Celsius degrees are larger than Fahrenheit degrees.

After -40 degrees. At -40 degrees, the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales are equal. A temperature greater than -40 in Celsius will be smaller than its equivalent in Fahrenheit, but below -40 degrees Fahrenheit, its equivalent in Celsius will be larger.

Celsius degrees are larger than Fahrenheit degrees.

one degree centigrade is greater increase in temperature than one degreeFahrenheit.

- 7.2o Celsius is quite a bit below room temperature. ( about 19o Fahrenheit )

Both scales use "degrees" but they are not the same size.Celsius degrees are larger intervals, so a change in "Celsius degrees" is larger than an identical numerical change in "Fahrenheit degrees."A change of 1 Celsius "degree" is the same change as 1.8 Fahrenheit "degrees", as is seen in the difference between the freezing and boiling point of water. 100 Celsius degrees (0° to 100°C) is the same temperature change as 180 Fahrenheit degrees (32° to 212°F).

3 degrees Celsius is warmer than 30 degrees Fahrenheit.

Not sure what you are asking unless you meant the opposite. 0 in Celsius is +32 in Fahrenheit = freezing 100 in Celsius is 212 in Fahrenheit = boiling point.

Above -40, a number in Celsius is hotter than the same number in Fahrenheit.Greater than -40, any number of degrees Celsius is hotter than the same number of degrees Fahrenheit.

No. While the normal average core body temperature is 98.6, there is a wide variation in what is a normal body temperature. By definition, a fever is considered any temperature greater than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) in adults and children. P.S. It's actually 37 degrees Celsius for a fever

86 degrees is a higher temperature than 68 degrees, on any temperature scale.(It's a greater angle too.)

The Celsius degree (which is also the Kelvin) is equal to 1.8 Fahrenheit degrees.

The average temperature difference between arid and temperate climates is about 30 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer months. The temperature difference is greater during the winter months, because arid climates do not have a defined winter.

Yes. 1 degree of Fahrenheit is 5/9 of a degree Celsius (centigrade)

The freezing temperature of water doesn't change. It just has different names. If you're speaking in Celsius, it's called zero. If you're speaking in Fahrenheit, it's called 32 degrees.

The numerical reading on the Fahrenheit thermometer may be higher, lower, or equal to the numerical reading on the Celsius thermometer. -- If either one reads below -40°, then both do, and the Fahrenheit reading is the lower one. -- If either one reads above -40°, then both do, and the Fahrenheit reading is the higher one. -- If either one reads -40°, then they both read -40°. -- Whatever the temperature, the Fahrenheit reading is always 32° greater than 1.8 times the Celsius reading.

A one degree rise on the Celsius scale is bigger. A one degree rise on the Celsius scale is 1.8 rise on Fahrenheit scale.

No. For temperatures, 45°C is much hotter than 45°F (equal to 7.22°C). Likewise, a change in temperature of 45 "degrees" on the Celsius scale is a much larger change than 45 "degrees" on the Fahrenheit scale. The Fahrenheit "degrees" are smaller intervals. Technically the numbers have the same value, but on different scales.

The design of the Fahrenheit scale uses smaller divisions. The original concept of Dr. Fahrenheit divided the scale into 100 degrees between the coldest temperature he could reliably recreate, a mixture of ice and brine, and the temperature of the human body. (He was off by a bit!) The Celsius scale is 100 degrees between the freezing point of water and the boiling point of water. The Kelvin scale uses Celsius degrees, but is measured from "Absolute Zero", the theoretically coldest possible temperature. At zero degrees Kelvin, all molecular activity would cease. This corresponds to minus 273.15 degrees Celsius or -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit.

Yes, 2oC = 35.6oF and 4oF = -15.555oC
