ABSOLUTE TEMPERATUREThe fundamental temperature scale with its zero at absolute zero and expressed in degrees Kelvin. One degree Kelvin is equal to one degree Celsius or one degree Centigrade. For the purpose of practical calculations in order to convert Celsius to Kelvin add 273. It is normal for the degree Kelvin to be abbreviated in mathematical formulae to âKâ with the degree symbol being omitted. 
CONVERSION SCALEA scale for the conversion of units of one measurement to equivalent units of another measurement. 
DALTON'S TEMPERATURE SCALEA scale for measuring temperature such that the absolute temperature T is given in terms of the temperature on the Dalton scale by T 273.15(373.15/273.15)/100. 
CURLE SCALE OF TEMPERATUREA temperature scale based on the susceptibility of a paramagnetic substance, assuming that it obeys Curie's law; used at temperatures below about 1 kelvin. 
CELSIUS TEMPERATURE SCALETemperature scale of 0o (freezing water) to 100o (boiling water). Celsius = (Fahrenheit  32) x 5/9.

KELVIN SCALEThe basic scale used for temperature definition; the triple point of water (comprising ice, liquid, and vapor) is defined as 273.16 K; given two reservoirs, a reversible heat engine is built operating in a cycle between them, and the ratio of their temperatures is defined to be equal to the ratio of the heats transferred.
