Freezing point of water 32 0
Boiling point of water 212 100
Find the linear equation that expresses temperature in degrees Fahrenheit as a function of temperature in degrees Celsius.
Find the linear equation that expresses temperature in degrees Celsius as a function of temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.
How do the graphs of these two functions differ?
Let call degrees Fahrenheit F and degrees Celsius C
We assume that F is a linear function of C, hence it has the form F=a*C + b
Substitute the above temperatures into this equation:
At the freezing point: 32 = a*0 + b ...
