Temperatureand Heat
------------------------------- 
Joseph F. Alward, PhDDepartment of PhysicsUniversity of the PacificLord Kelvin
 
Fahrenheit and Celsius
 
F = (9 / 5) C + 32
 ----------------------------------------------------------------- Example 1:What is 100 C in Fahrenheit ?
 
(9 / 5)100 + 32 = 180 + 32 = 212 F
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------Example 2:At what temperature do theFahrenheit and Celsius scales read the same?
 
x = (9 / 5) x + 32(- 4 / 5) x = 32x = - 40- 40 C is the same temperature as - 40 F
 Celsius and Kelvin
 
 
K = C + 273
Example 1:
What is 100 C in Kelvin?100 + 273.15 = 373.15 K--------------------------------------------------------
Example 2:
What is 0 K in Centigrade?
 
C = K - 273.15
 
= 0 - 273.15= -273.15
 
William Thomson(Lord Kelvin)1824-1907
 
Absolute Zero
 
No motion or pressure at -273.15 C
 
Absolute zero : O K
 Example Problem
 
 
What is the pressure when thetemperature is -100 C?
 
(1 Pascal = 1 N/m
2
)
The equation of a straight line:y = mx + bP = mT + P
0
4000 = m(0) + P
0
(drop units)P
0
= 4000 Pa-----------------------------------------0 = m(-273.15) + 4000
 
m = 4000/273.15= 1.46 Pa/C-----------------------------------------P = 1.46 T + 4000P = 1.46(-100) + 4000= 3854 Pa
