Temperature Context: Boiling water is hot. Ice is cold. When it snows, the air is cold. Objective: Describe how hot or cold a material (solid/liquid/gas) is. - Temperature is a measure for heat content = thermal energy = the energy that can be removed from/added to matter by bringing it in contact with other matter. Transferred thermal energy is called heat . - There is a minimum temperature , where all particles are at rest (0K). - When two materials are in contact, heat flows from the hot to the cold object , and eventually the two materials have the same temperature , no matter what them are made off, no matter if they are solids or fluids.
