Auto-Ignition Temperature

Science / Chemistry / Auto-Ignition Temperature: Minimum temperature at which the vapor/air mixture over a liquid spontaneously catches fire.

Sea Surface Temperature (SST)

Science / Weather / Sea Surface Temperature (SST): The temperature of the water's surface. It is measured using buoy and ship data, infrared satellite imagery, and coastal observations. MORE

NEC Temperature Code (T Code)

Technology / Motors / NEC Temperature Code (T Code): An index for describing maximum allowable 'skin' (surface) temperature of a motor under any normal or abnormal operating conditions. The 'T' codes are applicable to U.L. Iisted explosion-proof motors. MORE

Mean Temperature

Science / Weather / Mean Temperature: The average of temperature readings taken over a specified amount of time. Often the average of the maximum and minimum temperatures. MORE

Kelvin Temperature Scale

Science / Weather / Kelvin Temperature Scale: A temperature scale with the freezing point of +273°K (Kelvin) and the boiling point of +373° K. It is used primarily for scientific purposes. Also known as the Absolute Temperature Scale. Proposed MORE

Standard Temperature And Pressure

Science / Chemistry / Standard Temperature And Pressure: Used to describe a substance at standard pressure and a temperature of 0°C (273.15 K). MORE


Science / Chemistry / Temperature: Temperature is an intensive property associated with the hotness or coldness of an object. It determines the direction of spontaneous heat flow (always from hot to cold). MORE
