# Why is Celsius the same as F?

The Fahrenheit and Celsius scales have one point at which they intersect. They are equal at -40 °C and -40 °F. The simple method to find when two temperature scales are equal to each other is to set the conversion factors for the two scales equal to each other and solve for temperature.

## Which is warmer 1 C or 1 F?

In the Celsius scale there are 100 degrees between the freezing point and the boiling point of water compared to 180 degrees in the Fahrenheit scale. This means that 1 °C = 1.8 °F (check the section about temperature differences below).

## Which is colder zero C or 32 F?

Above the line, the air is colder than 0°C. The freezing level is the height where the air is 0 degrees Celsius (0 °C) or 32 degrees Fahrenheit (32 °F). Higher than the freezing level, the air is colder. Lower than the freezing level, the air is warmer.

## Which is warmer 40 C or 40 F?

Answer has 10 votes. They are equally cold. It is at -40 that the two scales give the same reading. “The Fahrenheit and Celsius scales converge at −40 degrees (i.e. −40 °F and −40 °C represent the same temperature).”

## Which is hotter Centigrade or Fahrenheit?

The Celsius scale has 100 degrees between water boiling and freezing, while Fahrenheit has 180 degrees. This means that a single degree Celsius equals 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

## Which is colder 1c or 1f?

For each variation of 1 degree Celsius, there is a corresponding variation of 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. So if the current temperature is 1 degree Fahrenheit, it means the temperature is (32-1)/1.8 = minus 17.22 degrees Celsius. Answer: 1 degree Celsius is hotter than 1 degree Fahrenheit.

## What is twice as cold as zero?

So, if you are measuring in kelvins, twice as cold is not possible. (0/2=0) However, if you are using the Celsius scale, zero degrees is actually 273.15 degrees above absolute zero. So, twice as cold would be -136.575 degrees Celsius. Thus, from zero degrees F, twice as cold would be -229.835 degrees F.

## What is freezing point of water?

We’ve all been taught that water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, 0 degrees Celsius, 273.15 Kelvin. That’s not always the case, though. Scientists have found liquid water as cold as -40 degrees F in clouds and even cooled water down to -42 degrees F in the lab.

## Is 32 Fahrenheit hot or cold?

32°F = 0°C, that’s cold but good, just the temperature we have right now here in Holland take or leave a degree.

## What does 37 mean in thermometer?

For most folks, a thermometer reading around 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees Celsius) means their body temperature is normal.

## What is the coldest Celsius or Fahrenheit?

Yes. 0°C is the freezing point of water, but 0°F is colder than the freezing point of water, because in the Fahrenheit scale water freezes at 32°F. This means 0°F is colder than 0°C. 1 degree of temperature in the Celsius scale represents more of a change than 1 degree of temperature in the Fahrenheit scale.

## What’s colder C or F?

Here is the answer, without further ado: neither. Neither of them is colder: -40° Fahrenheit is exactly equal to -40° Celsius!

## Why is Fahrenheit so weird?

It comes from Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, a German scientist born in Poland in 1686. As a young man, Fahrenheit became obsessed with thermometers. This may seem weird, but measuring temperature was a big problem at the time. Fahrenheit set zero at the lowest temperature he could get a water and salt mixture to reach.

## What’s the temp of absolute zero?

At zero kelvin (minus 273 degrees Celsius) the particles stop moving and all disorder disappears. Thus, nothing can be colder than absolute zero on the Kelvin scale.

## How cold is space?

If atoms come to a complete stop, they are at absolute zero. Space is just above that, at an average temperature of 2.7 Kelvin (about minus 455 degrees Fahrenheit).
