Question

Each of the following items states a temperature, but does not tell you whether the temperature is measured on the Fahrenheit, Celsius, or Kelvin scale. Match the items to the appropriate temperature scale.1. A hot summer day might be 100.2. Ice cream is stored in freezers at 26.3. Liquid wate rboils at 100.4. Water freezes into ice at 0.5. A typical room tempertature is 24.6. Water boils into gas phase at 373.15.7.The coldest possible temp is 0.

1) 100.2 F

2)26.3 F

3) 100.4 °C.

4) 0.5 °C.

5) 24.6 °C.

6)  373.15 K.

7) 0 K.

Explanation:

Let’s evaluate each case:

1) Hot summer day: 100.2 F that is equal to 37.9 C, which makes sense.

2) Ice cream: 26.3 F, that is -3.2 C and it makes sense.

3) Liquid water boils: We know that the boiling point of the water is around 100 C. So it is 100.4 C.

4) Water freezes into ice: We know that the freezing point of the water is around 0 C. So it is 0.5 C.

5) Typical room temperature. Room temperature at normal conditions is around 25 C, so we have 24.6 C.

6) Water boils into the gas phase. From point 3) the boiling point of water is 100 C, which is equal to 373.15 K.

7) The coldest possible temperature, according to the third law of thermodynamics is 0 K, which is equal to -237 C.

I hope it helps you!
