Three main scales are discussed in chemistry.
- Fahrenheit: Part of the system of English Units and commonly used in the USA.
- Kelvin: The SI Unit for fundamental temperature scale.
- Celsius: The common temperature scale for most of the world.
- Kelvin degrees (i. e., temperature differences on the Kelvin scale) are the same as Celsius degrees).
- Absolute zero was originally proposed by Joseph Lambert in 1779
Temperature Scale Conversions
- Water freezes at 273.15 K (i. e., on the Kelvin scale), so to convert from Celsius to Kelvin, you add 273.15.
- To convert from Kelvin to Celsius, you subtract 273.15.
