Question

Death Valley holds the record for the highest recorded temperature in the United States. On July 10, 1913, at a place called Furnace Creek Ranch, the temperature rose to Th = 134°F. The lowest U.S. temperature ever recorded occurred at Prospect Creek Camp in Alaska on January 23, 1971, when the temperature plummeted to Tc = −79.8°F.
A) Convert these temperatures to the Celsius scale.

## Answers ( )

A) The formula used to convert from degrees fahrenheit to degrees celsius is °C = 5/9 (° F – 32)

Thus, 5/9 (134°F-32)

5/9=0,55

=0,555 * 102°F

=56,66 °C

B) 5/9 (-79.8°F-32)

=0,555 * -111,8

=-62.11 °C

A) The formula used to convert from degrees Celcius to degrees Kelvin is °K = °C + 273.15

56,66 °C + 273.15

= 329.81 °K

B) K = -62.11 °C + 273.15

=211.04 °K
