CONVERSION B/W DIFFERENT
1.Determine change in T from the ice
point of the given reading from its scale.
2. Convert answer in step 1 using the
conversion factor of the scales.
3. Add or subtract the answer in Step 3
from the ice point of the new scale.
The ice point and boiling point of ⁰A are
-30.0 ⁰A and +60.0 ⁰A respectively. On the
other hand ⁰B has +20.0 ⁰B and +130.0 ⁰B
a). Using the data, determine the number of
B degrees on the B scale that corresponds to
1 ⁰A on the A scale.
b). If the temperature of a substance reads
+40 ⁰A on the a scale, what would the
temperature read on the B scale?
A pan of water is heated from 25C to 80C.
What is the change in its temperature on
the Kelvin Scale and on the Fahrenheit
A time and temperature sign on a back
indicates that the outdoor temperature is -
20C. Find the corresponding temperature
in the Fahrenheit scale.
During a heating process, the temperature
of a system rises by 10C express the rise
in temperature in Kelvin and Fahrenheit.
You place a small piece of melting ice in
your mouth eventually the water converts
from ice at T1=32F to body temperature
T2=98.6F. Express these temperatures as
Celcius and Kelvin, and find change in T in
Absolute zero is the coldest
It is the temperature at
which entropy reaches its
0 R Rankine
Absolute Zero Standards
Scientists have achieved temperatures
extremely close to absolute zero, where
matter exhibits quantum effects such
as superconductivity and
It deals with the concept
of thermal equilibrium.
Two systems are said to
be in thermal equilibrium
if there is
no net flow of heat
between them when they
are brought into thermal
Then, temperature is the indicator
of thermal equilibrium in the sense
that there is no net flow of heat
between two systems in thermal
contact that have the same
