HW 4A.11

Postby Vana Mirzakhani 3I » Fri Mar 15, 2019 6:56 pm

Why is it that in the 7th edition HW 4A.11, the answer key solved the problem in K but the book gave us the variables in degrees C? There was no conversion between degrees C and K, the answer key just solved it using the the numbers as given. Thank you.

Kelvin is the standard unit for temperature. As a good rule of thumb always have your temperature be in Kelvin.
