Homework Help: Absolute zero founder

  1. Oct 12, 2005 #1
    This is a pretty straight forward question. Does anyone know who exactly first determined the value of absolute zero and when it was. I am getting conflicting information about it.

    this is not a question i have to answer, just a little bit of information i would like to include in a physics lab report i am working on.

    Wikipedia generally is reliable since it is somewhat "peer-reviewed", so it is constantly viewed by the general public of which will include people who do know stuff about it. You can quickly cross check facts shown in Wiki by doing a google search for it and see what other sites have to say.
