Topic Reading-Vol.448-7/3/2013

Dear MEL School’s Topic Readers,
Southwest bakes in 115 to 120-degree heat!
How many of you are able to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius or vice versa?
Don’t worry; the Fahrenheit scale isn’t officially or practically used in the U.S. and a few other small countries. But when you hear or read temperatures like 115 to 120 degrees, you’ll be quite surprised or confused. Is the U.S. such a hot place?
In order to convert the Fahrenheit to Celsius, you need to subtract 18 first and then divide the figure by 1.8, or multiply it by five and divided the result by nine. Here are some comparative figures;
- the boiling point of water is 212 degrees Fahrenheit=> 100 degrees Celsius
- 125 degrees Fahrenheit=> 52 degrees Celsius
- 100 degrees Fahrenheit=> 38 degrees Celsius
-   75 degrees Fahrenheit=> 24 degrees Celsius
-   25 degrees Fahrenheit=> 10 degrees Celsius
- the freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit=> 0 degrees Celsius
Enjoy reading and learning how hot the South-western part of the U.S. is.
