Here is our wind chill calculator allows you to measure the wind chill temperature. This is, basically, the temperature that is felt by our skin due to wind and not the actual one. Our body tends to lose heat through convection, conduction, radiation and evaporation. When you are in the cold air, your heat loss rate will increase significantly because of wind around your body. This makes the body to feel that the temperature is lower than what the actual measure is. This wind chill calculator suggests what temperature your body is actually feeling by taking into consideration the wind speed and the actual temperature.
On the contrary, the high level of humidity reduces sweat evaporation during summers. This makes the body to feel higher temperature as compared to the actual one.
According to the new Wind Chill Index that is applicable after November 2001, here is the formula for measuring Wind Chill Temperature.
Wind Chill Temperature = 35.74 + 0.6215×T - 35.75*V0.16 + 0.4275*T*V0.16
here T is actual air temperature specified in fahrenheit, while V refers to wind speed measured in mph.
How This Wind Chill Calculator Works?
This wind chill calculator requires you to enter the values for wind speed and air temperature. There are multiple units available for each of these values and you can specify them in of the desired units. After entering the values and selecting appropriate units from the list, all you have to do is to hit the calculate button and the wind chill calculator does the rest by performing the calculations and presenting you the results.
There are, basically, two results shown. The first one shows the Wind Chill temperature according to the New Index while the other one shows the temperature value according to the Old Index. All the values are mentioned in three different units as well i.e. Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin.
So, use this wind chill calculator for determining what temperature is your body actually feeling in a windy situation.
