She's Just Like the Weather,
Can't Hold Her Together

I go by Airstyle - this is my corner of the internet.

Welcome! I post a mixture of weather and fandom posts (Sherlock/Doctor Who). I post original weather photography and am always willing to answer weather questions! Expect bouts of fangirling, surges of science, high levels of snark, and a general abuse of tags.

This weekend shaping up to be the largest severe weather outbreak of the year. If only I still lived in the Great Plains where I could storm chase.
OH THAT’S RIGHT. I GOT MYSELF PLANE TICKETS TO OKC FOR THE WEEKEND AT A BITCHIN PRICE. LET’S GO GET SOME NADERS.

Scales

This is because Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate). Fahrenheit was designed around humans.Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.So.Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humansCelsius: what temperatures affect waterKelvin: what temperatures affect atoms

I like how this very helpful explanation contained the phrase “stop doing that spinning thing”

It’s something Martin and I made up. Where you act so badly, they come and take your BAFTA off you.

the accuracy of this tho

Yeah, unless you go into lightning research, pretty much nothing from E and M proves relevant. My pet theory is that we are forced to take it as a bonding experience.

Actually used Doppler effect knowledge on wx field day a few weeks ago, but each to their own! 💁

Oh, I didn’t realize that Doppler was part of semester two! I tested out of everything except the labs, so I must have learned it in a different order back in high school. Doppler is extremely relevant and I retract my prior opinion. Though let’s be real, 95% of that semester is still wasted met major tears.
