The numerical value of temperature read by thermometers both in 0C and 0F scales becomes equal at

The numerical value of temperature read by thermometers both in 0C and 0F scales becomes equal at – 400.

Relation between different temperature scales

  1. \dpi{100} \mathbf{\frac{C - 0}{100} = \frac{F - 32}{180} = \frac{K - 273}{100}}
  2. \dpi{100} \mathbf{\frac{C - 0}{100} = \frac{F - 32}{180} }
  3. \dpi{100} \mathbf{\mathbf{\frac{x }{5} = \frac{x - 32}{9} }}
  4. cross multiply and solve for x
  5. \dpi{100} \mathbf{9x = 5x - 160}
  6. 9x – 5x = – 160
  7. 4x = – 160
  8. x = – 400

Hence, the numerical value of temperature read by thermometers both in 0C and 0F scales becomes equal at – 400.
