Fun Fact: Water can exist in 3 states at 0 celsius. Liquid, solid and gas.

1. repost
2. retarded
fahrenheit: based on ******* nothing,
celsius: based on freezing and boiling point of water, completely logical for most measurements.
kelvin: based on the movement of the molecules, completely logical for experiments in chemistry/physics

1: some people may not have seen it. so shut up. because i found it funny.
2: its not saying which is best, its comparing them.

I prefer Celsius and all that but isn't Fahrenheit based on the freezing and boiling point of saltwater or have I been lied to?
User avatar #208 to #130 - skidz (08/01/2012) [-]
0 degrees Fahrenheit was the coldest temperature Danial Fahrenheit was able to record.
#133 to #130 - anon (08/01/2012) [-]
You have been lied to, boiling point and freezing point of saltwater is about 1-3 degrees celsius more than fresh water.
#212 to #112 - Landonlasater (08/01/2012) [-]
Isn't Fahrenheit based off of how people would perceive it? Say it's 50 degrees F outside (10 C) So it's about a 50 50 of being Hot and cold. I may be just a dumbass
don't hurt me
User avatar #242 to #212 - semisane (08/01/2012) [-]
I don't remember EXACTLY, but it's based on 3 points that are ridiculously arbitrary. To wikipedia!
here's what it says
According to an article Fahrenheit wrote in 1724, he based his scale on three reference points of temperature.[8] In his initial scale (which is not the final Fahrenheit scale), the zero point is determined by placing the thermometer in brine: he used a mixture of ice, water, and ammonium chloride, a salt, at a 1:1:1 ratio. This is a frigorific mixture which stabilizes its temperature automatically: that stable temperature was defined as 0 °F (−17.78 °C). The second point, at 32 degrees, was a mixture of ice and water without the ammonium chloride at a 1:1 ratio. The third point, 96 degrees, was approximately the human body temperature, then called "blood-heat".[10]

Celsius is the most advanced measuring system because its 0 is the exact temperature of water turning to ice and it's 100 is the exact temperature of water boiling.   
Hooray for Celsius.

Kelvin >celcius, 0 in kelvin is actually zero, meaning absolute zero. Everything freezes. Also. Celsius is just kelvin + 274.

KELVIN IS THE REAL **** .
User avatar #235 to #177 - rhc (08/01/2012) [-]
that's true; kelvins are better for calculations, but celsius makes more sense in everyday life.

Water boils at 373 degrees kelvin.
Kelvin = Celsius + 273 , simple really.
Because the lowest temperature ever achieved is -273 celsius which is known as the absolute zero.

the thing is, 0 degrees celsius is much more comprehensive than 273 kelvins. sure, the conversion is easy, but you still have to make that small calculation every time. if the temperature mostly only ranges between 273 and 373, it makes sense to just make the lower extreme 0, and the upper 100.
#343 to #337 - emplon (08/01/2012) [-]
We have not achieved -273, its actually impossible to achieve 0 kelvin.
#348 to #343 - Mozzak (08/01/2012) [-]
And nothing is impossible,we just NEED MORE SCIENCE :D

Yeah,sorry,you're right.But we have achieved temperatures very close to the absolute zero.
#339 to #177 - emplon (08/01/2012) [-]
while what you say is true, there is nothing that can freeze at absolute zero because nothing can have that temperature.

#190 to #86 - anon (08/01/2012) [-]
Kelvin is the only one that makes sense. Why? Because they all measure heat. You can't have negative heat. Imagine if other measurements were like Celsius and Fahrenheit, if 2liters = 0 I could have a negative amount of water. Which sounds stupid.

KPH is easy to convert into mph, 1 mile is like 1.6km, so you can always just multiply whatever the kph is by 1.5, which is easy enough to do for any number

Fahrenheit - Temperature largely unknown so arbitrarily invented units.
Celcius - Sensible unit size discovered, relative scale still unknown so zero degree point arbitrarily assigned to water freezing temp.
Kelvin - Proper zero degree point found to be at -273.1 Celcuis.

None are any easier or more difficult than the others, they're just what you're used to. Get over it.

actually at 100C in a sauna really will kill you in 30 minutes tops. If your blood temp hits over 38C you go into a coma and die.
User avatar #412 to #406 - beanmaniac (08/01/2012) [-]
if you enter and exit in less then a minute but to sit an 3 hours in a room that is 100*C its death 100%

well yes not more then 30 minutes(and i dont know how it needs to be but the sauna i was in was about 80*C)
again i say you might live maybe even 2 hours in 100* if you are young an healthy but you cant live for ever not even a day in 100*
User avatar #422 to #421 - ihasapie (08/01/2012) [-]
There are 120 and 150 degree saunas...
And 1 hour is possible, but not a good idea...
So it's possible to stay alive a few hours in 100 degrees, but too long can also cause death
