# Which is greater an increasein temperature of one degree celsius or one degree Fahrenheit?

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

### Which is greater an increase in temperature of 1 celsius degree or an increase of 1 Fahrenheit degree?

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…

### Is Celsius hotter than Fahrenheit?

Any number degrees Fahrenheit greater than -40F is greater than the corresponding number of degrees Celsius when converted between the two. Therefore, beyond this point, any number of degrees Celsius is hotter than the same number of degrees Fahrenheit. For example, 100 degrees Celsius is hotter than 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

### Is 98.7 degrees Fahrenheit considered a fever?

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

### A thermometer calibrated in the celsius scale and thermometer calibrated in the fahrenheit scale are used to measure the same temperature the numerical reading on the fahrenheit themometer?

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 -40Â°, then both do, and the Fahrenheit reading is the lower one. -- If either one reads above -40Â°, then both do, and the Fahrenheit reading is the higher one. -- If either one reads -40Â°, then they both read -40Â°. -- Whatever the temperature, the Fahrenheit reading…

### Why does Fahrenheit scale has a greater number than kelvin scale?

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…

### Is 45 degrees Fahrenheit greater than 45 degrees celsius?

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.

### Does one degree celsius indicate the same change as one degree Fahrenheit?

No. Although both confusingly use the term "degree", the two intervals are not the same. A change of a number of degrees in Celsius would be a much greater numerical change in Fahrenheit. In terms of actual values, a "degree" in Celsius is 1.8 times as large an interval as a "degree" in Fahrenheit. Explanation In Fahrenheit, freezing is 32° and boiling is 212° so there are 180 degrees in between. In the Celsius system…

### The temperature of outer space is about 3K what is this temperature on the celsius and Fahrenheit scales?

The Kelvin scale uses the same degree size as Celsius, but starts 273.15 degrees lower, at absolute zero (in Celsius zero is the freezing point of water). So Kevin temperatures have a numerical value greater by 273.15. 3K equals approximately -270.15°C. By conversion, this is about -454.27°F ( about 5.4°F above absolute zero).

### Which one is greater 0 degrees Fahrenheit or 10 degrees celsius?

The temperature 10 degrees Celsius is much warmer than 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Normally higher numeric values are found on the Fahrenheit scale, with its smaller "degrees". However, the value 0°F is 32 Fahrenheit degrees below the freezing point of water, and is equal to -17.8 °C. The value 10 °C is above the freezing point of water (0°C) and is equal to 50 °F .

### In science explain why more salt will disslove in the water when its temperature is greater?

Sodium Chloride (table salt) is an ionic compound that has a high melting point. The higher the temperature, the more you have reached its melting point, that means the higher the temperature the more the salt will be dissolved. (as long as the temperature is about 801 degrease Celsius, or 1474 degrease Fahrenheit, because that is table salts melting point.)

### What are the advantages of the English system of measurement?

Other than familiarity and easier reference to past documents and measurements, there are few advantages to using non-metric systems. The Fahrenheit scale of temperature has one slight advantage over the Celsius scale, that being the smaller size of its "degrees" (intervals which confusingly have the same nomenclature across several scales). It is possible to express a temperature in whole degrees Fahrenheit with greater accuracy than in Celsius (which has larger degree intervals). Fever temperatures of…

### What does degree mean?

I assume this question refers to either geometric degrees or to temperature measurements. (Not diplomas awarded by post-secondary institutions.) In geometry, a degree is a unit of measure of an angle formed by two intersecting lines. It is defined as 1/360th of a full circle. A quarter of a circle forms a right angle (think 12 o'clock to 3 o'clock) and 90/360 equals 1/4, so a right angle is 90 degrees. When measuring temperature, there…

### How the three temperature scale differ?

There have been many "standard" temperature scales used. These include: Fahrenheit Rankine Celcius (Centigrade) Kelvin Réaumur Newton Rømer Delisle Leyden Dalton Wedgewood Hales Ducrest Edinburgh Florentine Assuming the temperature scales you are referring to are Fahrenheit and Rankine, Celsius and Kelvin which are in use today, they are related as follows: C=(F-32)*(5/9) K=C+273.15 F=C*(9/5)+32 R=F+459.67 By analyzing the equations you can see that the degree unit is different between Fahrenheit and Celsius. The unit degree…

### What temperature is 200 c in Fahrenheit?

To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit, you use: F = 9/5C + 32 To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius you use: C = (F-32) * 5/9 To convert from Celsius to Kelvin, add 273.15. So: 200°C * 9/5 + 32 = 392 °F 200°C + 273.15 = 473.15 K Note... For temperatures between about -30 °(F or C) up to about 100°F, I use the formula: F=2*C+30 or C=(F-30)/2 which I can calculate in my…

### How do you derive the conversion of temperature?

First thing is first, defining the different scales, their basis. Im not sure on the sciency specifics of the definition... but on the Celsius, or Centigrade scale, 0 degrees is defined something along the lines of "freezing point of water". Im not sure at what pressure or purity, but essentially the freezing point. Simiarly, 100 degrees is defined to be the boiling point of water. These are definition. They set the positions of certain particular…

### What characteristics of Earth allow liquid water to exist?

The temperature at and near the surface is greater than 0° Celsius (freezing point of pure water), and lower than 100° Celsius (boiling point of pure water). The atmospheric pressure is high enough to maintain the effective boiling point below the maximum surface temperature (about 67° Celsius), up to an altitude of at least 35,000 feet. There is also a volume of water far greater than the water vapor capacity of the atmosphere at average…
