# Temperature

Temperature is term used to represent hotness or coolness on any of a number of scales, including Fahrenheit and Celsius. According to temperature, heat energy will naturally move from a hotter (body with a higher temperature) to a colder (body with a lower temperature) (one at a lower temperature). Temperature is not the same as the energy of a thermodynamic system; for instance, an iceberg has a much higher total heat energy than a burning match, despite the fact that a match is burning at a much higher temperature. As opposed to extensive characteristics, like mass or volume, temperature is referred to as an intense property—one that is independent of the quantity of matter being considered—along with pressure, density, and other comparable properties.

A device is used for measurement  of temperature is thermometer.

## Temperature Scales

Today, three temperature scales are frequently used.
In the United States and a few other English-speaking nations, temperatures are measured using the Fahrenheit (°F) scale
Nearly all nations that have adopted the metric system of measurement utilise the Celsius (°C) temperature scale, which is also widely used in the sciences.
As the accepted global standard for scientific temperature measurement, the Kelvin (K) scale, an absolute temperature scale. According to international system of units, the Kelvin is the SI unit of temperature

What is Absolute Zero?

An absolute zero obtained by moving the Celsius scale by 273.15° such that absolute zero coincides with 0 K.

#### Celsius

`°C = (°F - 32) x 5/9`
`°C = K - 273.15`

#### Fahrenheit

`°F = (°C x 9/5) + 32`
`°F = ((K - 273.15) x 9/5) + 32`

#### Kelvin

`K = °C + 273.15`
`K = ((°F - 32) x 5/9) + 273.15`
