temperature temperature, thermal energy and heat

Question Answer
temperature measures kinetic energy of particles in matter
Farenheit Scale most common way to measure temperature in the U.S.freezing point 32 / boiling point-212
Celsius Scale most common way to measure temperature in other countriesfreezing point- 0/ boiling point-100
absolute zero zero on a Calvin Scale at 273 C- no more thermal energy can be removed from matter
heat thermal energy moving from a warmer object to a cooler object
specific heat the energy required to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of a material by 1 kelvin
