Perform each temperature conversion.

(a) 212 °F to Celsius (temperature of boiling water)

(b) 77 K to Fahrenheit (temperature of liquid nitrogen)

(c) 25 °C to kelvins (room temperature)

(d) 98.6 °F to kelvins (body temperature)

Solution 65P :

Step 1:

(a) 212 °F to Celsius (temperature of boiling water) :

Steps to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius :

Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature. Multiply this number by 5. Divide this number by 9.Mathematically , it is represented as :

T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) × 5/9

Now, let’s convert the temperature given in °F to Celsius :

Given °F = 212 °F

= 212 - 32

= 180.

= 180

= 100.

Hence, 212 °F in Celsius is 100 oC.

Step 2:

(b) 77 K to Fahrenheit (temperature of liquid nitrogen) :

Steps to convert Kelvin to Fahrenheit :

Subtract 273.15 from your Kelvin temperature Multiply this number by 9/5. Add 32 to this number.Mathematically , it can be represented as :

T(°F) = (T(°K) - 273.15)× 9/5 +32

Now, let’s convert the temperature given in K to Fahrenheit :

Given K = 77 F

= 77-273.15

= -196.15

= -353.07 + 32

= -321.07

Hence, 77 K in Fahrenheit is -321.07 oF.
