Unformatted text preview: move slower, as heat is added they move faster. The temperature of a region is defined in terms of the average energy of motion of the molecules in this region, or in other words the temperature of a region is defined in terms of the average kinetic energy of the molecules in this region. The molecules of the gasses, liquids, and solids in a region are in thermal equilibrium if they have the same temperature. Procedures : Measure temperatures of fingers, tap water, and ice water in both Celsius and Fahrenheit....
