The temperature 2273°C is taken as the zero point on the Kelvin scale. This makes conversions between Kelvin and Celsius very easy. 4 Three temperature scales. 4 also shows the relationship between the Kelvin and Celsius scales. Note that we don’t use the degree symbol in the Kelvin scale: 100°C equals 373 K, not 373°K. Why was 2273°C chosen as the zero point on the Kelvin scale? The reason is that 2273°C, or 0 K, is the lowest possible temperature. Because of this, 0 K is called absolute zero.

6 g Following the procedure of multiplying and dividing units when we multiply and divide numbers, we find that dividing grams by grams cancels out the grams. We are left with pounds, which is the answer we want. 6 g is the correct conversion factor because it converts grams to pounds. 73 3 105 b 1 lb lb lb When we multiply grams by grams, we get g2 (grams squared). Dividing by pounds gives g2/lb. This is not the unit we want, so we used the incorrect conversion factor. How To . . Do Unit Conversions by the Factor-Label Method One of the most useful ways of approaching conversions is to ask three questions: • What information am I given?

If you were told that a person’s weight is 57, the information would be of very little use. Is it 57 pounds, which would indicate that the person is very likely a child or a midget, or 57 kilograms, which is the weight of an average woman or a small man? Or is it perhaps some other unit? Because so many units exist, a number by itself is not enough; the unit must also be stated. In the United States, most measurements are made with the English system of units: pounds, miles, gallons, and so on.
