Do You Know- Reaching Absolute Zero Temperature is as difficult as attaining Speed of Light

What is the lowest temperature that you have experienced? Our body temperature is 37 degree Celsius. Room temperature is lower than that which is 25 degree Celsius. Fridges are generally at four degree Celsius and ice forms at zero degree Celsius. Can temperature go below zero degree Celsius? Yes. Temperatures below zero degree Celsius are generally measured in Kelvin scale, where 273 K is equal to zero degree Celsius. Temperature of liquid nitrogen is approximately 70 Kelvin and liquid helium is approximately 4 kelvin. As we decrease the temperature, there are many curious phenomena that happen which have significant effects

Thermodynamics’ Ombudsman: Rudolf Clausius

R. J. E. Clausius was born on Jan. 2, 1822, in Köslin, Pomerania. He was the sixth of 18 children of the councilor of the Royal Government School Board C. G. Clausius. He studied in his father’s schools throughout his childhood and graduated from the University of Berlin. He majored in Mathematics, Physics and History. He was famously an extremely sincere student and was well known for his ability to apply mathematical concepts to solve all problems. He got his doctorate on optical effects in the Earth’s atmosphere and explained the reason for the sky’s colour during sunset and sunrise.
