What is the saying to help you remember Celsius?
10 is cold, 20 is not, 30 is warm, and 40 is hot.

Is this right?

I have tried to look it up without success.

6.2 miles is 10 kilometers and Kelvin is way less than that.

Thanks Malu. I know the fraction version of the conversion. I was just telling a Canadian this saying and he said he had never heard of it. I'm American and I learned to recognize Celsius by this saying, but don't remember where I learned it, nor can find it on the internet.

Re: What is the saying to help you remember Celsius?
C = 5/9 x (F - 32) to convert a Fahrenheit temperature to a Celsius temperature.

And by using the formula F = 1.8 x C + 32 to convert a Celsius temperature to a Fahrenheit temperature.

I'm not trying to convert. I'm asking if anyone has heard of the saying.

Fahrenheit is what the temperature is measured in.

Celsius is for assholes and pussies...
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

Re: What is the saying to help you remember Celsius?
This saying is not meant to be exact people. It is like a rule of thumb sort of thing.

If you hear 15 degrees C you think in your mind half way between cold and not.

If you hear 35 you think between warm and hot.

It is a rule of thumb, nothing else.

Re: What is the saying to help you remember Celsius?
but 35 is hot as blazes
your rhyme sounds valid though
it's something you get used to

a cigarette weighs a gram
a nickel weighs two
there's 3.5 to an eighth
7 to a quatch
doesn't rhyme just some facts

fuel is sold by the liter that's 4.55 uk gallons but a us gallon is a bit less, so when you travel to us it's futile to figure out the difference, but what was \$40 at home you get for \$30 but the money usually isn't worth the same either
