Temperature ? What actually is it?

Temperature ? a term that we use daily as a matter of course, without being made aware of the physical correlations. But how is the term temperature defined?
Everybody perceives temperature within their environment purely subjectively. If we have been too warm or too cold, it is a feeling, which may be different from individual to individual ? because not everyone gets cold at the same speed. The term temperature ? or, better, the condition, that influences (among other things) our mind-set ? is chatted about daily when we are discussing the expected temperature from the elements forecast with friends, acquaintances or colleagues.
Silly
With the term temperature (from the Greek ?thermis? = warm), a particular thermal state of a body is described. Heat is really a measure of the energy of a body, which is generated by the random motion of its atoms or molecules in the body?s interior. Here, the temperature may be the magnitude of circumstances which establishes the energy content connected with other physical quantities (mass, heat capacity).
Temperature unit
The machine of temperature is the Kelvin. At Urge of 0 K, all atoms or molecules inside a body are at rest ? all motion in the body is frozen. One describes this state as the absolute zero point. The Celsius temperature scale which is more common inside our latitudes defines the zero point as the freezing point of water, since this condition could possibly be reproduced without great technical effort in past times.
Temperature measurement
Different physical properties are directly influenced by the temperature and therefore are employed for temperature measurement, such as for example, for example:
the dependence of expansion on temperature
the change in electrical resistance with temperature
voltage generation depending on the temperature
temperature-dependent frequency fluctuations
changes in the wavelength of the radiation of a body, according to the temperature
