What are the equivalents of 0 K, 0°C, and 0°F in the other temperature scales?
Celsius and Fahrenheit are scales that were established from reference points (for example boiling point of water or melting point of water).
To get from °C to °F, the following function is used:
To get from °F to °C, the following function is used:
0 Kelvin is the absolute zero point, which is the point where no molecule moves at all. This is the same as -273.15°C. Kelvin is an international SI unit.
To get from Kelvin to °C, the following function is used:
To get from °C to Kelvin, the following function is used:
0 Kelvin gives
Then we calculate fahrenheit °C = -273.15 gives
Filling in 0 °F, we get:
THen we calculate the amount of Kelvin:
We calculate Kelvin at 0°C with the function:
With the function given, we can calculate °F at 0 °C
