The quantity measured by a thermometer. Bodies in thermal equilibrium with each other have the same temperature.

In gaseous fluid dynamics, temperature represents molecular kinetic energy, which is then consistent with the equation of state and with definitions of pressure as the average force of molecular impacts and density as the total mass of molecules in a volume.

For an ideal gas, temperature is the ratio of internal energy to the specific heat capacity at constant volume.
