Kelvin - Kinetic-Molecular Theory

Kelvin (absolute temperature)

the temperature scale used in chemistry, physics and some engineering calculations. Zero degrees Kelvin (-273 centigrade) is the temperature at which all thermal motion ceases. To convert from Kelvin into centigrade subtract 273 from the Kelvin temperature.

Kinetic Energy

the energy associated with an object because of its motion.

Kinetic-Molecular Theory (kinetic theory)

the theory that states a gas consists of molecules in constant random motion.
