Incremental temperature conversions

Postby bcpchem » Wed Aug 22, 2007 9:44 am

I'm pretty sure you'r incremental temperature converter is wrong.


INCREMENTALLY
1k = -273.1 C = -459.7 F
1F = .55555 C = 255.9 K
1C = 1.8 F = -273.15 K

Please fix it.

Incremental conversion answer the question how many degrees in one scale the temperature changes when it is changed that many degrees in the other scale.

By definition, Kelvin and Celsius degree are equal, these two scales only use different zero point. For Fahrenheit zero Celsius is 32 Fahrenheit and 100 Celsius is 212 Fahrenheit. It means that incrementing 100 degrees Celsius is equal to incrementing (212-32)= 180 degrees Fahrenheit. I.e. incrementing 1 degree Celsius is equal to incrementing 1.8 degree Fahrenheit. You can similarly check the other scales. So the conversion is right. :)
