Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
A temperature measured from absolute zero in kelvins.
- ‘In this particular system, the absolute temperature of an ideal gas is directly proportional to the average kinetic energy of the molecules.’
- ‘Here, k is the Boltzmann constant, T the absolute temperature of the solution, and Î • the solvent viscosity.’
- ‘At constant pressure the volume of a given mass of gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature, that is the temperature expressed in Kelvin.’
- ‘The intensity of a heat stress is determined by the absolute temperature, the rate of heating and the length of time at damaging temperatures i.e., the thermal dose.’
- ‘Entropy is a thermodynamic quantity, its value is equal to the amount of heat absorbed or emitted divided by the thermodynamic temperature (the absolute temperature, in Kelvin).’
