Temperature and Our Interpretation
You sit down on the couch for your nightly weather report. The TV states that it will be 70 degrees tomorrow. A simple question you should be able to answer is if that temperature means a hot or cold day, right? Well in reality it is not that simple as you will get different answers depending on who you ask. Temperature and our interpretation of hot and cold becomes subject to the environment in which we live. Instead the relationship between hot, cold, and temperature becomes one in perspective to what we are use to rather than an absolute defined temperature range for hot and cold.
