The Chilling Celsius Challenge

Some of the samples taken on the JR have to be stored at temperatures WAY below what the average person considers freezing.  And of course, as I’ve told my students, we always use the metric system in science!  (It was nice seeing it used in every day life in Australia and NZ too!).

Here is my challenge for you – below is a picture of one of the signs on the sample freezer.


What is the temperature of this freezer in degrees Farenheit?

How many degrees below freezing is that in Farenheit?

What IS freezing temperature in Farenheit?

How cold does your average home freezer get?

Looking forward to the answers!
