    1. Utilizing this conversion equation, determine what the following Fahrenheit temperatures would be in Centigrade and label these on the chart here:\[(^\circ C) = [(^\circ F) - 32] \times 5/9 \nonumber \]
      • \(250^\circ F\) is ______________________________________ \(^\circ C\)(autoclave)
      • \(212^\circ F\) (boiling) is _______________________________ \(^\circ C\)
      • \(135^\circ F\) is _____________________________________ \(^\circ C\)
      • \(107^\circ F\) is _____________________________________ \(^\circ C\)
      • \(98.6^\circ F\) (body temp.) is __________________________ \(^\circ C\)
      • \(77^\circ F\) (RT) is ___________________________________ \(^\circ C\)
      • \(41^\circ F\) is _______________________________________ \(^\circ C\)
      • \(32^\circ F\) (freezing) is _______________________________ \(^\circ C\)
    2. What is the primary effect temperature has on living cells?
