Answer:

Subtract #273# from the #"absolute Temperature."#

Explanation:

On the #"Kelvin Scale"#, #"absolute temperature"# is specified to be #-273# #""^@C#. And thus to convert a #"Celsius temperature"# to the #"absolute temperature"#, we simply add #273.15#.........and to convert an #"Absolute temperature"# to the #"Celsius temperature"#, we simply SUBTRACT #273.15#.........

Answer:

#T=t+273.15#

Explanation:

If you want to calculate Celcius degree, just use the above formula.

#t=T-273.15#

t (degrees Celcius)
and T (Kelvin)

Therefore put 298 (T) into equation:

#t=298-273.15#

#t=24.85# degrees Celcius.

Your answer is 24.85 degrees Celcius.
