255.92778 Kelvin (K)

Fahrenheit : Fahrenheit (symbol: °F) is a unit of measurement for temperature. In most countries during the mid to late 20th century, the Fahrenheit scale was replaced by the Celsius scale. However, it remains the official scale of the United States, Cayman Islands and Belize.

Kelvin : The Kelvin (symbol: K) is a unit of measurement for temperature, which also is one of the seven base units in the International System of Units (SI). The Kelvin is the major unit of measurement in the physical sciences, but is often used in conjunction with the degree Celsius.

FAQ about Fahrenheit to Kelvin Conversion

0 degrees Fahrenheit is equal to 255.37 degrees Kelvin:

0 °F = 255.37 K

The temperature T in Kelvin (K) is equal to the temperature T in degrees Fahrenheit (°F) plus 459.67, times 5/9, that conversion formula:

T(K) = (T(°F) + 459.67)×5/9

10 Fahrenheit is equal to 260.92778 Kelvin:

10°F = (10°F + 459.67)×5/9 = 260.92778K

273.15 Kelvin is equal to 32 Fahrenheit:

273.15K = 273.15K × 9/5 - 459.67 = 32°F

T(K) = (86(°F) + 459.67)×5/9 = 303.15K

How does the Kelvin scale compare to the Fahrenheit scale?
2. Gulshan Aug 19, 2016 at 11:45 am
Hi Angle,

The Kelvin and Fahrenheit scales are both temperature scales, but they have different characteristics and applications.

The Kelvin scale starts at absolute zero (0 K), which is the lowest possible theoretical temperature where all molecular motion approaches zero. In contrast, the Fahrenheit scale has its zero point at the temperature where water freezes when combined with a specific concentration of salt, which is 32°F. The Fahrenheit scale does not have a natural zero point.

Converting between the Kelvin and Fahrenheit scales is not as straightforward as converting between Kelvin and Celsius. To convert from Kelvin to Fahrenheit, you can use the following formula: F = (9/5 * (K - 273.15)) + 32, where F is the temperature in Fahrenheit and K is the temperature in Kelvin.

What is the formula for converting Fahrenheit to Celsius?
4. Gulshan Jun 13, 2016 at 11:54 am
Hi Cylah,

To convert Fahrenheit (°F) to Celsius (°C), you can use the following formula:(°F - 32) x 5/9 = °C

In this formula, you subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature and then multiply the result by 5/9 to get the equivalent temperature in Celsius.

For example, to convert a temperature of 77°F to Celsius, you would use the formula as follows: (77°F - 32) x 5/9 = 25°C, So 77°F is equivalent to 25°C.

How much is 68 Fahrenheit in the Kelvin scale?
8. Gulshan Nov 22, 2014 at 14:01 pm
Temperature(K) = (Temperature(°F) + 459.67)×5/9, So 68ºF = 293.15K
