    What does (temperature Or Temperatur) mean? Let's check what the community at Wikipedia thinks

    På svenska: Temperatur är en fysikalisk storhet och ett mått på värmetillstånd. Värmeflödet är från en högre temperatur till en lägre temperatur. Vid lika temperatur är föremål i termisk jämvikt, se termodynamikens nollte huvudsats. Vidare kan också olika färgtoner av ljus mätas i så kallad färgtemperatur. Lär dig mer på Wikipedia
    In English: Temperature is a physical quantity that expresses quantitatively the attribute of hotness or coldness. Temperature is measured with a thermometer. It reflects the kinetic energy of the vibrating and colliding atoms making up a substance. Thermometers are calibrated in various temperature scales that historically have relied on various reference points and thermometric substances for definition. The most common scales are the Celsius scale with the unit symbol °C (formerly called centigrade), the Fahrenheit scale (°F), and the Kelvin scale (K), the latter being used predominantly for scientific purposes. The kelvin is one of the seven base units in the International System of Units (SI). Absolute zero, i.e., zero kelvin or −273.15 °C, is the lowest point in the thermodynamic temperature scale. Experimentally, it can be approached very closely but not actually reached, as recognized in the third law of thermodynamics. It would be impossible to extract energy as heat from a body at that temperature. Temperature is important in all fields of natural science, including physics, chemistry, Earth science, astronomy, medicine, biology, ecology, material science, metallurgy, mechanical engineering and geography as well as most aspects of daily life.
