Absolute Temperature: Temperature measured on a scale that sets absolute zero as zero. In the SI system, the kelvin scale is used to measure absolute temperature.
Kelvin Temperature Scale: A temperature scale with the freezing point of +273°K (Kelvin) and the boiling point of +373° K. It is used primarily for scientific purposes. Also known as the Absolute Temperature Scale. P . . . View Full Definition
Empirical Temperature: A property that is the same for any two systems that are in thermodynamic equilibrium with each other.
Fahrenheit Temperature Scale: A temperature scale where water at sea level has a freezing point of +32°F and a boiling point of +212°F. More commonly used in areas that observe the English system of measurement. Created . . . View Full Definition

Colour Temperature: Colours are warm, hot or cold in appearance; orange, red, blue. This is true within each category of colour. There are hotter and colder colours in every category.
Celsius Temperature Scale: A temperature scale where water at sea level has a freezing point of 0°C (Celsius) and a boiling point of +100°C. More commonly used in areas that observe the metric system of measurement. C . . . View Full Definition
Color Temperature: Way of expressing the color quality of a light source. The color temperature is measured in kelvin (k).
Color Temperature Meter: Device for measuring the color temperature of a light source.
Critical Temperature (Tc): The temperature at the critical point. A gas above the critical temperature will never condense into a liquid, no matter how much pressure is applied. Most substances have a critical tempera . . . View Full Definition
