Cold refers to the condition or subjective perception of having low temperature , the opposite of hot . [ note 1 ] A lower bound to temperature is the absolute zero , defined as 0 K on the Kelvin scale , an absolute thermodynamic temperature scale. This corresponds to −273.15 °C on the Celsius scale, −459.67 °F on the Fahrenheit scale , and 0 °R on the Rankine scale . Since temperature relates to the thermal energy held by an object or a sample of matter, which is the kinetic energy of the random motion of the particle constituents of matter, an object will have less thermal energy when it is colder and more when it is hotter. If it were possible to cool a system to absolute zero, all motion of the particles in a sample of matter would cease and they would be at complete rest in this classical sense.
