CALCULUS Understanding Its Concepts and Methods
Home Contents Index
There are three common temperature scales:
Celsius (centigrade), and
Kelvin. The temperatures at which water at sea
level freezes and boils on these three scales
The unit of temperature is the same in the Celsius and Kelvin scales: a change of one degree Celsius is the same as a change of one kelvin. The temperature on the Kelvin scale, which is degrees below zero on the Celsius scale and degrees below zero on the Fahrenheit scale, is called absolute zero. It's as cold as it gets: there is no temperature below zero on the Kelvin scale.
