I do not believe that there is an absolute hot. I believe that something so hot, like 100 million million million million million degrees Kelvin can still become hotter. Unlike aboslute cold where all atoms stop I dont think that atoms can have a speed so fast where they disappear.
WOW: talk about confusing! I think that there cannot be a hottest possible temperature because you can always add more energy (and heat!) to something! As long as you can control it and move it, you can make it hotter, right?
There probably cannot be an absolute hot. Unless something become SO hot it just stopped existing. I also don't think people on earth can reach Planck temperature.
I dont think there is an absolute hot because you can always add heat and energy to something. The problem is containing it, there is no way we will ever be able to contain such a hot substance. What does hot not melt if at the correct temperature?
Absolute hot may not exist. Since absolute zero is when particle movement stops, this would imply a temperature where particles could not go any faster. Zero can be interpreted as the opposite of infinity, but unlike zero, infinity essentially lacks a limit.
Wow, that is hot no matter which way you look at it. Even Satan would be scorching in that heat! Personally, I think 10 (32) seems the most likely because its the hottest of all the temperatures there. Although following closely on that supposition is "Who The Heck Knows?"
I think that there is an absolute hot, because things have limits. I think it comes to a point when you can not control it and move it because the object is so hot. Also would we even be able to measure absolute hot?
I have one question about this article. If there is an absolute hot (I'm still not so sure I believe there is) what will happen? With absolute cold we know matter stops... but what will happen with absolute hot? Will matter move faster than the speed of light?
First of all, I would have never thought about this question: how hot is hot? I think that because heat is energy and energy is basically atoms moving that there is no real limit to how high the heat can go because the atoms could then go even faster. I look at it like this, if an atom is like a car and the speed limit on a road is 45, well there is still more potential for the car to go at a higher mph. it's all about manipulating the atoms to go a certain speed and i feel that this is not possible to have a limit on how fast/high they can move. Thankyou!
I think we can reach absolute hot, but I believe there is an absolute hot. The absolute hot, I think, would be to hot to even record. The heat would just evaporate it.
I dont believe that there is a absolute hot. Only because you can always heat something up more then it actually should be. Those are my thoughts about absolute hot.
Interesting article. Given how little we know about theoretical physics at this point, much of the arguments or theories seem more like 'guesstimates'. I would like to know how they were so certain about the temperature post Big Bang.
Interesting! I think it is kinda funny how all the scientists are puzzled. But the hottest temperature is an interesting idea, because i always thought that the sun was the hottest. Now i think you could make things hotter by just adding more energy. So i am curious to see if someone ever is able to answer this question.
Wow. I honestly dont know what to say. It would be pretty cool i guess to reach abosolute hot but how dangerous would that be? and also, what time of environment can stand an "absolute hot"? I thinki scientist should stop looking for abosolute hot because its too dangerouss.
What had caught my eye in this article was when they were talking about the Planck temerpature. An intersting fact I found about this was that the Planck temperature was reached 10-43 seconds after the Big Bang got under way. Planck temperature equals about 100 million million million million million degrees, or 1032 Kelvin. To put that in perspective it's a billion billion times the largest temperature that we have to think about. Now that is extremly HOT!!!!
Wow,Absolute Hot?!Well ,Nope I do not think that there is a absolute hot. Because you can always add more heat to something.
This is an interesting article and i loved reading about the planck scale, which is the highest temperature in convectoinal physics. Its amazing how we have a scale of extreme cold and extreme hot. They also disrcibed the meaning of extreme hot. It would be like boiling,or hellish.
I dont beleive that there is such thing as an absolute hot because matter can absorb an unlimited amount of heat. The atoms would just keep moving faster and faster and never stop absorbing energy.
An opposite to absolute zero seems impossible to achieve. The Planack temperature, in my opinion could still be raised even higher. I believe that while we have a definite point of measurement for absolute zero, heat can continue to rise and rise and rise and we may never be able to reach that.
I think that there can't be an absolute hot. You can make anything hotter. I was confused with the article though.
My opinion is that it would be very nearly impossible to reach absolute hot. I feel that sense absolute zero exists then absolute hot should exist too. It would be so difficult to get too though, it may not be a plausible goal to set.
It amazes me that we can come up with an absolute zero but we cannot come up with an absolute hot. So many different scales of measuring the heat are formed but they can't agree on one of them to say that that is the hottest of the hot, maybe we can never reach absolute hot like we can't reach absolute zero. It really is amazing about how the two most simplest things in life can be so complicated.
I didn't understand most of what they were saying, again, but all these articles use big confusing words, so yeah. Anyways, i think there could not possibly be an absolute hot. I think this because everything we do creates energy and i don't think their is a limit to how much of it we can create. I also think that there is a possible use of heat in the future since we have used it so often in the past. My only concern with heat is that every time we use it we seem to make our enviornment worse (not counting solar energy), if this absolute heat does exist and we do use it, i hope it won't have the same effects as past heat or work powered things.
I think that all the physicists that believe that there is no absolute hot temperature are right. I mean seriously, I think that you can add just infinate amounts of heat and energy! This is WAY different than absolute 0, where everything comes to a stop. The atoms would be in motion at a really fast speed! I think that a point to start for their research could be seeing how fast atoms can go... before... who knows!
I actually do not believe there is an absolute hot. I think that the temperature can just continue to increase higher and higher forever. If we tried to find out an absolute hot anyway.. where in the heck would we test this? I would have to be in outer-space or something to even survive the extreme heat and I doubt we have the money or the means to even attempt this outrageous scheme!
there probably is a an absolute hot, but i dont know. There is definetly something very very very hot though. you could probably reach absolute cold or hot it just takes the time.
Okay, so I was very confused with this article, but I got the general idea of it. I believe there can be an absolute hot and we can eventually reach it. It may be 100 times hotter than the sun, but it might be possible.
I think it is hard to grasp the concept of absolute hot. But I believe it is possible to reach it. Finding out what the hottest temperature is though, will take a long time.
I do not think absolute hot is possible. Absolute zero can be achieved because we have already gotten so close. Absolute hot just sounds rediculous. People would get harmed if they tried to acieve it.
Well this is quite interesting and confusing at the same time. It seems like a reasonable question to ask. But i do not think it is possible because more energy and heat can always be added, whereas in absolute zero, you cannot take away heat that is not there.
A highest temperature seems almost impossible to reach. Being equivalent to the coldest temperature is pretty confusing. To get the highest temp. would have to take a lot of energy.
I have the belief that there is no absolute hot, because the temperatures of 10 30 K, 10 12 K,and 0K have no evidence of them being possibilities of absolute hot. Since the scientists have no proof or have not done any research on absolute hot temperatures, this causes me to believe there is no absolute hot. Until thre is research done in this area of physics, I believe that there is no absolute hot.
The thought of there being a absolute hot is really confusing. I don't think there is an absolute hot temperature because you can always add energy. And I thought it was impossible for energy to go away? I thought it just changed state.
I don't think that an "absolute hot" can be achieved, because absolute zero is a complete absence of heat, whereas there is no such thing as a complete absence of cold. You can always make something hotter, by adding more energy to it.
Just like absolute zero, an absolute hot would be just as hard to achieve. It would be intersesting to see the ideas to reach and opposite to absolute zero. It may seem impossible now, but we will have advancements in the future.
i don't think it's possible to have an absolute hot. things can always have more heat added. there's always a limit to how cold something can get, but heat is something you can't reach a certain amount of.
I think their is a possibility of an absolute hot. There are many theories but I do not think we can currently figure this out for sure. I think something can just keep getting hotter forever.
Wow. I am amazed that there is the possibility of an absolute hot. But since it is easier to make heat than it is to make cold then does that mean we can go to even higher temperatures than absolute hot, even if there is a limit to the amount of rising heat? Also does that mean it will be easier to reach the hottest temperatures ever than to reach absolute zero? And what uses are there for this unlimited heat? Wouldn't it practically vaporize anything within a few miles of it without a trace? Unless there is the slimmest possibility that we could start creating synthetic stars. But I am not sure if that would violate God's laws or not. Oh well, only time can tell this one to us.
I thought that this article was really interesting. Reading through the 5 different "views" on the hottest temperature I think that none of them are exactly right. However, in my opinion Contender #4 was the most interesting. How amazing to think that the hottest temperature could actually be equivalent to the coldest temperature.
I think when it comes to reaching a limit on how hot of a temperature you can reach, you're on a wild goose chase. It's not possible to reach it because there will always be a little bit more heat available to add. It's the same concept with absolute cold in which there's always a little bit more heat to extract.
There is nothing hotter than the sun. If there is I will be amazed. I'll be amazed because there is something hotter than the sun.
I don't think their is an absolute hot. You can always find ways to make things hoter. I mean, when things get to hot they just blow into smaller pieces and get faster.
Interesting but a bit confusing. If there is an absolute hot would we be able to obtain it? What would we be its purpose?
I do believe that there is an absolute hot! We scientist just have to create the right equipment to send us to the sun and we can create it!
I think that absolute hot is not possible because when do you know where absolute hot is. It can keep getting hotter and hotter. Unlike absolute cold which stops when all atoms stop.
This article really makes you think! I came to the conclusion that it seems that an absolute hot could not exist. You could always add more energy and make something hotter. It's as if the only limit to the level of heat would be that we couldn't make it any hotter, and you can not limit something by our own ability.
Wow thats really interesting. I wonder how hot absolute hot would be. I dont even think that it is reachable.
I don't believe that there is an absolute hot because no matter what you can increase the temperature by adding more heat. However, im not sure if it is possible for atoms to get so hot that they dissapear. It will be interesting to see what chemists/physicists in this field discover.
i don't beleive in "absolute hot'. there must b a freezing point where matter stops but there won't b a limit on how fast molecules move. the only limit we have is how hot our technology can make things.
This whole thing is very confusing. What I believe, however, is that it is impossible because you cant go over infinity because it is infinite. One plus infinity just means that infinity is just one more number closer to the infinite (if that makes any sense at all to anyone).
I think it is going to be extremely hard to reach absolute hot. Like absolute cold we are going to keep getting within a billionth of a degree of it. Also I think once reached there is a way to get hotter.
I dont think that there is such thing as an absolute hot. What is it that defines absolute hot? i would like to find out
umm...this is kind of confusing. I guess it says u can keep making stuff hotter with the infinity stuff. I also think its kinda like a big circle because of all that infinity stuff
i do not beleive that there is any such thingas absolute hot. While it COULD be possible to produce such a temperature, it is very unlikely to occur anywhere in the known universe. This is because, as matter [including the atoms in a substance] moves faster, it increases the drag on the matter. So, as the atoms in a substance heat up and begin to move faster, they create drag.
I think that it may be possible to reach an absolute heat. Just in this time and day, we do not have the technology or the knowledge to reach it. Almost all questions can, and almost always will be, answered eventually through science.
I don't think it is possible to get to absolute hot. Because I don't think it is possible to get much hotter than the sun. Also it is also always possible to add more heat to something.
The hottest temperature sounds ifinitly unaccesable. The temperature would not be able to be tested on earth. So the question is where can we expeiment?
To create the hottest tempature sounds impossible (can't you always add heat and energy to something). It would be too dangerous to test and impossible to do it on earth. What would contain it? If it is achieveable maybe we could test it on another planet...
I don't believe its possible to reach absolute hot. I think that no matter how high a temperature was reached it could always become hotter. Also there is no way to test this on the earth.
