To go from Celsius to Kelvin, you add To go from Kelvin to Celsius, you subtract Examples: 0 degrees Celsius = Kelvin. Charles' Law: Gas Volume and Temperature Relationship . You will also be introduced to the Kelvin scale (an absolute scale) and learn how. Scale of temperature is a way to measure temperature quantitatively. Empirical scales measure . Although the Kelvin and Celsius scales are defined using absolute zero (0 K) and the triple point of water scale as well as a unit to indicate a temperature interval (a difference between two temperatures or an uncertainty).
International temperature scale of [ edit ] Main article: ITS ITS is designed to represent the thermodynamic temperature scale referencing absolute zero as closely as possible throughout its range. Many different thermometer designs are required to cover the entire range.
Accordingly, ITS—90 uses numerous defined points, all of which are based on various thermodynamic equilibrium states of fourteen pure chemical elements and one compound water. Thermometers calibrated per ITS—90 use complex mathematical formulas to interpolate between its defined points. ITS—90 specifies rigorous control over variables to ensure reproducibility from lab to lab. For instance, the small effect that atmospheric pressure has upon the various melting points is compensated for an effect that typically amounts to no more than half a millikelvin across the different altitudes and barometric pressures likely to be encountered.
The standard even compensates for the pressure effect due to how deeply the temperature probe is immersed into the sample. ITS—90 also draws a distinction between "freezing" and "melting" points. The distinction depends on whether heat is going into melting or out of freezing the sample when the measurement is made.
Only gallium is measured while melting, all the other metals are measured while the samples are freezing. There are often small differences between measurements calibrated per ITS—90 and thermodynamic temperature.

For instance, precise measurements show that the boiling point of VSMOW water under one standard atmosphere of pressure is actually When calibrated to ITS—90, where one must interpolate between the defining points of gallium and indium, the boiling point of VSMOW water is about 10 mK less, about Explain the importance to telecommunications of geostationary satellites.
Use the quantitative relationship between orbital speed, orbital radius and time period. Use the quantitative relationship between centripetal acceleration, orbital speed, and radius. Understand the role of the gravitational force of the Earth as the centripetal force on the satellite. Explain the condition required for a satellite to remain in orbit. Use the quantitative relationship between the force acting on a satellite, mass, orbital speed, and radius.
Particles Understand that an increase in temperature results in an increase in the speed of gas molecules.
Scale of temperature
Understand that the Kelvin temperature of the gas is proportional to the average kinetic energy of the gas molecules. Describe the Kelvin scale of temperature and be able to convert between the Kelvin and Celsius scales. Explain the pressure exerted by a gas in terms of the motion of its molecules.
Describe the qualitative relationship between pressure and Kelvin temperature for a gas in a sealed container. Use the quantitative relationship between the pressure and the Kelvin temperature: Understand that, in atoms, electrons have discrete energy values energy levels Understand that an atom will emit absorb light when an electron drops rises from one energy level into a lower higher level.
Understand that the light energy emitted absorbed is equal to the energy transferred from to the electron. Understand the factors charge and speed that affect the deflection of a -particles by a nucleus.
Recall the qualitative features of the curve obtained when the number of neutrons N is plotted against the number of protons Z for stable isotopes. Understand that if an isotope does not lie on this curve it will be unstable and radioactive. Recall that an isotope that lies above the curve has too many neutrons to be stable and will undergo b --decay emit an electron.
Understand that in the process of b --decay a neutron becomes a proton plus an electron. Understand that a nucleus of U can be split fission by collision with a neutron and that this process releases energy. Recall that the fission of U produces two daughter nuclei and a small number of neutrons. Understand that a chain reaction can be set up if the neutrons produced by one fission strike other U nuclei. Describe in outline how the fission process can be used as an energy source to generate electricity.
Understand that the products of nuclear fission are radioactive and the implications this has for their safe storage. Recall that nuclei with greater than 82 protons undergo a -decay. Recall that as a result of a - or b -decay a nucleus often undergoes rearrangement with a loss of energy as g -radiation.
