Textbook Problem

A person’s body temperature is 101.6°F, indicating a fever of 5.0°F above the normal average body temperature of 98.6°F. How many degrees above normal is this body temperature on the Celsius scale?

To determine
The temperature change on Celsius scale.

Explanation

Given Info: The temperature rose from T1=98.6οF and T2=101.6οF .

Formula to calculate the temperature on Celsius scale is,

(T)οC=59[(T)οF32ο]       (I)

  • T is the temperature.

On Differentiating Equation (I),

(ΔT)οC=59[(ΔT)οF]       (II)

  • ΔT is the change in temperature

The change in temperature on Fahrenheit scale is,

ΔT=T2T1

Substitute T2T1 for ΔT in Equation (II)
