If we interpret the meaning of “twice as cold as 0” to be “containing half as much heat energy as at 0,” a substance with a temperature half way between 0 and -459.67 is the answer: -230 degrees.

Hello D:

You'd think "0" would be the same as other "0's", across the board. But nahhh, it's not. So we'd need to know which particular "0" you're talking about..

In one set of values, "0" is the freezing point of water. In another, "0" would be way colder. Then we get to absolute "0" where all molecular movement stops. You can't get colder than that. There's no such thing as being stopped MORE than your ordinary stop.

The math is thus: 2 x's 0 = 0. 1/2 x's 0 = 0.
