Mini-Quiz: Temperature

by Ron Kurtus (revised 14 November 2014)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. What is the difference between temperature and thermal energy?

Temperature is average kinetic energy and thermal energy is total KE

Temperature is hot and thermal energy is cold

They are the same thing

2. What limits the greatest possible temperature?

When the particles stop moving altogether

The limitation on how fast a molecule can travel

Light has the greatest temperature

3. Why is a scale added to a thermometer?

So that you can determine the temperature reading

So you can weigh the temperature

It is a design to make it look more appealing

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
