Temperature Interval Converter

Temperature is a fundamental concept in science and our daily lives. Whether you're a student, scientist, or just curious about the weather, understanding temperature intervals and converting them between different units is a valuable skill. In this article, we'll explore the concept and units of temperature interval.

Definition of Temperature Interval

Temperature interval refers to the difference between two temperature values measured in the same unit. For example, the temperature interval between 20°C and 30°C is 10°C. Our Temperature Interval Converter focuses on converting these intervals between different temperature units, allowing users to work seamlessly across various temperature scales.

Temperature Units

Before delving into temperature intervals, let's familiarize ourselves with the five temperature units the converter supports:

  • Kelvin (K): The Kelvin is the base unit of temperature in the International System of Units (SI). It is based on the absolute zero point, where all molecular motion comes to a stop.
    Conversion Factor: 1 K = 1 K (Base Unit)

  • Celsius (°C): Celsius is a widely used temperature scale. The zero point is defined as the freezing point of water, and 100 degrees Celsius is the boiling point of water at standard atmospheric pressure.
    Conversion Factor: 1 K = 1 °C

  • Fahrenheit (°F): The Fahrenheit scale is commonly used in the United States. It is a temperature scale according to which water freezes at 32 degrees and boils at 212 degrees.
    Conversion Factor: 1 K = 1.8 °F

  • Rankine (°R): The Rankine scale is an absolute temperature scale, like Kelvin. However, it uses the Fahrenheit degree as its unit interval.
    Conversion Factor: 1 K = 1.8 °R

  • Réaumur (°r): The Réaumur scale is based on the freezing and boiling points of water, similar to Celsius, but with a different scale. The freezing point is 0 °r, and the boiling point is 80 °r. Conversion Factor: 1 K ≈ 0.8 °r
