Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics

0th Law of Thermodynamics: Two objects in thermal equilibrium with a third object are also in equilibrium with each other.

The 0th Law of Thermodynamics is called the 0th Law and not the 4th because it is more fundamental than the 1st law but was discovered after the other three. 

This is similar to having three interconnected beakers of water so that the water levels in all three are the same height. Because they are interconnected any change in one gets balanced out so all three end up with the same level.

The reason why this is the case is because heat can flow between all three objects thus an if one gets out of equilibrium the others supply heat to it or  removed heat from it so as to restore equilibrium to all three.

In conclusion the zeroth law is a rather simple concept and it is the most fundamental of the Laws of Thermodynamics.
