcius (° C): The Celsius scale is a temperature measurement unit named in 1742 by the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. Water freezing temperature 0 ° C; The boiling temperature was accepted as 100 ° C.

2- Fahrenheit (° F): Fahrenheit scale is a temperature measurement unit created in 1724 by the German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. Water freezing temperature 32 ° F; The boiling temperature was accepted as 212 ° F and was divided into 180 degrees between two points.

3- Kelvin (° K): Kelvin takes the notion of absolute zero in thermodynamics from Lord Kelvin, a Scottish scientist who first applied gases to all substances. The freezing temperature of the water is 273 ° K and the boiling temperature is 373 ° K.

4- Reomur (° R): Reomur is a temperature measurement instrument that accepts freezing and boiling points of water at 0 and 80 degrees. This thermometer takes its name from René Antoine Ferchault de Réaumur. The freezing temperature of the water is 0 ° R and the boiling temperature is 80 ° R.
