Solution: Comparison of the Kelvin, Celsius, and Fahrenheit temperature scales.True or false: The "size" of a degree on the Celsius scale is the same as the "size" of a degree on the Kelvin scale.

Problem

On the Kelvin Scale and Celsius Scale the graduation lines are spaced identically, and the linear distance describing a 100 degree interval is the same and equivalent to a 180 degree interval on the Fahrenheit scale, which also has differently spaced graduations. The diagram is described below. Water freezes at 273 kelvin, 0 degrees celsius, and 32 degrees fahrenheit. Normal body temperature is considered to be at 310 kelvin, 37 degrees celsius, and 98.6 degrees fahrenheit. Water boils at 373 kelvin, 100 degrees celsius, and 212 degrees fahrenheit.
Comparison of the Kelvin, Celsius, and Fahrenheit temperature scales.

True or false: The "size" of a degree on the Celsius scale is the same as the "size" of a degree on the Kelvin scale.
