Temperature

Hi everyone,


For the problem below, I have the answer but because I didn't see a step-by-step explanation, I am very confused.

[color=#0000FF]If the temperature of a bowl of ice cream increases from -10?C to 25?C, what is the increase in temperature in units of degrees Celsius and Kelvin?[/color]

The answer is: [color=#FF0080]35?C, 35K.[/color]

If you may, can you explain how the book reached that answer?


Thank you.

Re: Temperature

Kelvin and Celsius degrees have the same size. They differ in the location of the origin. 25 - (-10) = 35.
