Problem 30Q

The following equation can be used to convert Celsius temperature to Kelvin temperature.

K = °C + 273.15

Use algebra to change the equation to convert Kelvin temperature to Celsius temperature.

Solution 30Q

The temperature in Celsius scale can be converted to kelvin by using the following equation

K = °C + 273.15

Similarly the conversion of Kelvin temperature to Celsius temperature can be carried out as follows,

If we rewrite the above given equation then,

K = °C + 273.15

K-273.15 = °C

Or °C= K-273.15

Hence the equation to convert Kelvin temperature to Celsius temperature is

°C= K-273.15
