Centigrade or Fahrenheit?
Ah, let’s wait if he is still around and can shed some light on this.
Let’s not. NEXT !!!
Yeah, I think if you were going to do this proper scientific-like it would be Kelvin. Easier numbers to double, anyway.
Trick question: “twice as cold/warm” is impossible.
It is completely possible. Twice as cold is same as half as warm (and vice-versa). Knowing that it is today 273.15K, if tomorrow it is twice as cold, it means it’ll be 136.575K which would translate to -136.575°C or -213.835°F.
Thank you for saying exactly what I visited the comments to say.
False. You can’t make the decision of what scale the op used. Perhaps it’s 0 K.
False. The only other possibility would be it is 0°F, then same logic would apply, just slightly different figures. If it was 0K, the op could not talk.
0k is as cold as it gets, it is nearly impossible to go below 0k without bending the rules of normal physics (yes scientists have able to do this in some situations). Since 0k is an absolute temperature that if it was 400k and it was twice as cold then it would be 200k and if it was twice as warm it would be 800k.
The point being that Kelvin is a rational scale so twice or half makes sense while F and C are interval scales and you can’t have twice or half of those numbers.
Hows about we just go with ‘It’s going to be fucking cold’?
Hmmm. That would be an interesting question for a science or math class. Just use a percentage such as 5% instead of two: It’s zero degrees now but was 5% colder yesterday. What was the temperature yesterday?
