Business / Search Engine Optimization (SEO) / Absolute Link: A link which shows the full URL of the page being linked to. Some links only show relative link paths instead of having the entire referenced URL within the a href tag. Due to canonicalization and hij MORE

Absolute Zero

Science / Chemistry / Absolute Zero: (0 K) The temperature at which the volume of an ideal gas becomes zero; a theoretical coldest temperature that can be approached but never reached. Absolute zero is zero on the Kelvin scale, -273.15° MORE

Absolute Temperature

Science / Chemistry / Absolute Temperature: Temperature measured on a scale that sets absolute zero as zero. In the SI system, the kelvin scale is used to measure absolute temperature. MORE

Absolute Instability

Science / Weather / Absolute Instability: When the lapse rate of a column of air is greater than the dry adiabatic lapse rate. The term absolute is used because this applies whether or not the air is dry or saturated. MORE

Absolute Error

Science / Chemistry / Absolute Error: Absolute uncertainty. Compare with relative error. The uncertainty in a measurement, expressed with appropriate units. For example, if three replicate weights for an object are 1.00 g, 1.05 g, and 0.9 MORE

Absolute Humidity

Science / Weather / Absolute Humidity: A type of humidity that considers the mass of water vapor present per unit volume of space. Also considered as the density of the water vapor. It is usually expressed in grams per cubic meter. MORE
