Convert the following temperatures to the Celsius scale. (a) 293 K (b) 470 K.

We know the relationship:

Temperature in Kelvin = Temperature in °C + 273

Substitute the given value in the equation and then calculate the other unknown value.

To change a temperature on the Kelvin scale to the Celsius scale we have to subtract 273 from the given temperature

a) 293 K = (293 – 273)

= 20 °C

b) 470 K = (470 – 273)

= 197 °C
