What does absolute zero mean

the lowest temperature that is theoretically possible, at which the motion of particles that constitutes heat would be minimal. It is zero on the Kelvin scale, equivalent to -273.15°C or -459.67°F.

What is thermal equilibrium

Thermal equilibrium is when the temperature of a system or organism is equal to the temperature of its surroundings. It is part of the zeroth law of thermodynamics. The zeroth law is" if 2 things are at the same temperature, no heat will flow between them. If they are next to each other, they will be in thermal equilibrium. This means things at the same temperature are the same temperature. For example, if hot tea is in a room where it is cold, the tea will also become cold. If the tea is the same temperature as the room then they will stay the same temperature.
