Textbook Problem

Death Valley holds the record for the highest recorded temperature in the United States. On July 10, 1913, at a place called Furnace Creek Ranch, the temperature rose to 134°F. The lowest U.S. temperature ever recorded occurred at Prospect Creek Camp in Alaska on January 23, 1971, when the temperature plummeted to −79.8°F. (a) Convert these temperatures to the Celsius scale, (b) Convert the Celsius temperatures to Kelvin.

(a)

To determine

The temperatures on Celsius scale.

Explanation

Given Info: The temperatures on Fahrenheit scale are 134οF and 79.8οF.

Formula to calculate the temperature on Celsius scale is,

(T)οC=59[(T)οF32ο]

  • T is the temperature.

Substitute 134οF for T to get (T)οC.

(T)οC=59[134ο32ο]=56

(b)

To determine

The temperatures on Kelvin scale.
