For us, there is no elsewhere






I'm Bee. I am part PhD candidate, part hermit.

My blog has a lot of things on it. I run almost entirely by queue. I don't know how to write summaries.

A complete list of shows I have watched can be found here. I blog about things like feminism, queer issues, science, and working in a research lab. I recommend the green "about" button on the left for something better than this sidebar.

On this blog, spoilers are tagged and/or put under a read more. Trigger and content warnings are used and you can find a list of what I tag here. 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

    I had a teacher who told me that Herr Fahrenheit based his scale on the coldest thing he could find, which was very cool...
