    Rationale

    Change all Fahrenheit temperatures and tolerances to whole numbers in ASTM D1785 sections 8.1 & 8.2. Requiring Fahrenheit temperature measurements in tenths of a degree requires roughly 20 times the measurement precision as that required to measure the same temperature in whole degrees Centigrade.
