Josie. 19. Tokio Hotel. Glee. Lady GaGa. One Direction. Anime & Manga. Twilight. Fifty Shades Of Grey. The color Pink. Man and Lady crushes. Rants. Ships. Fangirling 24/7. Whatever the hell I like. Randomness at it's finest. Me being me. English. Spanish. Sarcasm. Feels.
This is because Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate). Fahrenheit was designed around humans.
Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.
Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.
Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.
So. Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans Celsius: what temperatures affect water Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms
Why didn’t my science teachers ever see fit to toss off this little fact?
in my freshman year of college there was a guy who lived a floor above me who had this stereo system hooked up to the wifi so you could play music without being plugged in and it wasn’t password protected
so when my roommate and i got bored, we’d start blasting high school musical or hannah montana or justin beiber through his speakers just to hear him yell “fUCKING AGAIN?!”
