“I fear the plutocracy of wealth, I respect the aristocracy of learning, but I thank God for the democracy of the heart that makes it possible for every human being to do something to make life worth living while he lives and the world better for his existence in it.” ~Wiliiam Jennings Bryan
In 1954, the tenth general conference on weights and measures adopted the Kelvin K as the basic unit for measuring all international weights and measures. While the kelvin is the standard unit, degrees Farenheit and degrees Celsius are still in common use in the United States.
The function C(F)=5/9(F-32) relates Celsius temperatures and Farenheit Temperatures. The function K(C)= C + 273.15 relates celsius temperatures and kelvin temperatures.
Let’s convert Fahrenheit to Kelvin. The composition of the function K with the function C is
K(C(F)) = C(F) + 273 = (5/9)(F-32) + 273
Since C converts Fahrenheit to Celsius and K converts Celsius to Kelvin, the composition will convert Fahrenheit to Kelvin.
Time is the substance I am made of, Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire. – Jorge Luis Borges
