How hot particles can get [duplicate]

One way in which an object is affected by temperature rise is that the wavelength of the radiation it emits is gets smaller and smaller. Another way of looking at it is that as an object gets hotter, ...

What--is the Ultimate Limit of heat based off c? [duplicate]

As heat goes up, molecules start moving at a faster rate. A gas molecule, if unhindered, could speed across the United States in three hours. I don't even want to know about plasma. But if heat ...

Is there a “high temperature” variant of 0 degrees Kelvin? [duplicate]

I know that -273.15 degrees celsius, also known as Absolute Zero or 0K is the low temperature limit for objects, but is it possible that there is a 'highest temperature?' I would have to guess that ...

Why is it physically impossible to heat something higher than Planck's Temperature (absolute hot) [duplicate]

Why can't we just keep heating matter past Planck's temperature? Planck's temperate or 10 to the power of 32 Kelvin is the hottest temperature possible. If you're shooting an atom with heat radiation ...

Highest temperature [duplicate]

The temperature of a body varies with the KE of its particles. The maximum KE can be obtained by making the atoms move about near the speed of light. Let us take the body as a gas so that the body can ...
