How a race between two scientists to liquefy gases led them near to absolute zero - the coldest temperature possible.
- Absolute zero occurs at -273.15 degrees Celsius.
- Absolute zero is the temperature at which atoms cease to move.
- It is not known whether it is possible to reach absolute zero.
- Dewar and Kamerlingh Onnes competed to reach absolute zero.
For hundreds of years, scientists have been seeking to reach the coldest temperature possible – absolute zero.
Absolute Zero = 0 K or -273.15°C
Absolute zero occurs at -273.15°C: the temperature at which atoms cease to move.
It's not known whether it will ever be possible to reach absolute zero, but that hasn't ...
