Add 273 to the number given in Celsius


Add 273K to the value that is given in Celsius. Check out the equation below:

For example, say if a block of ice has a temperature of #-22.6^oC#. To find the temperature in Kelvins, you would simply add #-22.6^oC# to 273 to obtain 250.4K.

# K = -22.6^oC + 273 = 250.4#
