User: Is temperature a measure of heat

Weegy: Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is energy something has because of its movement. So, when something increases in energy, that means that the average kintetic energy has increased, [ which in turn is caused by gaining heat. However, temperature itself is not the actual measurement of heat gained.
