Kelvin

Kelvin

(Science: unit) a temperature scale where zero degrees corresponds to absolute zero (no thermal energy), degrees have same size as in Celsius/centigrade scale. 273.16 k = zero c, 373.16 = 100 c.

Abbreviation: k British physicist who invented the kelvin Scale of temperature and pioneered undersea telegraphy (1824-1907).The basic unit of thermodynamic temperature adopted under the Systeme international d'Unites.A unit of measurement where one kelvin equals one degree Celsius, and 0 Kelvin's is absolute zero (-273.15 celsius).

... or in its explosion as a supernova. Fred Hoyle worked this out in detail in the 1950s. 2) Even the first estimates of the age of the Sun by Lord Kelvin in the 19th century (before nuclear fusion was know) gave an estimate bigger than 30000 years. The Earth's magnetic field varies all the time. ...

Re: SOS...please help, Na+/H+ pump problem

... pump is disabled. So, what you need to know is: Since Vm = -70mV [H+]in =6.3 *10^-8 M [H+]out=4*10^-8 M [Na+]in=12mM [Na+]out=145mM T=37C or 310 Kelvin R=1.987 cal/mol-deg K Vm=-70mV or -0.07V Faraday=23063 cal/mol-volt using nernst equation Ev=(RTln[Xout]/[Xin])/F you have: -70=(1.987*310*ln(145/[Nain])/23063 ...
