Temperature ? What happens to be it?

Temperature ? a term that we use almost daily as a matter of course, without being made alert to the physical correlations. But how is the term temperature defined?
Sublime perceives temperature within their environment purely subjectively. If we have been too warm or too cold, this can be a feeling, which might be different from person to person ? because not everyone gets cold at the same speed. The term temperature ? or, better, the condition, that influences (among other activities) our mind-set ? is discussed 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 particular thermal state of a body is described. Heat is a measure of the power of a body, that is generated by the random motion of its atoms or molecules within the body?s interior. Here, the temperature may be the magnitude of a state which establishes the energy content connected with other physical quantities (mass, heat capacity).
Temperature unit
The unit of temperature may be the Kelvin. At a temperature of 0 K, all atoms or molecules inside a body are at rest ? all motion within the body is frozen. One 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 problem could be reproduced without great technical effort in past times.
Temperature measurement
Different physical properties are directly dependent on 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, with regards to the temperature
