why celsius/centigrade is better than fahrenehenheit

  • easier to spell
  • all water below 0 is ice. easy and logical
  • all water above 100 is steam. easy and logical
  • if it’s 1 degree outside one day and 10 degrees the next you can literally say it’s 10x warmer and you aren’t even exaggerating

why farhenininheniehenhet is better than centigrate/celsius

  • it isn’t

hang on a second

"you can literally say it’s 10x warmer and you aren’t even exaggerating"

You are in fact underexaggerating because 10 degrees celsius is just 3.6% warmer than 1 degree.

Why?

In kelvin, the absolute and superior temperature scale, 1 celsius is 273.15 degrees. What’s that x10? 2731.5 kelvin, or 2458.35°C
