Who thought of temperature?
Asked in Planet Jupiter
What is Jupiter's temperature compared to earth?
At the upper edge of the cloud cover, the temperature is thought to be -145 degrees C. On Jupiter the temperature increases because of atmospheric pressure, so as you descend temperature increases. Not far into the atmosphere the pressure is about ten times what it is here on Earth and the temperature is thought to be about 20 degrees C or average room temperature for Earth. Descend further and the temperature is thought to be over 9,700 C.s

Asked in Science
How did Anders Celsius invent his temperature scale?
How did the Fahrehenheit system of measuring temperature come about?
The Fahrenheit temperature scale is based on the temperatures that Mr Fahrenheit considered to be significant. He thought that if you put enough salt into ice you could get it down to "absolute zero", so he put a lot of salt into a a large volume of ice and he measured the coldest temperature he could get. He called that "zero". He thought that the next most important temperature would be the temperature of the human body. He measured HIS temperature and called that 100 degrees. Of course, his temperature was a little high, so he probably had a slight fever. It's interesting that the Fahrenheit scale was based on flawed science, and we still use that scale today. When will the U.S. convert to metric?
