ConvertTemperature[temp, oldscale, newscale]
converts temperature temp from temperature scale oldscale to scale newscale.
  • To use ConvertTemperature, you first need to load the Units Package using Needs["Units`"].
  • The following settings for temperature scales oldscale and newscale can be used:
  • The conversion of temperature units is different from most other unit conversions, because it is not multiplicative. This is because the zeros of various systems are set at different values.
  • Convert only converts the units of temperature. Instead use ConvertTemperature to convert the actual temperatures.
