Help on celsius napster!!

I was wondering how do degress on the celsius scale compare to those on the Kelvin Scale?


Thanx.:smile:

Answer

You can convert from any type of temp. to other with this equation ...

C/100 = (F-32)/180 = (K-273)/100

C is the celsius, K is the Absolute, F is the Feh. Temp.

C/100 = (F-32)/180 = (K-273)/100
Multiply the first and last expressions by 100 to get:

C=K-273

The only difference between C and K is the zero point.

Know That ...

I know, but i wanted to give the general way

Oh, can you guys also state the comparisson in a sentence not just the formula.

Read my last post again, specifically the last sentence.

Are you sure? Then is there a specific point for say writing 1c=1k if k is same thing as C anyways.

And one other thing just to make sure. What's the definition of the term "absolute zero?".

oh 1 thing, wats the zero point for the Kelvin and celsius scale?

When I say that Kelvin and Celiuse are identical except for the zero point I mean a 1 degree C CHANGE = 1 degree K CHANGE

The zero point of Celuis is the freezing point of water. The Zero point of Kelvin is Absolute Zero.

Absolute Zero is theoretical point at which all atomic motion ceases.

ohh

So to convert C into K you simply add 273.

Say the melting point of water is 0c so to covert it to K you add 273 ,so it will be 273K right?


BTW what's the avg. human body temp.? 30c?

heh

Humans Body Temperature Is 37 C, Or 310 K,

LOL !! Cool Question, I'm wondering how old are you :P
