What is the freezing point of water in Celsius Fahrenheit and Kelvin?
Temperature scale that registers the freezing point of water as 0 degrees C and the boiling point as 100 degrees C under normal atmospheric pressure. Temperature scale in which zero occurs at absolute zero and each degree equals one kelvin. Water freezes at 273.15 K and boils at 373.15 K.
We've all been taught that water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, 0 degrees Celsius, 273.15 Kelvin. That's not always the case, though. Scientists have found liquid water as cold as -40 degrees F in clouds and even cooled water down to -42 degrees F in the lab.
- On the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) and the boiling point is 212 °F (at standard atmospheric pressure). This puts the boiling and freezing points of water exactly 180 degrees apart.
- As the last of the liquid part turns to ice, you have a solid at 0 degrees Celsius. For water at 0 degrees Celsius, the vapour pressure is about 613.283 N/m or 0.613283 bar. So if you lower the pressure below this value, the liquid water at 0 degrees will turn to vapuor state.
- Water Temperature. These little dots represent the temperature range you should wash this item in. The more dots on the tag, the hotter the water should be — one dot represents cold, or 30 degrees Celsius; two dots for warm, or 40 degrees; three dots for hot, or 50 degrees; and four dots for extra hot, or 60 degrees.
