Problem 3P

Determine the kelvin temperature for each of the following:

(a) human body temperature;

(b) the boiling point of water (at the standard pressure of 1 atm);

(c) the coldest day you can remember;

(d) the boiling point of liquid nitrogen (−196°C);

(e) the melting point of lead (327°C).

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 6</p>

In the given problem, we need to calculate the temperature in kelvin scale using the given  different temperatures in celsius scale under different conditions.

To convert from Celsius to Kelvin scale,

 + 273.15

Where  and are the temperatures in kelvin and celsius scales respectively.

Step 2 of 6</p>

(a) human body temperature;

The human body temperature in celsius scale is

To convert into kelvin using above equation,

                                         + 273.15

                                        

Therefore, the human body temperature in kelvin scale is .

Step 3 of 6</p>

        (b) the boiling point of water (at the standard pressure of 1 atm);

The boiling point temperature of water in celsius scale is

To convert into kelvin using above equation,

                                        100 + 273.15

                                        

Therefore, the boiling point temperature of water in kelvin scale is .
