Temperature quiz

Take the temperature quiz below to see how well you understand the concept of temperature. After completing this quiz with 100% accuracy, you will know exactly what we mean by temperature in physics terms. You will not need to use a paper and pencil to complete this quiz.

First, read the lesson about temperature and then take this quiz.

Objective of the temperature quiz:

  • Know what standard temperature is.
  • Know what temperature will freeze or boil water.
  • Know the scale used to measure temperature.
  • Match situations with it corresponding temperature.
  • Understand temperature in terms of kinetic energy.
  • Know what the Kelvin scale is.
Test your knowledge with the quiz below:

1. A standard temperature is
