thermodynamic scale (ie: Deg Kelvin) with a zero reference of -273.15 deg C.
just a minor, but very important point. The thermodynamic temperature scale (or absolute temperature scale) has a unit of kelvin designated as K, not °K (the degree symbol was officially dropped from kelvin in 1967). The degree symbol should only be used with the Celsius °C or Fahrenheit °F scale.
eg. the triple point of water is as follows in the various temperature scale.
273.16K = 0.01°C = 32.02°F
Just to make the point clear.
