How to Convert Delisle to Kelvins

Convert degrees Delisle to kelvins with this simple formula:

kelvins = 373.15 - [°De] × 2 / 3

Insert the [°De] temperature measurement in the formula and then solve to find the result.

For example, let's convert 50 °De to kelvins:

50 °De = ( 373.15 - 50 × 2 / 3 ) = 339.816667 K

What Is Delisle?

The Delisle scale is a temperature scale that sets a fixed zero point equal to the temperature of boiling water. The Delisle scale is uses incrementing degrees as the temperature decreases. It runs from 0 degrees at the boiling point of water to 150 degrees at the the freezing point.

Delisle can be abbreviated as De; for example, 1 degree Delisle can be written as 1 °De.

What Is a Kelvin?

The Kelvin scale is an absolute temperature scale that uses absolute zero as the starting point. The kelvin is defined in terms of the Boltzmann constant, which is a measure of the energy of motion corresponding to one kelvin.

More specifically, one kelvin is equal to the change of thermodynamic temperature that results in a change of thermal energy kT by 1.380649 × 10−23 J.[1]

0 kelvins are equal to −273.15 degrees Celsius, which is the point of absolute zero.

The kelvin is the SI base unit for temperature in the metric system. Kelvins can be abbreviated as K; for example, 1 kelvin can be written as 1 K.

The kelvin scale is different from other temperature scales in that it is not expressed in degrees, values are expressed in kelvins. When using the Kelvin scale in writing, the "k" is capitalized, however when using the kelvin as a unit the "k" should be lower-case, even though it is named for a person.
