    value of absolute zero or 0K on the kelvin scale. The kelvin scale is a thermodynamic temperature scale has the same increment or magnitude as one degree Celsius however its null point is at absolute zero. At absolute zero temperature, all molecular movement stops, however all actual temperatures are above the absolute zero temperature. The Kelvin scale is named after Lord Kelvin, (William Thompson), a British inventor born in Belfast, Ireland. Lord Kelvin saw the need of a scale that has a null…

    Kelvin dropper Theory A normal uncharged piece of matter has equal numbers of positive and negative electric charges in each part of it, located close together, so no part of it has a net electric charge. The positive charges are the atoms' nuclei which are bound into the structure of matter and are not free to move. The negative charges are the atoms' electrons. In electrically conductive objects such as metals, some of the electrons are able to move freely about in the object. When a charged…

    The Joule-Kelvin effect - the expansion of a real gas This famous experiment performed in 1852 was a follow-up to those of Gay-Lussac (1807) and Joule (1845) and demonstrated that there were indeed attractive forces acting between gas molecules. In theory, if attractive forces do exist then when a gas expands its temperature should drop. The potential energy of the gas molecules has been increased and therefore in an isolated system its kinetic energy, and thus its temperature, should fall.…
