3 500°C/hr to 1270C  900°F/hr to 2318F  0 5:04  
4 999°C/hr to 1100C  1798°F/hr to 2012F  0 5:14  
5 10°C/hr to 1075C  18°F/hr to 1967F  0 7:44  
Start temperature assumed: 25°C or 75°F
100°F is 37°C, but 100 fahrenheit degrees is 55 celsius degrees, that is an important distinction to understand the above temperature conversions.
