Don’t quite understand the difference between Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin? Don’t have time for a long explanation of temperature scales?
You’re in luck! A new video from MinutePhysics (see above) aims to explain the scales in just 10 seconds.
The video ends with this bonus fact: If we lived on Saturn’s moon Titan, we probably would have used the freezing and boiling points of methane for our “100 step” (Celsius) scale. That’s because instead of water, Titan’s clouds, rain, and surface liquid are composed of methane.
At 10 seconds, the temperature lesson moves fast–so listen closely. But don’t worry if you don’t take it all in the first time around. You’ll have plenty of time for a replay!
