But if they can`t come up with the original then how do they copy it?
No, pretty much only science uses metric. Drivers licenses have ft/in for height and lbs for weight, distances are in miles, and all weather is in Fahrenheit.
"Also, it would be nice if the americans would switch to the metric system, or at least use both units. in Canada, we switched to the metric system in 1978, but we all know both metric and imperial."
Americans do use both. All science courses use the metric system, and personally I know both the metric and imperial systems of measurement. And I`ve talked to many Canadians that don`t know the imperial system, so not all Canadians know both.
No, it doesn`t.
"Kinda the same reason why hot water freezes faster when put in the freezer. dont believe me try it."
Take your own advice and try it. No, it doesn`t.
You damn kids and your willingness to believe stupid, stupid urban legends.
althought the infared was interesting.
It definitely is. You can tell by the pixels.
Apparently, neither can you.
Most ignorant thing I`ve read in a while. If a liquid is colder, i.e. closer to its freezing point, it will require less heat transfer (and therefore time) to freeze. Similarly, hot water can be brought to a boil faster than cold water, using the same heat source.
"See if that same boiling water was poured out rather then spontaneously thrown into the air the results would have been different.."
While true, this has nothing to do with your previous statement. Rather, it`s about exposed surface area. If you pour the liquid, it will have less surface area and heat will be transferred more slowly. Throwing it into the air increases its surface area tremendously, and it can be frozen much quicker.
SAY NO TO BAD SCIENCE.
and i wonder what would happen if hotter than that with an interesting color was thrown into the cold with abandon. like magma, only magma would probably survive those cold temperatures.
DON`T EAT YELLOW SNOW PEOPLE!
They actually mentioned the fact that boiling water turned to snow on the announcements at school today. I was surprised to find this here.
I Kelvin is 1 degree celsius. And as some of you said they are directly proportional. They are just scaled differently.
so in this case -35 degrees fahrenheit.=-37 degrees C=236 K
On what planet?[/quote]
This planet. Both are scaled the same. Just the starting point for kelvin is absolute zero. (-459.7 degrees F.)
and how many videos are they gonna make of people throwing water in the air and making it snow?
I also think the Celcius scale is more logical for measuring basic temperatures.
"Hey guys, I think I`m gonna go outside and throw a pot of scalding water into the air.""Have fun."
Guess I was a bit vague.
A degree Kelvin is the same "size" as a degree Celsius, they denote the same increase or decrease in temperature. However, where the Celsius scale has its zero point set to the freezing point of water the Kelvin one has it set to absolute zero, where all matter are frozen solid. That happens at -273C or -460F.
As for being more logical, the Celsius scale zero degree is set to the freezing point of water and its 100th degree to the boiling point of water. The Farenheit zero is set to the coldest outdoor temperature Farenheit could measure, and its 100 to his body temperature.
There, exiting geek mode, hope you understand now.
Hahaha, what? You`re nuts.

Accurate or not, you`ll have to admit that the Celsius scale is more logical.
Osprey39: Since the Kelvin scale and the Celsius scale is the same thing you`d better start converting.
but it is cool to see the infra red
