# Temperature

## Problems

### practice

- Write something.
- Write something else.
- Write something different.
- Write something completely different.

### conceptual

- Two related questions — version one (one international, one Anglo-American).
- What would a graph of the Celsius temperature scale look like when plotted against the kelvin scale (Celsius on the
*y*axis and kelvin on the*x*axis)? What slope would the graph have? What*y*intercept? - What would a graph of the Fahrenheit temperature scale look like when plotted against the kelvin scale (Fahrenheit on the
*y*axis and kelvin on the*x*axis)? What slope would the graph have? What*y*intercept? - Superimpose the two graphs. Where do they intercept?

- What would a graph of the Celsius temperature scale look like when plotted against the kelvin scale (Celsius on the
- Two related questions — version two (one international, one Anglo-American).
- What would a graph of the kelvin temperature scale look like when plotted against the Celsius scale (kelvin on the
*y*axis and Celsius on the*x*axis)? What slope would the graph have? What*y*intercept? - What would a graph of the Fahrenheit temperature scale look like when plotted against the Celsius scale (Fahrenheit on the
*y*axis and Celsius on the*x*axis)? What slope would the graph have? What*y*intercept? - Superimpose the two graphs. Where do they intercept?

- What would a graph of the kelvin temperature scale look like when plotted against the Celsius scale (kelvin on the
- Two related questions — version three (Anglo-American only).
- What would a graph of the Celsius temperature scale look like when plotted against the Fahrenheit scale (Celsius on the
*y*axis and Fahrenheit on the*x*axis)? What slope would the graph have? What*y*intercept? - What would a graph of the kelvin temperature scale look like when plotted against the Fahrenheit scale (kelvin on the

### numerical

- The Homigrade (human scale) temperature scale was invented by the American physician, Franklin E. Aspinwall, in 1918. He assigned a temperature of 0 °H to the normal freezing point and 270 °H to the normal boiling point of water.
- What is average body temperature (37 °C) in Homigrade degrees?
- What is room temperature (20 °C) in Homigrade degrees?
- Convert 0 °F to °H.
