The temperature T in degrees Fahrenheit (°F) is equal to the temperature T in Kelvin (K) times 9/5, minus 459.67. Kelvin and Fahrenheit are two important temperature scales. Kelvin is a standard metric scale, with a degree the same size as the Celsius degree but with its zero points at absolute zero. Fahrenheit is the temperature most commonly used in the United States.
It is easy to convert Kelvin to Fahrenheit with these four steps.
- Subtract 273.15 from your Kelvin temperature
