Kelvin

KELVIN

Kelvin ( \(K\) ) is a unit of temperature normally used for scientific calculations. Unlike celsius, fahrenheit and rankine, the word degree is not used. Since Kelvin starts with absolute zero it has no negative numbers.

KELVIN FORMULA

\(T_{ °K}=273.15 °\;+\; T_ { °C} \)

\(T_{ °K}= \frac {T_ { °F} \;+\; 459.67°}{1.8} \)

\(T_{°K}= \frac {T_{ °R}} {1.8} \)

Where:

\(T\) = temperature

\(C \) = celsius

\(F\) = fahrenheit

\(K \)= kelvin

\(R\) = rankine
