Q:

What is the temperature of GHD straighteners?

A:

Quick Answer

GHD Gold straighteners operate at temperatures of between 347 and 365 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature is hot enough to easily straighten hair with just a few passes, but not hot enough to cause hair damage.

Full Answer

The GHD Gold straightener reaches its optimal temperature in around 40 seconds and users cannot change the temperature. When it gets hot enough, the straightener will beep three times, letting the user know it is ready.

When straightening the hair, the fewer passes it takes to achieve the ideal style, the better it is for the hair. More passes equals more drying. When a straightener reaches 419 degrees Fahrenheit, it causes the hair to melt, and the damage from that cannot be fixed.

  • Q:

    How fast does frostbite occur?

    A:

    The rate of which frostbite occurs will depend on the temperature and the wind speed; however, in temperatures that are considered to be extremely cold, which depending on these two factors can be anywhere from -32 to -72 degrees Fahrenheit, exposed skin is vulnerable to frostbite after approximately 10 minutes and in temperatures that are considered to be frigidly cold, which is anywhere from -48 to -98 F with higher wind speeds, exposed skin can become frostbitten in as little as 5 minutes, as reported by the National Weather Service. Wind chill is dependent on the temperature and the wind speeds, and quicker wind speeds can help accelerate the rate of frostbite.

    What are the temperatures of the nine planets?

    A:

    The planets in the solar system have temperatures that can often vary from a maximum to a minimum temperature, such as Mercury that has a minimum temperature of -300 degrees Fahrenheit and maximum of 870. These differences in temperatures occur because the side of Mercury that is facing the sun gets very hot since Mercury is so close to the sun, while its dark side does not experience this extreme heat.

    What is the average temperature on Jupiter?

    A:

    The planet Jupiter has an average temperature of -238 degrees Fahrenheit, but temperatures can reach as high as 36,000 degrees in its rocky core. There are also clouds on Jupiter that reach temperatures as low as -280 degrees. These clouds cover the the entire planet and most likely consists of ammonia ice crystals that change to ammonia droplets at lower altitudes.
