How is temperature related to the average kinetic energy of molecules that make up a substance?

  • science - ,

    In gases, temperature is a measure of, and proportional to, the average translational kinetic energy of molecules and atoms. In solids and liquids, the situation is more complicated, but average kinetic energy does increase with temperature. There is still some "zero point" kinetic energy at absolute zero.
