The hottest temperature recorded in the United States is 134 °F in Greenland Ranch, California. The melting point of phosphorus is 44 °C. At this temperature, would phosphorus be a liquid or a solid?

Interpretation Introduction

**Interpretation:**

The state of the phosphorus should be determined at

**Concept Introduction:**

A conversion factor is a numerical ratio which is used to show a measurement in one unit as another unit. It is always equal to 1.

The temperature in degree Fahrenheit can be converted into degree Celsius as follows:

Here,

**Given Information:**

The melting point of phosphorus is

**Calculation:**

The temperature in degree Fahrenheit is

On rearranging,
