Temperature is a measure of the amount of average kinetic energy of the atoms in a compound.

Temperature vs. Heat

Concept #1: Understanding Temperature and Heat.

Temperature and heat are not as similar as you might think. Temperature is independent on the amount of matter, whereas heat is dependent on the amount of matter.

Example #1: Which of the following has the greatest amount of heat?

Remember that heat is based on the amount of matter and therefore represents an extensive property

Temperature Conversions

Concept #2: Kelvins, Celsius and Fahrenheit

Although the SI unit for temperature is Kelvin you will required to know how to convert between Celsius and Fahrenheit as well. 

Example #2: Convert the following units of temperature. 

-115°C into Fahrenheit                                                  

 73.23 K into Fahrenheit
