There are three temperature scale
s in common use today. The United States
uses the Fahrenheit scale, nations that have adopted the metric
scale use Celsius (sometimes called Centigrade), and the sciences use the Kelvin (or Absolute) scale.
All of these scales are related, and you can convert from one scale to another using temperature equations.
Celsius = --- * ( Fahrenheit - 32 )
Fahrenheit = ( --- * Celsius ) + 32
Kelvin = Celsius + 273
