Molecular Explanation of Temperature

According to the molecular theory solids vibrate about their mean position, when heat is applied to solid, the amplitude of vibration of these molecules become larger and their kinetic energy increases. From kinetic theory, the total translational kinetic energy of the molecules is directly proportional to the absolute temperature, thus increase in kinetic energy implies increase in temperature.
