# Temperature Conversion Calculator

## Calculator Use

Temperature conversions are performed by using a formula, which differs depending on the two temperature scales you are converting between.

For example, to convert 50 degrees Celsius (centigrade) to Fahrenheit, we plug our numbers into the formula as shown below: F = C * 9/5 + 32

F = 50 * 9/5 + 32

F =
90 + 32

F = 122

50 degrees Celsius is equal to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

## Formulas for Converting Temperature Scales:

The following temperature conversion formulas are used to convert from one temperature scale to another.

Celsius to Fahrenheit Conversion

[°F] = [°C] × 9/5 + 32

Celsius to Kelvin Conversion

[K] = [°C] + 273.15

Celsius to Rankine Conversion

[°R] = [°C] × 9/5 + 491.67

Fahrenheit to Celsius Conversion

[°C] = ([°F] − 32) × 5/9

Fahrenheit to Kelvin Conversion

[K] = ([°F] + 459.67) × 5/9

Fahrenheit to Rankine Conversion

[°R] = [°F] + 459.67

Kelvin to Celsius Conversion

[°C] = [K] − 273.15

Kelvin to Fahrenheit Conversion

[°F] = [K] × 9/5 − 459.67

Kelvin to Rankine Conversion

[°R] = [K] × 9/5

Rankine to Celsius Conversion

[°C] = [°R] × 5/9 − 273.15

Rankine to Fahrenheit Conversion

[°F] = [°R] − 459.67

Rankine to Kelvin Conversion

[K] = [°R] × 5/9
