    What is the temperature coefficient?

    The temperature coefficient, often abbreviated Q10, is a ratio of an activity or physiological process at one temperature versus another temperature. Normally this ratio is calculated for intervals of 10 degrees C, but can be calculated for SMALLER intervals ...
