Unformatted text preview: The temperature conversion from degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius is 5/9(F-32). The temperature conversion from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit is 9/5(C) + 32. The correct value for the slope in decimal form is 1.79 degrees Fahrenheit/degrees Celsius. Error Analysis: A possible source of error is a mulfunctioning temperature guage. This would cause our temperature results to be incorrect. Another source of error would be the level of heat that was used to boil the water. If the hottest part of the flame was not used, the water may not have heated to a maximum level thus changing the highest level at which the water would decrease from. When the temperature level decreased, it was not always recorded at exactly a two degree decrease. Sometimes the recorded decrease was less than two degrees but more than one....
