The zero of the fahrenheit thermometer is fixed at the point at which the mercury stands when immersed in a mixture of snow and common salt. In Wedgwood's pyrometer, the zero corresponds with 1077 deg on the Fahrenheit scale.

3. The lowest point; the point of exhaustion; as, his patience had nearly reached zero. Absolute zero. See absolute.

(Science: physics) Zero method, a method of comparing, or measuring, forces, electric currents, etc, by so opposing them that the pointer of an indicating apparatus, or the needle of a galvanometer, remains at, or is brought to, zero, as contrasted with methods in which the deflection is observed directly; called also null method.

Re: Irrefutable Facts Against Evolution

... just 2 humans, and when the proven and observed rules of population statistics are applied, the population today would be 2x10^89, or 2 with 89 zeros behind it. So how exactly are you calculating this? There seem to be several mathematical errors and incorrect assumptions here. If there is a ...

Re: Irrefutable Facts Against Evolution

... just 2 humans, and when the proven and observed rules of population statistics are applied, the population today would be 2x10^89, or 2 with 89 zeros behind it. Again, these numbers are derived from population statistics. Population statistics is a science that is entirely based on observation ...
