Answer: Kelvin is the SI unit of temperature.
The commonly used scale to measure the temperature is the Celsius scale (°C). It is an empirical scale in which 0°C is defined by the freezing point of water, and 100 °C is the boiling point of water, both at sea-level atmospheric pressure. As it has100-degree interval, hence it is called a centigrade scale.
Effects of Temperature
Following are the physical processes that are related to temperature:
the physical properties of materials including the solid, liquid, gaseous, or plasma, vapor pressure, electrical conductivity, density, solubility, hardness, wear resistance, resistance, strength thermal conductivity, and corrosion.
The amount of thermal radiation emitted from the surface of an object.
the rate and extent to which chemical reactions occur
the speed of sound which is a function of the square root of the absolute temperature, etc.
What is the SI unit of Temperature?
The SI unit of temperature is Kelvin. It was developed by William Thomson and Baron Kelvin. This scale uses absolute zero as its null point.
