This worksheet was created by PTC Mathcad staff and can also be found on PTC’s Engineering Resources, powered by Mathcad. In this Mathcad 15.0 worksheet you can find an example of using Mathcad units for temperature conversion, custom characters, and functions. Here’s a full description:
Temperature conversion is a very common step in many disciplines. With the use of PTC Mathcad’s built-in temperature units, a simple and seamless method of temperature conversion is can be achieved. Most of these conversions are very easy because they are direct multiplications into another unit system. This worksheet provides you with simple steps of how to:
- Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius
- Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit
- Use the custom characters toolbar
- Enter negative temperatures
Step by step instruction is included along with images, formulas, and solutions to provide you with examples for how to solve and convert.
