 Cue Notes Fahrenheit Scale   Celsius Scale   Absolute Zero   Kelvin Scale     Converting btn K & C         Converting btn C &  F the one we're used to in U.S. Water f.p. = 32, b.p = 212 metric scale - used in most of world Water f.p = 0, b.p. = 100 lowest possible temperature   S.I. scale, based on absolute zero abs 0 is 0 Kelvin.  water f.p = 273 K, b.p. = 373 K   K & C have the same size degrees, they're just offset by 273.15 degrees (273 rounded). K to C: K - 273 = C C to K: C + 273 = K   Between freezing & boiling points of water: 100 degrees C, 180 degrees F.  So C degrees are 1.80 times as big as F degrees. C to F:  F = 1.80 x C + 32 F to C:  C = (F - 32)/1.80   Point of reference: "room temp" of 68 F is 20 C. Summary Celsius & Kelvin scales used in science.  Converting between C & K is just adding or subtracing 273.  Converting between C & F use simple formula.  Converting between K & F, convert to C first.
