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!!

It's easy to deconvert to atheism because they are disappointed, hurt or because they have lost their faith due to God making sense. It's harder to suddenly make a rational atheists convert to Christianity, which is faith-based. How does it happen?

It seems that Islam is on the rise in just about every nation around the globe.They are pushing their agenda onto any and every government that is TOLERANT, and using the freedom (and laws) in those countries to gain more and more control.The UK is a prime example, where political will is weak (at...
