Fahrenheit Scale A temperature scale usedalmost exclusively in the UnitedStates based on what thehuman body’s temperature wasthought to be ~ 100o(98.7oF) Water freezes at 32oF Water boils at 212oF
Celsius Scale A scientific scale for recordingtemperature that focuses on thefreezing point of water (0o) andthe boiling point of water (100o)at sea level Called Centigrade for its 100graduations
Kelvin Scale A scientific scale for recordingtemperature based on the pointwhere there is no molecularmovement. It starts from absolute zero or -273 oC it increases by the same size degreeincrements as the Celsius scale.
Absolute Zero The Kelvin temperature (-273oC) when all molecular motionstops.
Conversions: To convert from Celsius to Kelvin add273 degrees to the Celsiustemperature 0oC + 273 = 273 K To convert Kelvin to Celsius, subtract273 from the Kelvin temperature. 373K - 273= 100 oC
