Does it ever make sense to say that one object is “twice as hot” as another? Does it matter whether one is referring to Celsius or kelvin temperatures? Explain.

Yes , it matters whether we are referring to Celsius or kelvin temperatures while saying that one object is “twice as hot” as another.

Step 2 of 3</p>

As the ice point on the celsius scale is at and the steam point is at , where the number of divisions on the celsius scale is 100. Therefore, each division is equal to the change in temperature of one degree celsius().

Similarly in case of Fahrenheit scale, the ice point on the Fahrenheit scale is at and the steam point is at , where the number of divisions on the Fahrenheit scale is 180. Therefore, each division is equal to the change in temperature of one degree kelvin is ().

Therefore,as the single divisions in both the scales are different. It matters whether the body is twice as hot as other in celsius and Fahrenheit scale.
