Fahrenheit to Kelvin Conversion

It is a conversion tool that is used to convert degrees Fahrenheit (°F) to Kelvin (K). It has a blank text field where you enter the value in degrees Fahrenheit. The ‘Convert' button is used to initiate the conversions from degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvin. If you want to carry out new calculations, the ‘Reset' button will be useful in readjusting the calculator.

The results in degrees Kelvins will be displayed below the two controls. The program used in the Fahrenheit to Kelvin conversion calculator allows you to get the results with a single click of the ‘Convert' button. Since it can only perform one conversion at a time, use the ‘Reset' button to readjust the calculator.

Example

Convert 30 degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvin.

Solution

The first procedure is to enter the temperature 30 in the blank text field. Click the ‘Convert' button to execute the conversion. The results will be displayed as 272.039 Kelvins below the two controls.

Calculation

(30 °F + 459.67) x 5/9

= 272.039 K

Formula of converting degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvins

This conversion tool uses a simple procedure to carry out its calculations. The fact that you get results within a single click makes it quick and reliable.

0 °F = 255.372 °K is the standard of conversion used by the calculator. Therefore, it means that zero degrees Fahrenheit is equivalent to 255.372 degrees Kelvin.

T (K) = (T (°F) + 459.67) x 5/9 is the method used by the converter in performing the calculations. It implies that the temperature in Kelvin is calculated by adding the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit to 459.67 and then multiplied by 5/9. This gives you the results in Kelvin.

Using the example above, it can be shown as;

T (K) = (30°F + 459.67) x 5/9 = 272.039
