  • The zero point on the absolute temperature scale; -273.15° C or 0° K; theoretically, the temperature at which molecular motion ceases.
  • This is the lowest possible temperature (0 Kelvin, -273.15° Celsius, -459.67° Fahrenheit). At this temperature, all molecular motion stops.
  • The temperature at which a gas would show no pressure if the general law for gases would hold for all temperatures. It is equal to -273.16 degrees C or -459 degrees F. CF: temperature Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, 2
