What is the Meaning & Definition of temperature

Temperature is that physical property or scale that allows us to know the temperatures, i.e., gives us a finished idea of how cold or heat has the body of a person, object, or a specified region. Then, if measured you the temperature to a hot object, it will have one higher temperature. The temperature is closely related to the internal energy of the thermodynamic system of a body, while this energy, in turn, is related to the movement of the particles that make up that system, which suggests that higher temperatures that sensitive system, the temperature of that body or object will be greater.
The unique and most accurate way to measure temperature is through a thermometer, or which can be calibrated according to various scales of measurement of the same. Temperature in the international system of units unit is the Kelvin, in and outside a scientific context we find the use of other scales such as scale Celsius or Centigrade and in countries of Anglo-Saxon origin the Fahrenheit.
A concept closely related to the temperature is chill, because contrary to what many believe the heat or the cold that we perceive is determined by the wind chill that with the actual temperature. That is why in times of very cold or very hot, usually pay more attention and place greater emphasis on the feeling of cold and heat that reigns rather than the actual temperature that able to not tells us really what our body feels.
Then, the wind chill is the way in which the human body perceives the temperature of objects and the environment, although this measure is obviously much more complex and will be permeable and subject to different feelings, it is possible to simulate a thermometer in thermal sensation such which it perceives a human body.
