pulkit Posted July 23, 2004 Share Posted July 23, 2004 Imagine a hypothetical situation where absolute zero is indeed achieved. In this situation does theory predict all motion to cease or will motion still exsist. I ask this bcoz of the following two points (which i found to b slitely contradictary) : 1. Kinetic energy of atoms is directly proportional to temperature, hence abs 0 shud imply no motion. 2. In quantum mechanix, the heisenberg principle would not allow for such a situation however bcoz that wud mean no uncertainty in either position or momentum. Where am I going wrong ?
