New Temperature Scale

Today I have officially crossed over into “really geeky” territory. Of course I am, after all, an Einstein! I’ve created a new temperature scale. You see, I’m tired of converting Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice versa. So, I’ve created a temperature scale that is based on what I call “normal living temperatures”. I like that Celsius goes from 0-100 based on water freezing and boiling. I like that logic. But “living temperatures” go from about 0-38. Fahrenheit never made sense to me for living temperatures. It goes from 32-100. That’s not much better.

So I want to have a scale that goes from 0-100 in living temperatures. What I did was start with 0 Celsius and end with 100 Fahrenheit, then scale it throughout to get the Rob Temperature Scale.

Because I don’t want to post every degree change, here’s the comparisons:

100 F = 100 R = 38 C
90 F = 85 R = 32 C
80 F = 71 R = 27 C
70 F = 56 R = 21 C
60 F = 41 R = 16 C
50 F = 26 R = 10 C
40 F = 12 R = 4 C
32 F = 0 R = 0 C

0 C = 0 R = 32 F
5 C = 13 R = 41 F
10 C = 26 R = 50 F
15 C = 40 R = 59 F
20 C = 53 R = 68 F
25 C = 66 R = 77 F
30 C = 79 R = 86 F
35 C = 93 R = 95 F
38 C = 100 R = 100 F

So how did you spend your Saturday morning?

  • The problem with your new scale is that you use R for the symbol. However, the pre-existing Rankin scale, which is the Farenheit equivalent of Kelvin uses that symbol.

    You may want to think of creating a P – Patricia scale for temps. That would be easier to deal with as it would be in the 80F range. When it is 12F in DC Patricia is really thinking “I wish it was 80F” & thus subconciously converts what she feels into 80F. Subconciously converting to the P scale is somewhat easy, but requires a bigger suitcase.

    Conversion would be as follows… (based on shared domocile)
    80P = 80R = :)P
