Kelvin to Fahrenheit | K to °F
Convert Kelvin to temperature in degrees Fahrenheit and show solution with steps.
Kelvin K to Fahrenheit °F Formula
°F equals K multiplied by 9, divided by 5, minus 459.67.
Another way to write this formula, which can be easier to remember for some people is as follows. Since 9/5 equals 1.8, this formula can be stated: °F equals K multiplied by 1.8 minus 459.67.
How to Convert Kelvin to Fahrenheit
- Multiply Kelvin by 1.8 (or 9/5)
- Subtract 459.67 from the product from step 1
For example, to convert 373.15 Kelvin to degrees Fahrenheit, we plug our numbers into the formula as shown below:
°F = (373.15 × (9/5)) - 459.67
°F = (373.15 × 1.8) - 459.67
°F = 671.67 - 459.67
°F = 212
373.15 Kelvin is equal to 212 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the boiling point of water.
This calculator will show the steps to solve the K to °F formula so you know how make the conversion yourself.
Fahrenheit is a temperature scale and degrees Fahrenheit are units of temperature on that scale. The symbol for degree Fahrenheit is °F. A temperature such as 72 °F is stated "seventy-two degrees Fahrenheit". On the Fahrenheit scale the boiling point of water is 212 °F, the freezing point of water is 32 °F and absolute zero is −459.67 °F.
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.
