For us, there is no elsewhere






I'm Bee. I'm a PhD candidate/hermit. I am, above all things, a scientist.

Some of my top shows are Elementary. Haven. Doctor Who. Battlestar Galactica. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Pushing Daisies. A complete list of shows I have watched can be found here.

I also blog about things like feminism, queer issues, science, working in a research lab, and my girlfriend.

On this blog, spoilers are tagged and/or put under a read more. All shows are tagged by their title. Trigger and content warnings are used as needed (click here to see what I tag). Please always message me if you would like something tagged.

Scales


This is because Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body.   The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate).  Fahrenheit was designed around humans.Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.Celsius is a scale based on water.  Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing.  Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin.  It’s the bottom of the scale.So.Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humansCelsius: what temperatures affect waterKelvin: what temperatures affect atoms

Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.

Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.

So.
Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans
Celsius: what temperatures affect water
Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms
