The laws of thermodynamics state that absolute zero cannot be reached using only thermodynamic means.
Absolute Zero is the freezing temperature of every known element
Absolute zero is the theoretical temperature at which entropy reaches its minimum value.
Entropy is the tendency for all matter and energy in the universe to change toward a state of inert uniformity the amount of thermal energy not available to do work.
Robert Boyle was one of the first people to talk about absolute zero
Johann Heinrich Lambert did some studies on Absolute zero and he studied and made a n assumption that –270oC was Absolute zero, keeping in mind that this is in the 1779 and the technology at the time wasn’t all the best.
Pierre-Simon Laplace and Antoine Lavoisier, did a written study on heat and found that absolute zero was 1500-3000 below the freezing point of water and they assumed that Absolute zero was At least 600 below freezing point of water
John Dalton Adopted –3000oC as the natural Zero of temperature
Lord Kelvin, William Thomson,devised
a scale of absolute temperature in 1848 which
stated that the properties of and substance
was based on the fundamental laws of
thermodynamics. 0K is the freezing point of
elements and is placed at -273.15oC or -459.67°F
In 1999 at 100 PicoKelvins, 1 billionth of a Kelvin, was the
Closest man made we could get to
Not a single place in the universe is known as 0K the closest
would be the boomerang nebula at 1K which is -272.15oC or
