## What is the formula to calculate temperature?

Celsius, Kelvin, and Fahrenheit Temperature Conversions

Celsius to Fahrenheit | ° F = 9/5 ( ° C) + 32 |
---|---|

Fahrenheit to Celsius | ° C = 5/9 (° F – 32) |

Celsius to Kelvin | K = ° C + 273 |

Kelvin to Celsius | ° C = K – 273 |

Fahrenheit to Kelvin | K = 5/9 (° F – 32) + 273 |

## How do you find the final temperature when given the initial?

Add the change in temperature to your substance’s original temperature to find its final heat. For example, if your water was initially at 24 degrees Celsius, its final temperature would be: 24 + 6, or 30 degrees Celsius.

**What is Q in Q MC ∆ T?**

Q = mc∆T. Q = heat energy (Joules, J) m = mass of a substance (kg) c = specific heat (units J/kg∙K) ∆ is a symbol meaning “the change in”

**What are the 3 ways to measure temperature?**

There are three main scales commonly used in the world today to measure temperature: the Fahrenheit (°F) scale, the Celsius (°C) scale, and the Kelvin (K) scale.

### What’s the normal range for body temperature?

The average normal body temperature is generally accepted as 98.6°F (37°C). Some studies have shown that the “normal” body temperature can have a wide range, from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C).

### What is the equation for change in temperature ΔT calculated?

The transfer of heat Q that leads to a change ΔT in the temperature of a body with mass m is Q = mcΔT, where c is the specific heat of the material. This relationship can also be considered as the definition of specific heat.

**What would be the final temperature of the mixture of 50 g?**

Let the specific heat capacity of water be S. Hence, the final temperature of a mixture of 50g of water at 20°C temperature and 50g of water at 40°C temperature would be 30°C.

**Is Q AJ or kJ?**

In general, you can figure it out based on the units of the given C. You typically want q to be in kJ or J. Like Jessica said, in your example problem the C was given in kJ/˚C, so you would only multiply by the temperature. If your C was given in kJ/(˚C*mol), you would use q = nC∆T.

#### What is the tool that measure temperature?

thermometer

A thermometer is an instrument that measures temperature. It can measure the temperature of a solid such as food, a liquid such as water, or a gas such as air. The three most common units of measurement for temperature are Celsius, Fahrenheit, and kelvin.

#### What are the 4 types of temperature?

The Four Types of Temperature Scales

- Fahrenheit Scale. ••• The Fahrenheit scale of temperature is the common form of temperature measurement used in the United States and some parts of the Caribbean.
- Celsius Scale. •••
- Kelvin Scale. •••
- Rankine Scale. •••

**Is 100 a normal body temperature?**

Here are some other definitions related to body temperature: Normal: temperatures between 97.7°F (36.5°C) and 99°F (37.2°C) Low-grade fever: temperatures between 99°F (37.2°C) and 100.4°F (38°C) Fever (pyrexia): temperatures between 100.4°F (38°C) and 105.8°F (41°C)
