If today's temperature is 0 degrees Celsius and tomorrow will be 2 times colder, than today...

How much degrees is going to be tomorrow?

It will still be 0 degrees Celcius. I think my math is right on that anyway.

-136.575°C

0 degrees celcius is simply the freezing point of water, it's not like a measurement where you would have 0 degrees width.

So, you take the absolute value of zero on the Kelvin scale of measurement, then converted it back to celcius.

I would love to take credit for being smart enough to know this, but I am not. Brian, on the site "between the borders" answered this question for me.

Great question, by the way! I learned a little something this morning.

sueroy333 I agree with you, that -136.575°C is two times LESS degrees than 0, but I am not sure if it's two times COLDER (I mean the feeling of coldness that your body is experiencing) . You wrote the physical aspect of my question, but there is also a biological aspect.

I agree that theoretically when using the Kelvin scale it would be - 136.575 °C. But using the Fahrenheit scale the same way to calculate the answer as you did with the Kelvin scale you would get -8,9 °C ( 0 °C = 32 °F, 16 °F = -8,9 °C).
So two different answers, I think the major problem is the word colder as you said yourself. There isn't really a scale that determines how cold your body feels, there is off course windchill, not the real temperature your thermometer shows but the temperature that your skin "feels" due to the force of the wind and the temperature.

I would say a great question, but I think it will be very difficult to answer!
