I have a passion for teaching the Metric System for meaning and understanding. One thing I have noticed is that people resist change. Even I resist change at first, but when I stop and reflect, I realize that change is good. I have been using the Celsius scale as my temperature scale for most of my life. To feel change, I had the temperature display on my website display the temperature in the International System of Units of kelvins (K). (Notice, it doesn’t require a degree sign.)
Kelvin is the unit of absolute temperature equal to 1/273.16 of the absolute temperature of the triple point of water.
