According to wikipedia :- " Formally, temperature is defined as the derivative of the internal energy with respect to the entropy."(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I always thought entropy is defined in terms of energy and temperature.

IS this true that temperature is defined in terms of entropy and energy?

According to it :- dS = dQ / T

IS this somehow related to the fact that lowest temperature can only be zero as then entropy change will be zero

I found all this connected but somehow cannot put them together. Is kelvin scale defined with the help of this equation???
