Kelvin to Celsius conversion

It is a conversion calculator that is used to convert Kelvins (K) to degrees Celsius (°C). It has two active controls that perform independent functions of the calculator. It has a blank text field where you enter the temperature value in Kelvin. The ‘Convert' button is used to execute the conversions from Kelvin to degrees Celsius. If you have new values in Kelvin, you can readjust the calculator using the ‘Reset' button.

The results in degrees Celsius will be displayed on the platform below the two controls. In a situation where all your values are in degrees Celsius, you will use the Celsius to Kelvin Conversion Calculator. Although this converter is quick and reliable, it can only perform one conversion at a time. The method used in performing the calculation is indicated at the bottom platform of the calculator.

Example

Convert 200 Kelvin to degrees Celsius

Solution

First, enter the temperature value 200 in the blank text field and then click the ‘Convert' button. The calculator displays the results as -73.15 degrees Celsius.

Calculation

0 ° K = -273.15 °C

200k – 273.15 °C = -73.15°C

Formula of converting Kelvin to degrees Celsius

0° K = -273.15 °C is the standard for all conversions used by the Kelvin to Celsius Conversion Calculator. Therefore, it means that zero degrees Kelvin is equivalent to -273.15 degrees Celsius.

T (°C) = T (K) -273.15 is the method used by the calculator in executing the conversions. It implies that the temperature in degrees Celsius is calculated by subtracting -273.15°C from the temperature in Kelvins.

Using the example above, the calculation will be indicated as;

T (°C) = 200 K – 273.15 ° C = -73.15°C

The Kelvin to Celsius conversion table indicates the basic conversions such as the average body temperature, freezing/melting point of water, room temperature and boiling point of water.
