Problem 65P

Perform each temperature conversion.

(a) 212 °F to Celsius (temperature of boiling water)

(b) 77 K to Fahrenheit (temperature of liquid nitrogen)

(c) 25 °C to kelvins (room temperature)

(d) 98.6 °F to kelvins (body temperature)

Solution 65P :

Step 1:

(a) 212 °F to Celsius (temperature of boiling water) :

Steps to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius :

- Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature.
- Multiply this number by 5.
- Divide this number by 9.

Mathematically , it is represented as :

T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) × 5/9

Now, let’s convert the temperature given in °F to Celsius :

Given °F = 212 °F

= 212 - 32

= 180.

= 180

= 100.

Hence, 212 °F in Celsius is 100 oC.
