The three common temperature scales in use today are the Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin scales.

The Fahrenheit Scale

The Fahrenheit temperature scale is based on 32 °F for the freezing point of water and 212 °F for the boiling point of water, with the interval between the two being divided into 180 parts.

The Celsius Scale

The Celsius temperature scale is based on 0 °C for the freezing point and 100 °C for the boiling point of water, with the interval between the two being divided into 100 parts.

The formula for converting a Celsius temperature to Fahrenheit is: F=95C+32.

To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, use the formula C=59(F–32).

The Kelvin Scale

The solid, liquid,...
