Temperature problem(sorry If i may be in the wrong section)
« on: August 23, 2015, 08:46:04 PM »
I am doing a summer assignment for AP Chem and I stumbled on this tricky and hard question, and this is the last question left for my assignment. I'm not going to ask for all the answers, I just need to know the relationship between Celsius and that X degrees and explain it to me how it is done. I tried converting them to kelvin, celsius, and fahrenheit and it didnt make sense.

Draw a graph on x axis the X temperatures and on Y-axis the Celcius temperature.

You get two equations. y =mx +b     Calculate m and b.

Just a hint:
Note that 130 °C-(-10°C) = 140 °C≡50°X-0°X.
