where [omega] is the loading frequency, k is the Boltzmann constant, n is the number of molecules per unit volume, [[eta].
Instead, the Conference suggested that it was "possible to redefine the kelvin so that it is linked to an exact numerical value of the Boltzmann constant k," which links temperature to mechanical energy.
The kelvin, symbol K, is the unit of thermodynamic temperature; its magnitude is set by fixing the numerical value of the Boltzmann constant to be equal to exactly 1.

Examples include microwave resonance measurements for development of a pressure standard (1), measuring the Boltzmann constant (2), and acoustic gas thermometry (3).
The first term in this equation is the enthalpy contribution of the activation energy, where k is the Boltzmann constant, h--the Planck constant, and T--the absolute temperature.
B] is the Boltzmann constant, h the Planck constant and T the supposed rapid thermodynamically equilibrated t-sliced locally flat instantaneous cosmological substratum temperature.
