The kelvin temperature scale is an absolute temperature scale with zero at absolute zero. In 1848 william thomson who was later created lord kelvin wrote in his paper on an absolute thermometric scale of the need for a scale whereby infinite cold absolute zero was the scale s null point and which used the degree celsius for its unit increment kelvin calculated that absolute zero was equivalent to 273 c on the air thermometers of the time. The kelvin note the lowercase letter is the base unit of temperature in the international system of units si.
