Expert Answer:

The 'zeroth law' states that 'if two bodies (say A and B) are in thermal equilibrium with another body C, then the bodies A and B will also be in thermal equilibrium with each other'. This law is important as it helps in understanding the concept of temperature.

This means that when two bodies have equality of temperature separately with the third body, they in turn will have equality of temperature with each other.
