Chem 1010 notes Chase Bobier 1-28-16, Week three Important terms Things you need to know Temperature Scales. Temperature is the measurement of how much heat something puts out. The below table will illustrate the three main units for measuring heat. Scale Abbreviatio System Freezing Boiling n Point of Point of 2 H2O H O Fahrenheit F° Empirical 32°F 212°F Celsius C° Metric 0°C 100°C Kelvin K Absolute 273 K 373 K Temperature Conversions: C to F: F=1.8C+32 F to C: C= F−32 1.8 C to K: K=C+273 Methods of conversion. In earlier classes the subject of converting a measurement of one thing to another, and these are the methods by which conversion is done. The first is equivalency statements which mean that so much of one measurement is equal to 1 unit of another. An example of one is: 12in=1ft (12 inches equals 1 foot) The second is the conversion factor, set up as a fraction (an 12∈ ¿ example: 1 ft). Conversion factors are used in the ¿ system of conversion that I am about to show you, called factor labeling. Say that you had 4.0 ounces of mercury and you needed to know how many mL it was. This is how you would set that up: 4.0oz✖ 1g ✖ 1mL =8.4mL 1 0.035oz 13.6g For further information, complete the worksheet on conversions that was handed out in class.
