What is temperature? Temperature
is a measure of hotness or coldness of a body or environment.
Temperature corresponds to the average speed at which the
particles (atoms and molecules) in a sample of matter (something
that has mass and exists as a solid, liquid, gas, or plasma)
are moving. Temperature is measured on a definitive scale
(Thermometer) in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius, and units
Below are some common formulas and standards for each
scale. Use our temperature converter to check other temperatures

Note: Absolute zero is the temperature
where no further energy may be extracted (lowest possible temperature)
Formulas for converting temperatures:
Convert Farenheit to Celcius:
= (5/9) * (Farenheit - 32)
Convert Celcius to Farenheit:
= (9/5) * Celcius + 32
Convert Celcius to kelvin:
= Celcius + 273
Convert kelvin to Celcius:
= kelvin - 273
