Interface Temperature

All Superinterfaces:

public interface Temperature extends Quantity<Temperature>
Degree of hotness or coldness of a body or an environment. The metric system unit for this quantity is "K" (Kelvin). The kelvin, symbol K, is the SI unit of thermodynamic temperature. It is defined by taking the fixed numerical value of the Boltzmann constant k to be 1.380 649 × 10−²³ when expressed in the unit J K⁻¹, which is equal to kg m² s⁻² K⁻¹, where the kilogram, metre and second are defined in terms of h, c and ∆νCs. This definition implies the exact relation k = 1.380 649 × 10⁻²³ kg m² s⁻² K⁻¹. Inverting this relation gives an exact expression for the kelvin in terms of the defining constants k, h and ∆νCs: 1 K = (1.380 649 / k) × 10⁻²³ kg m² s⁻²
