SCI 100L
Temperature Lab Exercise
Complete the following questions related to temperature. Attach this exercise to your lab report.
1. There are three scales for temperature. The two most used in meteorology are the Fahrenheit
scale and the Celsius scale. The two are related by using these two formulas:
OF = (9/5) C + 32
.C = (5/9)( F-32)
Example: If T = 50 F, then .C = (5/9)(50 - 32 ) = (5/9)( 18 ) = 10.C
Convert the F temperatures to "C and fill in the appropriate blank on Figure 1 below. Using
the space on each side, show ALL of your calculations.

2. The Wind-Chill Index (or Factor) is the cooling effect of any combination of temperature and
wind which is an expression of body heat loss. Essentially, how cold the wind makes us feel.
