If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?

Mathematically speaking its going to be -136.575 degrees tomorrow :-)

Since in absolute temperature i.e Kelvin. As 0 degrees would be 273.15 Kelvin. Half of it is 136.575 kelvin which is -136.575 degrees celcius.

However I guess it depends from person to person how they perceive the sense of temperature and the relationship of Temperature to their sensory organs perception of how cold it is. So the average person would feel that it is twice as cold as it was yesterday.

Cjk...I beg to differ on the mathematical part of your answer. There is a scale where 0 degrees Kelvin = -273.15 celcius but it has no bearing on this question. In the U.S. zero degrees is 32 F below freezing. In Canada zero degrees is 0 celius which is at the freezing mark.

You are spot on with your final paragraph. I suspect, however, that LindseyBeaver is toying with us and that too is O.K.

Look at yesterday's temperature. It was, say 4.
So tomorrow it'll be -4. Right?
