Temperature the average amount of energy of motion of each particle of a substance
Thermal Energy the total energy of motion in the particles of a substance
Thermometer a thin glass tube with a bulb on one end that contains the liquid, usually mercury or colored alcohol, that tells the temperature
Heat the transferred thermal energy from a hotter object to a cooler one
Conduction the direct transfer of heat from one substance to another substance that is touching
