    • Hodgins: Liquid nitrogen freezes at 63 degrees Kelvin, which is -210 degrees Celsius, or -346 degrees Fahrenheit.
      Vincent Nigel-Murray: It's uh unnecessary to say degree Celsius, it's implicit.

      While it is possible to use the units °C and °F with the degree simply implied, it would have been more important to remind Hodgins that the unit °K has been redefined (since 1967) to simply K, so that with this unit, the degree is not just unnecessary, it is actually wrong to use (at least in scientific circles).
