Temperature ? What happens to be it?

Temperature ? a term that we use daily as a matter of course, without being made aware of the physical correlations. But how may be the term temperature defined?
Everybody perceives temperature in their environment purely subjectively. If we are too warm or too cold, it is just a feeling, which might be different from individual to individual ? because not everyone gets cold at exactly the same speed. The word temperature ? or, better, the condition, that influences (among other things) our state of mind ? is chatted about daily whenever we are discussing the expected temperature from the weather forecast with friends, acquaintances or colleagues.
Temperature
With the word temperature (from the Greek ?thermis? = warm), a specific thermal state of a body is described. Heat is a measure of the energy of a body, that is generated by the random motion of its atoms or molecules within the body? pressure gauge octa . Here, the temperature is the magnitude of circumstances which establishes the power content associated with other physical quantities (mass, heat capacity).
Temperature unit
The machine of temperature is the Kelvin. At a temperature of 0 K, all atoms or molecules within a body are in rest ? all motion in the body is frozen. One describes this state as the absolute zero point. The Celsius temperature scale that is more common in our latitudes defines the zero point because the freezing point of water, since this problem could be reproduced without great technical effort in past times.
Temperature measurement
Different physical properties are directly influenced by the temperature and therefore are used for temperature measurement, such as, for example:
the dependence of expansion on temperature
the change in electrical resistance with temperature
voltage generation according to the temperature
temperature-dependent frequency fluctuations
changes in the wavelength of the radiation of a body, depending on the temperature
