Temperature conversion

From Rosetta Code
Task
Temperature conversion
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

There are quite a number of temperature scales. For this task we will concentrate on four of the perhaps best-known ones: Kelvin, Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Rankine.

The Celsius and Kelvin scales have the same magnitude, but different null points.

0 degrees Celsius corresponds to 273.15 kelvin.
0 kelvin is absolute zero.

The Fahrenheit and Rankine scales also have the same magnitude, but different null points.

0 degrees Fahrenheit corresponds to 459.67 degrees Rankine.
0 degrees Rankine is absolute zero.

The Celsius/Kelvin and Fahrenheit/Rankine scales have a ratio of 5 : 9.


Task

Write code that accepts a value of kelvin, converts it to values of the three other scales, and prints the result.


Example
K  21.00

C  -252.15

F  -421.87

R  37.80

ALGOL-M

If the temperature in Kelvin is a whole number, you should type a decimal point after it (e.g. 290.): 290 with no decimal point will be interpreted as 0.29 rather than 290.0.

BEGIN
DECIMAL K, C, F, R;
WRITE( "Temperature in Kelvin:" );
READ( K );
C := K - 273.15;
F := K * 1.8 - 459.67;
R := K * 1.8;
WRITE( K, " Kelvin is equivalent to" );
WRITE( C, " degrees Celsius" );
WRITE( F, " degrees Fahrenheit" );
WRITE( R, " degrees Rankine" );
END

APL

Given a temperature in Kelvin, prints the equivalent in Kelvin, Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Rankine (in that order).

      CONVERT←{⍵,(⍵-273.15),(R-459.67),(R←⍵×9÷5)}
Output:
      CONVERT 21
21 ¯252.15 ¯421.87 37.8

The "high minus" character ¯ is used in APL to mark negative numbers, preventing any possible confusion with - (the subtraction operator).

So, "absolute" has a value of 0, and 310x is just 310.

After that file is read and processed, values are read from stdin.
Here entering "333" by hand, and then stopping with an empty input.

Befunge

The temperature to convert is read from stdin. Befunge has no support for real numbers, though, so reading and writing of decimal values is done with character I/O. For the same reason, the temperature calculations use integer arithmetic to emulate fixed point. The first two lines handle the input; the second line performs the conversion calculations; and the last three handle the output.

Solution:
   NB.  Temp conversions are all linear polynomials
K2K =: 0 1 NB. K = (1 *k) + 0
K2C =: _273 1 NB. C = (1 *k) - 273
K2F =: _459.67 1.8 NB. F = (1.8*k) - 459.67
K2R =: 0 1.8 NB. R = (1.8*k) + 0
 
NB. Do all conversions at once (eval
NB. polynomials in parallel). This is the
NB. numeric matrix J programs would manipulate
NB. directly.
k2KCFR =: (K2K , K2C , K2F ,: K2R) p./ ]
Example:
   NB. Format matrix for printing & tag each
NB. temp with scale, for human legibility
fmt =: [: (;:inv"1) 0 _1 |: 'KCFR' ;"0 1"_1 '0.2' 8!:0 ]
kcfr =: [email protected]
 
kcfr 21
K 21.00
C -252.00
F -421.87
R 37.80
 
kcfr 0 NB. Absolute zero
K 0.00
C -273.00
F -459.67
R 0.00
 
kcfr 21 100 300 NB. List of temps works fine
K 21.00 100.00 300.00
C -252.00 -173.00 27.00
F -421.87 -279.67 80.33
R 37.80 180.00 540.00

Notes: The approach is founded on polynomials, one for each conversion (e.g. Fahrenheit = 1.8*x - 459.67 where x is measured in degrees Kelvin), and all polynomials are evaluated simultaneously using the built-in p.. Through some code decorations (specifically the / in p./ the "0 1"_1 and the 0 _1 |:), we permit our function to convert arrays of temperatures of arbitrarily high dimension (a single temp, lists of temps, tables of temps, cubes of temps, etc).

The REXX program can be seen at   ──►   Temperature conversion/REXX

This REXX version supports   57   different temperature scales.

Scientific note:   at temperatures above   1 Planck,   quantum gravitational effects become relevant, and current physical theory breaks down because there is a lack of a theory of quantum gravity.
