A scale of temperature measurement in which zero degrees is absolute zero.



Related Terms

ABSOLUTE TEMPERATURE

The fundamental temperature scale with its zero at absolute zero and expressed in degrees Kelvin. One degree Kelvin is equal to one degree Celsius or one degree Centigrade. For the purpose of practical calculations in order to convert Celsius to Kelvin add 273. It is normal for the degree Kelvin to be abbreviated in mathematical formulae to ‘K’ with the degree symbol being omitted.

CELSIUS

A temperature scale with gradients between the freezing and boiling points of water are divided into 100 equal parts.

THERMOGRAPHY

The use of infrared thermography whereby temperatures of a wide variety of targets can be measured remotely and without contact. This is accomplished by measuring the infrared energy radiating from the surface of the target and converting this measurement to an equivalent surface temperature.

CONVERSION SCALE

A scale for the conversion of units of one measurement to equivalent units of another measurement.

GRATICULE

  1. The network of lines representing parallels and meridians on a map, chart, or plotting sheet. A fictitious graticule represents fictitious parallels and fictitious meridians. 2. A scale at the focal plane of an optical instrument to aid in the measurement of objects.

KELVIN TEMPERATURE

Temperature based upon a thermodynamic scale with its zero point at absolute zer

FAHRENHEIT TEMPERATURE

Temperature based on a scale in which, under standard atmospheric pressure

ABSOLUTE ZERO

The temperature at which the volume of a gas theoretically becomes zero and all thermal motion ceases. It is generally accepted as being -273.16°C.

ABSOLUTE ZERO TEMPERATURE

Temperature measured from absolute zero (-459.67°F, or -273.16°C).

CELSIUS TEMPERATURE SCALE

Temperature scale of 0o (freezing water) to 100o (boiling water). Celsius = (Fahrenheit - 32) x 5/9.
