the thermodynamic scale Kelvin.


the thermodynamic scale Kelvin.
The temperature scale Kelvin has not negative values because at the value of 0 K, the kinetic energy of all the things
(# E= KT = 1/2 m v^2#)
is zero and every thing is stopped.
0 K = -273,15 °C or 273 K = 0°C
In Anglo-Saxon countries exists also the scale Rankine where 0 °R = -459,67 °F = 0 K (°F = Fahrenheit degree)
