Answer:

#"310K"# would be #37^@"C"#

Explanation:

The Kelvin scale and Celsius scale are the same, so if the temperature increased by #"1K"# then it also increases by #1^@"C"#.

The only difference between the two scales is that Kelvin starts at #"0K"#, which is equivalent to absolute zero or #-273^@"C"#.

Room temperature in Kelvin is about #"298K"# #(25^@"C")#.
