If you could 'freeze' a gas to absolute zero then it would have no energy, right?
By Charles'Law we know that,v=v0+(t/273)*v0Therefore, at 0K (lowering from 273K) the volume of the gas in question, i.e. the ideal gas, will be 0People say that the volume does not go 0. Thus it violates the Charles' Law! Yet people say it hold at all temperatures, and say(at least my teacher does) that there can be theoretically negative volume also!But i want to know what exactly are the changes that happen when the temperature of such low degree, and if we should put a limit to the validness of this law.Thank you!And may it freeze! I am melting here! 313K here at this moment....[MOD EDIT - PLEASE PHRASE YOUR THREAD TITLES AS QUESTIONS, IN LINE WITH FORUM POLICY. THANKS. CHRIS]
