ºK
<n> Science;

ºKelvin is the scale used in science on the same incremental level as celsius with its reference point 0 being absolute zero (-273ºC), as opposed to celsius which has the reference at the freezing point of water (0ºC).

--> most people only know of two temperature measurements, Farenheit and Celsius. But there are in fact three, Kelvin being the third.
