What Phenomenon @ 0^F?

Tue Feb 26, 2002 12:14 pm

What is the name of the phenomenon at 0 degrees Farenheit? Also if there are any links to more information that would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Dunno about Farenheit but 0 degrees Celcius (or Centigrade) is Freezing Point!

I know that, but this paper says what phenomenon occurs at 0 degrees fahrenheit?

If I remember correctly from Chemistry, 0F is the freezing point of some strange combination of water and some other things (I think salt was one of them).

Hmmm..... It could be "What phenomenon occurs at 0 degrees Celcius?" And that would be the freezing point of water. But 0 degrees F? Never heard of that before.... Could just be a typo.

No it is not a typo, it talks about the celcius, kelvin and other things, then it says for an extra challenge, find what happens at 0F

The phenomenon is indeed at 0°F.

It works like this:

The closer to 0°F it is outside, the more likely your car needs gas.

Could it be the temperature at which ice contracts rather than expand?

How stupid I am, 0F was the lowest temperature Farenheit could produce with water and salt.

The exact temperature at which the nipples achieve a perpendicular status in relation to the aeriola(sp?), without mechanical adgitation at atmospheric pressure. Commonly referred to in the physics and chemistry world (as well as in most trailer parks) as the Temperature of THO.
