How does this work?!
If the temperature this morning is 0 degrees and the Weather Channel says, "it will be twice as cold tomorrow", what will the temperature be?!
Looks like one of the Google Gadget "Things to Ponder" postings available for Google Blogs????
What you have to do to solve this is first :
1. convert Fahrenheit to Celsius
0°F = -17.778°C
2. Multiply times 2
-17.778°C X 2 = -35.556°C
3. Convert back to Fahrenheit
-35.556°C = -32°F
So your answer would be -32°F is twice as cold as 0°F
I agree with woodsmensPost that theoratically that works, but if you would use Kelvin in stead of Celsius the answer is different,
0 °F = 255.37 K
255.37 / 2 = 127.69
127.69 K = -229.84 °F (And this would be a very simplified and wrong way to calculate this)
I know that is extremely cold but there is no good reason to use Celsius over Kelvin, I don't think you can just take another scale and use it to convert the temperature. Next to that colder is a vague term.
Nice question but I don't think the answer is simple..
I would work on the fact that the comfortable temperature for humans is averaged at 21'C.
Therefore 0'C is 21'below that average.
So, twice as cold would be -21'C
This is just my opinion, a thought as to what it could mean. Personally I think it is just slang English, meaning it will be very much colder tomorrow.
Just wrap up well!!
