320Â°F is the same temperature as 160Â°C. The formula is F = 1.8C + 32 For Fahrenheit to be twice the Celsius, let F = 2C Then . . . 1.8C + 32 = 2C 0.2C=32 C = 160Â°
The freezing point of water (at standard atmospheric pressure) has been assigned the value of 0Â° on the Celsius, or centigrade, temperature scale.
320Â°F is equal to the Celsius temperature 160Â°C.. Solved by the algebraic formula F = 2C where F = 1.8C + 32. 1.8C + 32 = 2C / .2C=32 / C = 160 .
Scientists use Celsius scales because.... 1. it was developed specifically for scientific use 2. the metric system is used in measurements by the power of 10, making calculations much more simplistic than the American system of inches, feet, lbs, gallons, etc.
The "scale" of each is infinitely big -- in other words, both have no maximum possible temperature. However, one degree Celsius (Â°C) is larger than one degree Fahrenheit (Â°F).
The other two major scales are Fahrenheit (Â°F, degrees) and Kelvin (K, kelvins), both named for famous scientists as was Celsius for Anders Celsius.
203Â°F. The degree intervals on the Celsius scale number 100 between the freezing and boiling points of water (0Â° and 100Â°), whereas there are 180 intervals between them in the Fahrenheit scale (32Â° and 212Â°).. So the conversion between scales is 1Â° C = 1.8Â°F (9/5Â°). The con…version of temperatures involves adding or removing the 32Â° between starting points and changing the scale of degrees.. T (in Â°F) = (T-32)x(5/9) Â°C and T(in Â°C)= (9/5)xT plus 32Â°. 95Â°C = 95x(9/5) plus 32 = 171+32 = 203Â°F ( Full Answer )
Water can evaporate (enter the air as water vapor) at any temperature above the freezing point of the water. Water BOILS (changes state) at 100 Â°Celsius.
Because it's a lot more sensible than theantiquated Fahrenheit scale which lingers only in you guessed it, the unmetricated USA. The Celsius scale logically has zero degrees as the freezing point of pure water and 100 degrees as the boiling point.
The surface of the Sun (the photosphere) is about 5500Â° Celsius (~5800Â°Kelvin).. The corona (outer atmosphere) has a much higher "temperature", in the millions of degrees, but it is so comparatively tenuous that the effective heat energy is very much less.
Dividing the difference between the freezing and boiling points of water into 100 equal parts.
0Â° on the Celsius scale is the temperature at which water freezes.0Â° on the Kelvin scale is absolute zero (all molecular vibration ata standstill) and 273.15Â° Kelvin is the temperature at which waterfreezes. A movement of one degree in either reflects the sameincrease in temperature. A Cels…ius reading can thus be convertedinto the Kelvin reading by adding 273.15Â° to it. The Kelvin scalesets 0Â°K at minus 273.15Â° Celsius (absolute zero) To convert from Celsius to kelvin you add 273 to the Celsiustemperature to get kelvin. ( Full Answer )
The Celsius scale is based on the freezing and boiling points of water, established as 0Â°C and 100Â°C respectively.
-40 degrees Celsius is -40 degrees Fahrenheit.. The conversion ratio "F = 1.8 C + 32" yields -40x1.8 = -72, plus 32 is -40 again..
... are measures of temperature.. Celsius: Water freezes at 0 o C and boils at 100 o C. Fahrenheit : Water freezes at 32 o F and boils at 212 o F
- 40 is the same in both Celsius and Fahrenheit scales. Temperature Fahrenheit = Temperature Celsius(1.80) + 32
Fahrenheit is used in the Bahamas, Belize, the Cayman Islands,Palau, and the United States and associated territories of AmericanSamoa and the U.S. Virgin Islands for everyday applications(although Puerto Rico and Guam, use Celsius alongside Fahrenheit aswell). Everyone else uses Celsius.
The difference between the Kelvin temperature scale and the Celsius temperature scale is that the Kelvin scale uses Celsius as the degree increments. Also, 0 degrees Kelvin is calibrated to absolute zero (-273 degrees Celsius). One can directly convert from Celsius to Kelvin by simply adding 273.15… to the degrees Celsius. On the other hand, 0 degrees Celsius is calibrated to be the melting point of ice. ( Full Answer )
The Celsius or Centigrade scale was named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701-1744), who developed a similar scale in 1742.
- 273.15 Â°C corresponds to a thermodynamic temperature of 0 (0 K or 0 Â°R) so that would be the lowest temperature on the Celsius scale.
you use it in science and in other pars of the world except in the united states
The Celsius scale is often used in a lot of chemistry equations. When measuring temperature.
It's actually extremely simple and requires just a little bit of algebra. One of the formulae we use is F = 1.8 C + 32 (where 1.8 = 9/5) Just replace F with C so that we want to calculate the temperature at which the F temperature equals the C temperature: C = 1.8 C + 32 Doing the algebr…a we get -.8 C = 32 or, finally, C = -40 ======= A wonderful exposition, resplendent with erudition, elegance, and savvy. But it doesn't answer the question. The question is: The point where the Celsius and Kelvin scales intersect. Answer: They don't. Celsius and Kelvin are 273Â° different at any temperature. But there is a temperature where Celsius and Fahrenheit are the same number. See above. ( Full Answer )
0 C = 273.15 K 325 K = (325 - 273.15) C = 51.85 Celsius
The pure water freezing point (zero degree) and its boiling point (100 degrees) at atmospheric pressure.
Celsius' publication was first made in 1742. After the death of Andreas Celsius in 1744 thermometers with a direct scale appeared in the meteorology reports under different names, such as 'Celsius Novum', and instrument maker Daniel Ekstrï¿½m.
As we know that the relation between T(F) and T(C) is given by: T(F)=9/5*T(C)+32 Now we want to know the point at which T(F) and T(C) both agrees i.e T(F)=T(C) So the above expression becomes, T(F)=9/5*T(F)+32 By solving above we get -40 o C
The Celsius degree uses the boiling and freezing temperature as a base for indicating temperature. 0 degrees Celsius is the temperature at which water freezes and boils at a 100 degrees Celsius. The kelvin degree has the same "amount" of heat between each degree but uses the absolute coldest point a…s zero (-275 C and -463 F). To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius you subtract 38 and divide by 1.8 ( (F-38)/1.8=C) and Celsius to Fahrenheit you take C*1.8+38. The Fahrenheit degree uses human body temperature as base which is approximately 37-38 C and 100 F. ( Full Answer )
Fahrenheit remains the official scale for the following countriesand territories: the Bahamas , Belize , the Cayman Islands , Palau , and the UnitedStates and its associated territories. Everyone else usesCelsius.
I'm not sure but I think it was the other way around 0 degrees was known as boiling point.
It can be used with any temperature. However the Kelvin scale (centigrade based on absolute zero) is often used for very cold temperatures, or for very hot temperatures, where it is practically the same as Celsius.
Start by subtracting 32 from 425 .Then multiply the answer with 5 and divide by 9. In this case the answer is 218.33 degree celsius.
If you mean what is the freezing point of water or the freezing point the weather men refer to , it is 0 0 Celcius
Strictly speaking, the degree Kelvin is the scientific temperature scale, and 0 o C is +273.16 degrees K. The Fahrenheit temperature scale is being used less and less. Only a very few countries fail to use Celsius. So international convenience is the reason.
How would a thermometer that measures temperatures using the kelvin scale differ from one that measures temperatures using the celsius scale?
1Â°C = 1K. So the scales would be identical. However, 0K is absolute zero, or -273.15Â°C. 0Â°C=273.15K So, while the scales are identical, the start point is different. And, the lines would also be off by a fraction of a degree.
How would a thermometer has measure temperatures using the kelvin scale differ from one that measure temperatures using the celsius scale?
The degrees are the same size on both thermometers. But when the two thermometers are side by side and at the same temperature, the number of the reading on the Celsius thermometer is 273.15 higher than the number of the reading on the Kelvin thermometer.
He thought it a good idea for everyday scientific as well as personal use, to divide the range of temperature between freezing and boiling water into 100 "degrees" and call the temperature of freezing water/melting ice Zero.
The Kelvin temperature scale is based on real world conditions while the other two scales are imposed on reality by man. We have almost reached the absolute zero of Kelvin, -273.15 c Celsius with instrumentation. At this extreme lack of heat all atomic/molecular activity stops; which is the definiti…on of absolute 0 and the definition of cold. ( Full Answer )
NO! for all of the gas laws, including charles's law, temperature must be in Kelvin. to convert celcius to kelvin, just add 273. (C + 273 = K)
Absolute zero is defined as 0K on the Kelvin scale and as -273.15Â° on the Celsius scale. This equates to -459.67Â° on the Fahrenheit scale.
It is much more natural, since it doesn't have negative temperatures. The Celsius scale - and the Fahrenheit scale - have negative temperatures, but particles can't really have a negative kinetic energy, for example. Many formulae are simpler if the Kelvin scale is used. As an example, look at the m…aximum theoretical efficiency of a heat engine ("Carnot efficiency"). In such formulae, it can be said that one temperatue is "twice as much as another", or "1.1 times as much", which only makes sense for an absolute scale like Kelvin. ( Full Answer )
Both are used to measure temperature. A difference of 1 degree is the same in both scales. The only difference is the starting point. The lowest possible temperature (absolute zero) is 0 Kelvin; this is equivalent to 273.15 degrees Celsius. Thus, on the Kelvin scale there are no negative temperature…s, by definition.

The Kelvin temperature scale is named after the Belfast-born physicist William Thomson,1st Boron Kelvin. The Celsius scale of temperature is named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. He had developed a similar temperature scale though not the same one.
Because it's easier to use, metric (ie. based on powers of 10) and based on less arbitrary standards than the Fahrenheit scale. Celsius simply takes the freezing point of water at sea level as its zero-point, and defines the boiling point of water at sea level as being a 100 degrees. Celsius was …adopted as the scientific standard by the international community. Also, many formulas and calculations are based upon using temperature with a unit of degrees Celsius. Most countries (except the USA, where the word 'metric' is a swearing word) nowadays use the Celsius scale. ( Full Answer )
An approximate answer is that 0 degrees is the temperature at which pure ice melts, and 100 degrees is the temperature at which pure water boils - both processes at standard one atmosphere. The temperature unit is one hundredth of that range. A more precise, but complicated, answer involves the abs…olute scale (Kelvin) and the triple point of water.

The Celsius temperature scale is NOT a metric measurement, because degrees Celsius is parallel measurement of Kelvin, and Kelvin is not a metric measurement.
T C = T K - 273.15 or: [Â°C] = [K] - 273.15 and [K] = [Â°C] + 273.15
The Celsius scale sets the freezing point of water as zero degreesand the boiling point of water as 100 degrees (hence itsalternative name of the centigrade scale). The Kelvin scale sets aszero the temperature at which an ideal gas would have a volume ofzero, and all thermal motion ceases, so it is …sometimes calledabsolute zero. The other fixed point is then the triple point ofwater, which is set at 273.16 K. The divisions of the two scaleshave the same magnitude. ( Full Answer )
Celsius has negative values because water's freezing point is thezero mark on this scale, and it is possible to get much colder thanthat. The kelvin temp. scale has no negative values.
You need to tell us what temperature you want to convert - and fromwhich temperature scale !
