The theoretical temperature is determined by extrapolating the ideal gas law; by international agreement, absolute zero is taken as Ôłĺ273.15┬░ on the Celsius scale (International System of Units), which equates to Ôłĺ459.67┬░ on the Fahrenheit scale (United States customary units or Imperial units). The corresponding Kelvin and Rankine temperature scales set their zero points at absolute zero by definition.
