40 degrees fahrenheit is about 4.4 degrees celsius, while 10 celsius is 50 degrees fahrenheit so 40 fahrenheit is the colder temperature. The formulas to convert between celsius and fahrenheit temperatures (where F is the Fahrenheit temperature and C is the Celsius temperature in degrees) are as follows: Celsius to Fahrenheit: F = C × 9/5 + 32 Fahrenheit to Celsius: C = (F − 32) x 5/9

20 C is colder.

Five degrees Celsius is colder.

Yes because 33 degrees Fahrenheit is almost freezing point

yes. If you drew these 2 numbers onto a number line, starting from -20 and going to 0, -19 would be further to the left, making it a colder temperature.

The freezing temperature of water is 0 degrees celsius or 32 degrees fahrenheit so it is colder than the freezing temperature of water.

0 degrees Celsius is a colder temperature than 40 degrees Celsius. 0 degrees Celsius is the freezing level for water. Any positive number above 0 degrees Celsius is a warmer temperature.

-18 degrees Celsius is colder because it is farther below freezing, which is 0ºC

10 degrees Celsius because that is 10 degrees warmer than the freezing temperature (which is 0 degrees Celsius) where as Fahrenheit would be 23 degrees colder than the freezing temperature (which is 32 degrees Fahrenheit)

yes its obvious that 19degree is colder

Yes, the more lower the temperature is, the more colder it is.

Temperature in Celsius can be negative. 0 degrees is freezing point in Celsius, so it is possible to get -1, -10 degrees, etc. However, not all temperatures in Celsius are negative.

No, as 20 degrees Celsius is about normal room temperature. Temperature Fahrenheit = Temperature Celsius(1.80) + 32

That's fairly cold; colder than the freezing point of water.

No, but they are related. Absolute zero is the coldest possible temperature. Absolute temperature is the temperature above this coldest possible temperature - i.e., how much hotter is it than the coldest theoretically possible temperature. Celsius temperature isn't absolute. It starts from the temperature of freezing water, and it needs negative numbers for anything colder than that. Fahrenheit temperature isn't absolute. It says that zero is 32 degrees colder than freezing water, and it needs negative numbers for anything colder than that. Absolute temperature starts from absolute zero. Nothing is colder than that, so absolute temperature is never a negative number.
