# How do you convert the following temperature in Kelvin? 100 C, 27 C, and 580 C

May 22, 2017

${100}^{\circ} = 27 , 415 \text{ K}$
${27}^{\circ} \text{C"=74,02.05" K}$
${580}^{\circ} \text{C"=159,007" K}$

#### Explanation:

Step 1. Find the Celsius to Kelvin conversion formula
${1}^{\circ} \text{C"=274.15" K}$

The two conversion factors that you can multiply are
$\left({1}^{\circ} \text{C")/(274.15" K}\right)$ or $\left(274.15 \text{ K")/(1^@ "C}\right)$

Step 2. For each Celsius, multiply by conversion factor
(Note: ignoring significant figures)

${100}^{\circ} \text{C"xx(274.15" K")/(1^@ "C")=27,415" K}$

${27}^{\circ} \text{C"xx(274.15" K")/(1^@ "C")=74,02.05" K}$

${580}^{\circ} \text{C"xx(274.15" K")/(1^@ "C")=159,007" K}$
