Thermodynamics: Temperature

Temperature

When talking about temperature, people give a very broad and general definition of what temperature is. This definition is that temperature is the measurement of hot and cold. However, what is truly hot and cold. Instead of describing temperature this way it should be described as the following. Temperature is the measurement of the kinetic energy within the molecular bond between atoms and particles. The colder the molecules become the lower the kinetic energy, while the warmer they become the more kinetic energy is built up between the molecular bonds.
