A unit of measurement named after British scientist,
William Thomson, Lord Kelvin (1824 - 1907). One
Kelvin degree is equivalent to one Celsius degree.
The difference between the two temperature scales:
All motion within an atom ceases at zero Kelvin
(K) -- this point is called absolute zero. Water
freezes at zero degrees Celsius, which is approximately
273.16 Kelvin. [ K = C + 273.16]
