# How do we convert from the Celsius scale to the Kelvin scale?

Subtract $273$ from the $\text{absolute Temperature.}$

#### Explanation:

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

$T = t + 273.15$

#### 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.
