Temperature ? What happens to be it?

Temperature ? a term that people use almost daily as a matter needless to say, 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 have been too warm or too cold, it is just a feeling, which may be different from person to person ? 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 discussed daily whenever we are discussing the expected temperature from the weather forecast with friends, acquaintances or colleagues.
Temperature
With the term temperature (from the Greek ?thermis? = warm), a specific thermal state of a body is described. Heat is a measure of the power of a body, which is generated by the random motion of its atoms or molecules within the body?s interior. Here, Jaw-dropping is the magnitude of a state which establishes the energy content associated with other physical quantities (mass, heat capacity).
Temperature unit
The unit of temperature is the Kelvin. At a temperature of 0 K, all atoms or molecules within a body are at rest ? all motion in the body is frozen. Smash describes this state as the absolute zero point. The Celsius temperature scale which is more common inside our latitudes defines the zero point as the freezing point of water, since this condition could possibly be reproduced without great technical effort in past times.
Temperature measurement
Different physical properties are directly influenced by the temperature and thus are used for temperature measurement, such as, for example:
the dependence of expansion on temperature
the change in electrical resistance with temperature
voltage generation depending on the temperature
temperature-dependent frequency fluctuations
changes in the wavelength of rays of a body, based on the temperature
