Why are different scales of temperature used?
They have different uses for differnt people
The Celsius scale is based on two improtant properties of one of the most common compounds on earth: the freezing and point of water, designated
The Fahrenheit scale is based on an experiment to make a freezing solution (
The Kelvin scale is based on the lowest possible temperature, the so-called absolute zero. The distance between degree marks is the same as in the Celsius scale.
The Celsius scale is used for everyday life. Using the Kelvin scale in chemistry and physics makes us avoid a lot of awkwardness in calculations.
