If the temperature today is 0C and it will be twice as cold tomorrow, what temperature will it be tomorrow?

-136.5c it would be.

Where the fook did you get that from:confused:

Random guess that came into my head.

The first question to decipher is where your frame of reference lies mr Flanagan. By what do you regard 0c cold relative to? 17c/18c or so is room temperature but I often find that until the temperature drops to about 7-8c we can all wander about outside without much discomfort. So, by that logic, 0c is cold compared to 7c, so twice as cold will mean that tomorrow is -7c.

Mathematically, 0c is 32fahrenheit, so a doubling of the cold coefficent would mean a halving of the temperature. Ipso facto, 16f. This translates as -8.8888888888888888c*.

And sit up straight.

*the maths answer doesnâ€™t take into account the increased rates of change for the Fahrenheit scale, in comparison to that of Celcius

Im not Flanagan. Im not talking about relativity im talking about when the temperature as per a thermometer reads 0c.

The fahernheit coversion is what I used to work it out too(after a discussion with a colleague) but it doesnâ€™t make any sense.

Thatâ€™s why you need to form something to compare it to. The scales donâ€™t match. You imply that 0c is cold, but in comparison to what, is the question? If something is twice as cold as something else, you have to work out what the something else is cold according toâ€¦

If a thermometer reads 0c what is twice as cold as that?

Im not Flanagan. Flano is actually my surname, Im of Spanish descent.

Think we need to send Juhniallio on an IT Course.

Boring as the question is I may as well answer it:

Kelvin is your friend here surely. The scale begins at absolute zero so thereâ€™s no need for relativity. O Celcius is 273.15K so the twice as cold would be 136.575Kelvin.

Thatâ€™s twice as cold on the kelvin scale.

Kelvin my warm hole. IT me sac(as in bollock sac)

0 degrees Kelvin is the point at which all motion in matter stops; it

is known as â€śabsolute zero.â€ť No temperature can exist that is lower

than 0 degrees Kelvin.

I feel pedantic today, so:

there is no such thing as â€śdegrees Kelvin.â€ť Kelvin does not operate in a scale of degrees.

fine - On the Fahrenheit thermometer, 0 degrees would be -17.8 degrees Celsius. Thus, twice as cold would be -35.6 degrees Celsius, which equals -32.08 degrees Fahrenheit.
