Absolute temperature is defined as the measurement of temperature beginning at absolute zero on the Kelvin scale.
An example of when one might use absolute temperature as a form of measurement is in the study of thermodynamics.
temperature measured from absolute zero on the Kelvin scale or on the Rankine scale
Temperature measured or calculated on a scale, especially the Kelvin scale, with absolute zero as the minimum.
- Thermodynamic temerature; measuring of cold and heat on the absolute scale and using Kelvins.
