For one gram of ice, it takes 11.9 calories to change the temperature to 0°, 80 calories to melt the ice, 100 calories to raise the water temperature to 100°, 540 calories to change the water to steam, and 23 calories to raise the steam temperature to 123°. That's a total of (11.9 + 80 + 100 + 540 + 23) calories or 754.9 calories. So to do the same to 55.6 grams of ice requires 55.6 times as much heat. 754.9 calories times 55.6 equals approximately 41972 calories (about 42 kilocalories).

What one degree change in temperature on the Celsius temperature scale is equal to a one unit temperature change on the what temperature scale?

No, the "degrees" have the same name but are different sizes. (Celsius degrees are larger intervals than Fahrenheit degrees.) A change of 1 degree Celsius is the same as a change of 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

What is the temperature change from 8 degrees - -7 degrees Celsius?

Since --7 deg = +7 deg, the change is 1 Celsius degree.

Are Celsius half Fahrenheit?

Fahrenheit = (Celsius x 9/5) + 32) = (1 x 9/5) + 32 = 33.8 degrees Fahrenheit However a change in temperature of 1 degree Celsius would be equivalent to a change of 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit

Change 59 degrees f to degrees celsius?

Use formula , 9C/5 + 32 = F & putting the given values .. 59 degree celsius = 144.1 degree Fahrenheit .

9 degree Fahrenheit equals 5 degree Celsius?

A temperature of 9 degrees Fahrenheit does not equal 5 degrees Celsius but a change of 9 degrees Fahrenheit equals 5 degrees Celsius. This happen because neither is an absolute scale.

On which temperature scale does 1 degree represent the smallest change in temperature?

The Fahrenheit scale change of 1 degree is smallest when compared to Celsius change. 1.8 degrees Celsius is 1 degree Fahrenheit

A substance has a temperature change from 20 degrees celsius to 45 degrees celsius. This corresponds to what temperature change in Fahrenheit degrees?

20 degrees Celsius is 68 degrees Fahrenheit. 45 degrees Celsius is 113 degrees Fahrenheit. So 25 degrees change Celsius = 25 x 1.8 = 45 degrees Fahrenheit. 1 degree change in Celsius is equivalent to 1.8 degrees change in Fahrenheit.
