Question

(a) The Celsius scale is devised so that 0C0^{\circ} \mathrm{C} is the freezing point of water (at 1 atmosphere of pressure) and 100C100^{\circ} \mathrm{C} is the boiling point of water (at 1 atmosphere of pressure). If you are more familiar with the Fahrenheit scale, then you know that water freezes at 32F32^{\circ} \mathrm{F} and boils at 212F.212^{\circ} \mathrm{F}. Find a linear equation that relates temperature measured in degrees Celsius and temperature measured in degrees Fahrenheit. (b) The normal body temperature in humans ranges from 97.6F97.6^{\circ} \mathrm{F} to 99.6F.99.6^{\circ} \mathrm{F}. Convert this temperature range into degrees Celsius.
