Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing temperature measures, part of Easy PHP Projects: Measurement Conversion.
- In this chapter, we will learn to convert…between different systems of temperature measurement.…Temperature is the measurement…of the relative hot and cold…of an object or of an environment.…And there are three primary systems…for measuring temperature:…Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin.…We're going to look at each one.…Celsius is the most common temperature measure…around the world.…It used to be called Centigrade…before it was renamed after Anders Celsius.…The name Centigrade is made up of two parts,…centi, meaning one hundred…and grade, meaning steps,…which makes a lot of sense…when you understand that 0 degrees Celsius…is the freezing point of water.…
And 100 degrees Celsius is the boiling point of water.…So there are 100 degrees between the freezing point…and the boiling point, 100 steps.…Fahrenheit is used only in the United States…and in a half-dozen other countries.…Even though very few countries use it,…because the United States uses it,…it is still very prevalent.…It was proposed and named…after Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit.…
