What is the connection between temperature and kinetic energy?

A

As unrelated as both concepts seem, there is a fundamental connection between them. As observed in the molecules of an atom, when there is an increase in temperature, the molecules of the atoms begin to vibrate rapidly and move erratically, while a reduction in temperature will cause the molecules to move slowly.

Kinetic energy refers to the energy possessed by a body while it is in motion, while temperature refers to the degree of hotness or coldness of a body.
