Celsius Fahrenheit °F = °C × 1.8 + 32
This article is about the temperature scale; see also Fahrenheit graphics API. Fahrenheit is a temperature scale named after the German physicist Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736), who proposed it in 1724. In this scale, the freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit (this is written 32 °F... Fahrenheit Celsius °C = (°F – 32) / 1.8
Celsius Kelvin K = °C + 273.15
The kelvin (symbol: K) is the SI unit of temperature, and is one of the seven SI base units. It is defined by two facts: zero kelvins is absolute zero (when molecular motion stops), and one kelvin is the fraction 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple...

The degree Celsius (°C) is a The word unit means any of several things: One, the first natural number. The natural or usual or smallest measure of something, of which there are multiples and of which there may be fractions. In most physical contexts, for example science and engineering, unit is used to mean a physical... unit of Temperature is the physical property of a system which underlies the common notions of hot and cold; the material with the higher temperature is said to be hotter. General description The formal properties of temperature are studied in thermodynamics. Formally, temperature is that property which governs the transfer of thermal... temperature named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius The observatory of Anders Celsius, from a contemporary engraving. Anders Celsius (November 27, 1701 _ April 25, 1744) was a Swedish astronomer. Celsius was born at Ovanåker in Sweden.

It exists in many places and forms... water is 0 degrees, and the boiling point is 100 degrees at Atmospheric pressure is the pressure caused by the weight of air above any area in the Earths atmosphere. Standard atmospheric pressure (atm) is discussed in the next section. Air masses are affected by the general atmospheric pressure within the mass, creating areas of high and low pressure.

Since there are one hundred graduations between these two reference points, the original term for this system was centigrade (100 parts) or centesimal. In 1948 is a leap year starting on Thursday (link will take you to calendar). Events January-February January 1 - Nationalisation of UK railways to form British Railways.

January 4... 1948 the system's name was officially changed to Celsius (a third name which had also been in use before then) by the 9th General Conference on Weights and Measures (CR 64), both in recognition of Celsius himself and to eliminate confusion caused by conflict with the use of the SI (disambiguation). The International System of Units (abbreviated SI from the French phrase, Système International dUnités) is the most widely used system of units. It is used for everyday commerce in virtually every country of the world except the United States, Liberia and Myanmar, and... SI centi- prefix. While the values for freezing and boiling of water remain approximately correct, the original definition is unsuitable as a formal standard: it depends on the definition of standard atmospheric pressure which in turn depends on the definition of temperature. The current official definition of the Celsius sets 0.01 °C to be at the In physics, the triple point of a substance is the temperature and pressure at which three phases (gas, liquid, and solid) of that substance may coexist in thermodynamic equilibrium. For example, the triple point temperature of water is exactly 273.16 kelvins (0.01 °C) and the triple... triple point of water and a degree to be 1/273.16 of the difference in temperature between the triple point of water and This article is about a television episode; for the temperature, see Absolute zero.

Vitamin C is required for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body.
Vitamin C is essential for the healing of wounds, and for the repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
All fruits and vegetables contain some amount of vitamin C. Foods that tend to be the highest sources of vitamin C include green peppers, citrus fruits and juices, strawberries, tomatoes, broccoli, turnip greens and other leafy greens, sweet and white potatoes, and cantaloupe.

HCV Genotypes: It is much easier to talk of the Hepatitis C virus as if it is a single organism but in fact it is a range of viruses, similar enough to be called Hepatitis C virus, yet different enough to be classified into subgroups.
