You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers.

Where does the name Kelvin come from?

Kelvin is named after Lord Kelvin (aka William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin) and the Kelvin temperature scale which was named in his honor. As you may remember from high school science class, “absolute zero” is defined as 0 K on the Kelvin scale and is the theoretical temperature at which all molecular motion ceases. Lord Kelvin is widely known for determining correct value of absolute zero as approximately −273.15 degree Celsius or −459.67 degree Fahrenheit.
