PSV: Interconvert between different temperature scales

Temperature

DEFINITION:

Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the molecules in a substance.

Measure temperature using physical properties of substance that change as a function of temperature:

Temperature scales are defined in terms of these (and other) phenomena:

Common temperature scales:

Converting temperatures:

NOTE:

Converting temperature differences is slightly different (the additive corrections calcel out!).

OUTCOME:

Interconvert between different temperature scales

TEST YOURSELF!

Convert 20C to F. How about R? Convert -40C to F :)
