Under the absolute, or Kelvin, scale of temperature (which was invented by the British mathematician and physicist William Thomas, first Baron of Kelvin), 0 K (corresponding to -273 degrees C) is the coldest possible temperature and is known as absolute zero.
Minus - 273 C. Temperature at which an ideal gas ceases to exert pressure.
The temperature (-273.15oC or 0 K) at which the volume and pressure of an ideal gas extrapolate to zero.
The lower limit of temperature -459.69°F ( 0301)
Is the temperature where atomic motion ceases.
Temperature at which molecules and atoms have a zero average kinetic energy. It corresponds to 0 K on the Kelvin scale, -273.16o C on the Celsius (centigrade) scale, and -459.69o F on the Fahrenheit scale.

A total absence of heat where molecular motion ceases at approx. -460 degrees Fahrenheit (or -273 degrees Celsius).
The lowest possible temperature in the universe, at which all atomic activity ceases. Equal to -273 degrees Celsius (- 459 degrees Fahrenheit). Used as a benchmark for measuring temperature.
Theoretical temperature at which all molecular activity stops. Deep space is about 3Âº C above Absolute Zero.
