# How do you convert Kelvin to Fahrenheit?

##### 2 Answers

#### Answer:

Convert into Celsius first, then from Celsius into Fahrenheit.

#### Explanation:

Kelvin is a derivative temperature of Celsius, therefore you must convert into Celsius first, before converting into Fahrenheit.

To convert Kelvin into Celsius, you simply add 273.15.

E.g.

#T_"C" = T_"K" + 273.15#

#=-273.15K + 273.15#

#=0#

To convert Celsius into Fahrenheit, you have to multiply the Celsius temperature with

E.g.

#T_"F" = T_"C"(9/5)+32#

#=0(9/5)+32#

#=0+32#

#=32#

Hope this helps :)

By combining two formulas.

#""^@ "F" = 9/5("K") - 459.67#

Normally, we consider

#""^@ "C" + 273.15 = "K"#

#""^@ "F" = 9/5(""^@ "C") + 32#

You *could* use both formulas to do the conversion, or you could substitute one into the other and derive a new formula.

Since

#""^@ "F" = 9/5("K" - 273.15) + 32#

With some simplification, we obtain the conversion formula from

#color(blue)(""^@ "F" = 9/5("K") - 459.67)#

Notice that this looks similar to the

**This demonstrates that the Fahrenheit scale has different intervals in comparison to the Celsius and Kelvin scales.**
