# The formula K = C + 273 is used to convert temperatures from degrees Celsius to Kelvin. How do you solve this formula for C?

Oct 23, 2016

The resulting formula would be $C = K - 273$

#### Explanation:

To rearrange ths formula to calculate Celsius temperature you just have to subtract $273$ from both sides:

$K = C + 273$

After subtraction:

$K - 273 = C$

Now you can just change sides to leave the unknown ($C$) on left side::

$C = K - 273$
