Hi everyone. It’s Wednesday, and another set of Chemistry problems have been uploaded to YouTube. You can find them here.
I looked at conversions between the different temperature scales used by scientists and engineers. Both Rankine and Kelvin use absolute zero as a zero point. The difference between the two is that one degree Rankine is equal to one degree Fahrenheit, while one degree Kelvin is equal to one degree Celsius. The Rankine and Fahrenheit scales were primarily used by American and English scientists.
Absolulte zero is the lowest temperature, period. It’s where the Ranking and Kelvin scales start, which means the lowest possible temperature on the Celsius scale is – 273.15, or -459.67 Farhenheit. If you’re interested in learning a bit more about absolute zero, take a look at this YouTube video.
Hope you enjoyed this. Peace to all.
