Temperature Conversion Formula

They are many Temperature Conversion methods. Among them Kelvin, Celsius and Fahrenheit are the most commonly used methods. According to Kelvin scale, the freezing point of water is 273.15K and the boiling point is 373.15K. According to Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point of water is 32oF and the boiling point is 212oF. According to Celsius scale, the freezing point of water is 0oC and the boiling point is 100oC.

The Temperature Conversion Formula from Celsius to Kelvin is,

$\large K=C+273.15$

The Temperature Conversion Formula from Fahrenheit to Celsius is,

$\large C=(F-32)\frac{5}{9}$

The Temperature Conversion Formula from Celsius to Fahrenheit is,

$\large F=C(\frac{9}{5})+32$

Solved Examples

Question: What is 30C in Kelvin?

Solution:

The temperature conversion formula from Celsius to Kelvin is,
K = C + 273.15

K = 30 + 273.15
K = 303.15
