# Kelvin To Celsius Formula

Kelvin and Celsius scales are the most frequently used temperature assessing scales in thermometer business.The size of 1 degree on Kelvin scale is similar to the size of 1 degree on Celsius scale that is, the difference or alteration in temperature is similar on both the balances. The Kelvin and Celsius Relation on the scale is articulated as

$0^{\circ}Celsius=273.15\;&space;Kelvin$

To transform Celsius into Kelvin, this relation can be used:

Celsius = Kelvin – 273.15

Kelvin to Celsius formula is made use of to change the temperature given in Kelvin to degree Celsius.

Kelvin to Celsius – Solved Examples

Underneath are problems based on Kelvin to Celsius conversion.

Problem 1: Convert the following into Celsius.
(a) 45 K
(b) 290 K
(c) 313 K

(a) 45 K = 45 – 273 = – 228oC
(b) 290 K = 290 – 273 = 17oC
(c) 313 K = 313 – 273 = 40oC
Problem 2: The boiling point of hydrogen is 20.28 K and its melting point is 14.01 K. Compute its temperature in Celsius.
