What's impossible about it? You do realise that 0 is an annihilating element, right?
3. 0 degrees what? Celcius, Kelvin, or American?
4. Convert 0 degrees to another unit double that and convert back to degrees celcius

hopefully i'm not wrong
6. Twice as cold doesn't really make sense. The first thing that comes to mind is what thefatone did but that's more "half as hot" rather than "twice as cold". Heat is energy, cold is the absence of that heat, it isn't really a thing in and of itself
7. What do you mean by twice as cold? If you mean that the gas particles have half as much kinetic energy then thefatone is right.
Edit: no, it depends on if you're working in Celsius or American degrees

Kelvin isn't a degree measure.
