Temperature can be defined as an objective comparative measure of heat energy. We cannot estimate how hot something is just by touching it. This is where the need of a unit comes from. There are different scales and units which are used for measuring heat energy and being Celsius, Fahrenheit and Kelvin the most popular among all of them. The basic unit of temperature in the International System of Units (SI) is Kelvin. The hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth was 57.8°C. It was on September 13, 1922 in Al ‘Aziziyah located in Libya.

  • The coldest theoretical temperature is Absolute zero at reaching which a substance does not possess any heat energy.
  • Bose-Einstein Condensation is a phenomenon that occurs to matter at a fraction of a degree above absolute zero.
  • The hottest man-made temperature ever recorded is about 7.2 trillion degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Conduction, convection, and radiation are the three processes of transferring heat from one substance to another.
  • Temperatures in our universe range from about 3,500,000,000 Kelvin to about 3 Kelvin.
  • A triple point is defined as the temperature by which a substance’s traditional three states of matter exist in equilibrium.
