- ‘The third law of thermodynamics states that for a perfect crystal at a temperature of absolute zero on the Kelvin scale the entropy value is zero.’
- ‘On the Kelvin scale, the freezing point of water is 273.15 K and the boiling point is 373.15 K.’
- ‘In fact, to quash all doubts, zero on the Kelvin scale is dubbed absolute zero.’
- ‘This scale, known as the Kelvin scale, has the same intervals as the Celsius scale.’
