Unformatted text preview: in some detail here to illustrate methods of problem solving. The three temperature scales are defined and compared in Fig. 1.9. Note that the size of the temperature unit (the degree) is the same for the Kelvin and Celsius scales. The fundamental difference between these two temperature scales is in their zero points. Conversion between these two scales simply requires an adjustment for the different zero points.- = -- -273.15 Temperature (Kelvin) = temperature (Celsius) + 273.15 Fahrenheit Celsius Kelvin Boiling (6) (6) «J point of water f-ri 212°F 7 h-llOO°C 7 f-ri 373.l5K 180 I 100 Fahrenheit Celsius 100 ~~~:ter-ill ,,·F l~ O.C l~ 27315 K-40°C I, 233.15 K l , 1·9 major temperature scales....
