Step 1 of 7
The temperature can be represented in three units Kelvin, degrees Celsius, and degrees Fahrenheit. These units are interconvertible, and the relationship between them is governed as follows:

$$1^{\circ}C + 273 = 274\;K$$
$$1^{\circ}F = 255.98\; K$$
$$(\left(1 \;^{\circ}F-32\right) \times 5/9+273 =255.98\; K)$$
$$1 \;^{\circ}F =-17.22\; ^{\circ} C$$
$$(\left(1 \;^{\circ}F-32\right) \times 5/9=- 17.22\;{^\circ}C )$$
