No need to put Celcius in the title. Minus 40 degrees Celcius is the same as Minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit; this is the only temperature where that happens.

It might've been -40 Kelvin though. Y'know, due to the windchill factor.

0 degrees Kelvin is absolute zero. There is no negative on the Kelvin scale.

Didn't someone create a gas that goes below absolute zero, effectively creating a 'negative' Kelvin?

Im not an expert but i doubt it

Everything needs energy to exist, if you have something at zero kelvin it ceases to exist. So to be below Kelvin, i would find that rather extraodinary. Although if you found a source i'd be interested in reading it

Not exactly sure how they did it, but I think it was an imaginary temperature. Like, they were able to induce an electron to leave its place within a substance, and the resulting hole has a small proportion of the temperature, but since it's a hole and not a real particle, its properties are considered the opposite of those of the particle, hence the negative temperature. Or something like that.

-40 Kelvin would ******* kill you in a fraction of a second. To put it into perspective: 0 degrees Kelvin is equal to -273 degrees Celsius

What about Kelvin, also you do need to specify the unit of measurement, or it could be -40 elephants.

Indeed. However, Celsius is far superior in every way, shape and form so people should start using it cross the board.

That makes no sense whatsoever. 0K means the molecules are perfectly still. The molecules can't go any slower than complete stillness, so negative Kelvin can't exist.

I just graduated with a Bachelor's in Cellular Biology and a minor in Public Health. I was also just accepted into Pharmacy school, so I think I would know my physics and my chemistry. Temperature is a measure of the amount of energy a substance has, measured by the movement of particles.

Oh, and **** you for deleting your account for fear of being wrong. Pussy.

there is no point in measuring temperature below 0 K because the net kinetic energy is so low its essentially like the particles aren't moving all or it is inadmissible

While I do agree with you that Creyap is retarded,
Scientists have indeed been able to induce negative kelvin temperatures

That's not possible. The author is misusing terms to claim "negative" temperature in Kelvin.

0K (Zero Kelvin) is ABSOLUTE ZERO. There is no heat energy whatsoever. You cannot have negative quantities of anything, Kelving is a measure of heat energy. Zero kelvin means that the molecules are not moving at all, if there truly was negative degrees kelvin, that would mean negative energy, which would mean the Law of Conservation has been disproven, which would cause probably the biggest scientifical ********* since the heliocentric theorey.

Which goes to show how retarded Fahrenheit sounds too me. Might you know why it is exponential in shape?

Fahrenheit was created based on the human body. But, when it was created, the measurements were off by a couple of degrees. This is why the medical field is really the only field to still use Fahrenheit, at least in America.

It's not exponential in shape. The difference between two degrees in Fahrenheit is smaller than the difference between two degrees in Celsius. So while they are two linear lines, they are not parallel and must intersect at a point.
