    Welcome to PF!

    Hi neic! Welcome to PF! :smile:
    'cos when you put in the units of ºC, W|A automatically converted them to ºK before using them! :biggrin:

    Interestingly, you get the same answer in the Celsius-units-included version if you click on the "Celsius degrees of temperature difference" option.

    Well, almost the same answer: 19890 instead of 19894.1.... I guess W|A goes into rounding mode when it sees units.
