The situation is diagramed in Fig. 1.10. First, we want to convert 98.6°F to the Celsius scale. The number of Fahrenheit degrees between 32.0°F and 98.6°F is 66.6°F. We must convert this difference to Celsius degrees: 5°C 66.6°F X - = 37.0°C 9°F Thus 98.6°F corresponds to 37.0°C. Now we can convert to the Kelvin scale:
