# Exploring Absolute Zero and Its Impact on Time: A Theoretical Perspective

• Kry Havoc
In summary, the conversation discusses the concept of absolute zero and its relation to time and movement. The person wonders if an object with no energy could still exist, since time is defined by movement, and if the scientific method breaks down at absolute zero. However, it is clarified that time is not defined by movement and that the scientific method still applies to temperature, even at absolute zero.

as they say, time is defined by movement. you might say, "my eraser is perfectly still in my freezer (why you would put it there is beyond my comprehension)" be we are still moving on tectonic plates, when we are asleep blood circulates through our system and so on, but absolute zero (estimated at around -273.15C and further, and is not physically reachable) is when atoms are estimated to have the lowest amount of energy. I ask, (in theory) if it got so cold to a point where there was no more energy (i estimated at -546.3 C...double absolute zero) would it no longer exist, since time is defined by movement, and as it has no energy therefor movement?

Who says that? It's wrong.

Time is used to quantify the motions of objects, it is not defined by the motion.

"I ask, (in theory) if it got so cold to a point where there was no more energy (i estimated at -546.3 C...double absolute zero)"

A system with negative absolute temperature is actually hotter than any system with positive temperature. You're going to have to clarify what you mean here.

Absolute zero, by definition is the "temperature" at which no movement exists relative to any thing.

Does'nt the scientific method break down at absolute zero, and therefor it being pointless to question the logic of a situation therein using said method?

You could say that "As we approach.." and "It appears.." but any information about that point can never be known with any certainty.

## What is absolute zero?

Absolute zero is the lowest possible temperature that can be reached, at which point all molecular motion stops. It is equivalent to 0 Kelvin or -273.15 degrees Celsius.

## How does absolute zero impact time?

At absolute zero, time would theoretically stop as molecular motion, which is responsible for the passage of time, would also stop. This means that time would not be able to be measured or experienced at this temperature.

## Is absolute zero achievable?

While it is not possible to reach absolute zero in the physical world, scientists have been able to get very close to it in laboratory settings. However, achieving absolute zero is a theoretical concept and may not be possible in reality.

## What are the practical applications of understanding absolute zero?

Understanding absolute zero can have many practical applications, such as in the field of cryogenics where extremely low temperatures are used to preserve and study biological materials. It also helps in understanding the behavior of matter at different temperatures and can lead to advancements in technology and materials.

## What are some potential implications of reaching absolute zero?

If absolute zero could be achieved, it could potentially lead to a better understanding of the fundamental laws of physics and the universe. It could also have practical applications in fields such as quantum computing and space travel. However, the complete cessation of molecular motion at absolute zero may also have unforeseen consequences that are yet to be fully understood.
