Celsius, Kelvin, and Fahrenheit

Among many temperature scales, Celsius,Kelvin & Fahrenheit are most commonly used temperature units.

Celsius scale is defined by an international agreement in regards to two fixed points, the stream point, and the ice point. The temperature of the stream point is defined as 100° celsius while that of the ice point is defined as 0° celsius. 

Kelvin is the unit of the thermodynamic temperature scale is equal to the fraction 1273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of water’s triple point.

Fahrenheit temperature scale is a scale based on 32 for the freezing point of water and 212 for the boiling point of water, the interval between the two being divided into 180 parts. The Fahrenheit temperature scale is named for German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit and is the measurement of temperature commonly used by the United States

Temperature Conversion Formulas

There are three main conversions of temperature which are:

  • Conversion Between Celsius and Kelvin
  • Conversion Between Fahrenheit and Kelvin
  • Conversion Between Celsius and Fahrenheit

Temperature Conversion Formula -Celsius and Kelvin

K = C + 273.15

Temperature Conversion Formula -Kelvin to Celsius

C = K − 273.15

Temperature Conversion Formula -Celsius to Fahrenheit

C = (F − 32) × 5⁄9

Temperature Conversion Formula -Fahrenheit to Kelvin

F = (K – 273.15) × 9⁄5 + 32

Conversion of Temperature Between Fahrenheit and Celsius

Temperature Conversion Formula Celsius to Fahrenheit :

F = C(9⁄5) + 32

Temperature Conversion Formula Fahrenheit to Kelvin

K = (F − 32) × 5⁄9 + 273.15
