It is indirect measurement. A thermometer, for example, measures the expansion of an appropriate fluid - alcohol or Mercury. Some instruments (thermocouples) measure the differential expansions of metal strips

Is temperature a form of energy?

Temperature is not a form of energy, but a measurement of energy (specifically, heat energy). You can't add temperature to a substance, because every substance already has a temperature, whether it be at -50o C or 900o C. However, you can add heat to change the temperature.

Are temperature and thermal heat the same thing?

No temperature is a specific measurement of heat. Thus at a temperature of absolute zero there is no heat but there is a temperature measurement.

Is temperature a noun?
