Key Questions

  • Answer:

    Conversion is quite trivial between the Kelvin scale and the Celsius scale.....

    Explanation:

    On the Kelvin scale, #"absolute zero = 0 K"#...whereas on the Celsius scale, #"absolute zero" = -273.15# #""^@C#. Conversion between the Celsius scale and Fahrenheit scale is a bit more problematic..and I acknowledge that you may be a septic, and so such conversions are necessary.

    For #"Fahrenheit to Celsius"#, subtract #32^@#, then multiply by #5/9#.

    For #"Celsius to Fahrenheit"#, multiply by #9/5#, THEN ADD #32^@#.

    It may be an idea to try to use the Celsius scale exclusively... Most USaian chemists I know would always quote a reaction temperature in Christian units even tho they might use the Fahrenheit scale for how hot/cold it was outside...
