# Kelvin to Celsius | K to °C

## Calculator Use

Convert Kelvin to temperature in degrees Celsius.

## K to °C formula

This is how you convert from Kelvin to Celsius.

°C equals K minus 273.15.

For example, to convert 300 Kelvin to degrees Celsius, we plug our numbers into the formula as shown below:

°C = 300 - 273.15

°C = 26.85

300 Kelvin is equal to 26.85 degrees Celsius.

This calculator will show the steps to solve the K to °C formula so you know how make the conversion yourself.

## Kelvin

Kelvin is a temperature scale and Kelvin are units of temperature on that scale. The symbol for Kelvin is K without a degree (°) symbol. On the Kelvin scale the boiling point of water is 373.15 K, the freezing point of water is 273.15 K and absolute zero is 0 K. The Kelvin scale does not contain negative values.

## Celsius

Celsius is a temperature scale and degrees Celsius are units of temperature on that scale. The symbol for degree Celsius is °C. A temperature such as 15 °C is stated "fifteen degrees Celsius". On the Celsius scale the boiling point of water is 100 °C, the freezing point of water is 0 °C and absolute zero is −273.15 °C.
