Why would 100 Centigrade be twice as cold as 100 Centigrade? :huh:

:redface: See, I'm so attuned to the positives in nature, JJ, that I fail to see negatives!! :lol:

Okay, now I see your point. Not quite correct yet. Think about the standard you're using ... :wink:

A hint, maybe, will point you in the right direction; so, let me rephrase the question:

What is twice as cold as the freezing point of water?

0 is the freezing point
0*2=0

Nope. :wink: Zero cannot be twice as cold as zero.

OWN - Let me ask a dumb question?

Is twice as cold as the BOILING POINT of water the same as TWICE as cold as the FREEZING POINT?
as per your rephrased question?

I actually have no idea what I'm talking about here - just trying to understand the question?

Impossible to ask a dumb Q, JJ! :naughty:

No, the values are different. I rephrased the Q to encourage people to seek another standard other than the difference between the boiling and freezing points of water. If you think about it logically, there is only one standard.

0 converted to Fahrenheit is 32 so:
16 degrees Fahrenheit is the answer.

Dry ice gives more than twice the cooling energy per pound of weight and three times the cooling energy per volume than regular water ice (H2O).

It freezes at -78.5°C :hmz:

Edit - Are we looking at a number as the answer or a substance ???

Absolute zero = -273.15°C

Interesting info, JJ. :thumbs_up:

Temperature-wise, you're heading in the right direction. Now, think colder! :wink:
