# Equations for Density & Temperature Conversion (2.1)

## 13 terms · How to convert temperature between the main three temperature scales used in Chemistry. How to find the density of an object. How to manipulate the equation for density in order to solve for mass or volume. How to convert different units of volume (milliliters/centimeters cubed/liters/meters cubed)

### Common Temperature Scales

Celsius or Centigrade (°C) - scale used in most of the world; used by most scientists during experimentation.
0°C = 0°N = 0°Re = 32°F = 273.15K

Fahrenheit (°F) - scale used mainly in the United States.
0°F = -17.8°C = 255.2 K = 459.67°Ra

Kelvin scale (K) - absolute scale; SI unit for temperature; used when describing properties of gases; 1°K = 1°C
0°K = 0°Ra = -273.15°C = -459.67°F

Rankine (Ra) - absolute scale; 1°Ra = 1°F
0°R = 0K 1 R = 1 °F = 5 ⁄ 9 °C = 5 ⁄ 9 K

### More Obscure Temperature Scales

Romer (°Ro); Newton (°N); Delisle (°D); Reaumur (°Re).

### Change Fahrenheit - Celsius

°C = (°F - 32) ÷ 1.8

### Change Celsius to Fahrenheit

°F = (1.8 x C) + 32

°C = K - 273

K = °C + 273

### Density Equation

D = mass ÷ volume

### Density Equation Rearranged (Solve for Mass)

Mass = Density x Volume

### Density Equation Rearranged (Solve for Volume)

Volume = Mass ÷ Density

### Volume Equivalences

1 mL = 1cm³
1000 mL = 1000 cm³ = 1 Liter
1000 Liters = 1 meter³
