converts temperature temp from temperature scale oldscale to scale newscale.
  • 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 to convert the actual temperatures.
