Ayriana Davis Determination of Absolute Zero (Experiment #5) Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to find and measure of the kinetic energy (or movement) of particles inside of an object using temperature. For example, when an object has high temperature the object will also have a lot of kinetic energy. When an object has a low temperature it will have a small amount of kinetic energy. The lowest temperature an object can have is when it is not in motion at all. Thus, the lowest temperature an object can have happens when the particles in the object are not moving at all. This temperature represents absolute zero, it is zero Kelvin (the SI unit for temperature), and -273 C° on the Celsius scale. Objectives: In this experiment you will estimate the value of absolute zero. You will use the lab equipment to design an experiment to find the absolute zero of an object. You will also describe your experimental processes and procedure, using any calculations needed.
