Can someone pls help me!!
You decide to establish a new temperature scale on which the melting point of ammonia (-77.75 C ) is 0 A, and the boiling point of ammonia (-33.35 C ) is 200 A.
What would be the boiling point of water in A ?
What would be the temperature of absolute zero in A ?
Take the difference between the C's and A's and make a conversion factor.
bp of water in C*(200A/44.4C)= Bp of water in A
Absolute zero in C*(200A/44.4C)=Absolute zero in A
Where did you get 44.4 from
I used slope to find the answer to the first part which was correct... the second part is what I need help with
The difference between -77.75 and -33.35 is 44.4; the difference between the two in A is 200 (i.e., 0 to 200).
This means that 200 A= 44.4 C
What I calculated was a ratio, so you can use the ratio to convert your units for each of the following to A.
