Convert Fahrenheit to Kelvins
Learn How to Convert Fahrenheit to Kelvins Using our Conversion Formula
Converting a fahrenheit temperature measurement to a kelvin measurement involves using the formula:
kelvins = ( ( ( degrees fahrenheit ) - 32 ) * 5 / 9 ) + 273.15.
Insert the temperature measurement in the formula and then solve to find the result.
For example, to convert 50° to Kelvin:
50° F = (( ( 50 - 32 ) * 5 / 9 ) + 273.15) = 283.15 K
Fahrenheit and kelvins are both units used to measure temperature. Learn more about temperature and find more temperature measurement conversion calculators. Fahrenheit can be abbreviated as F, for example 1° fahrenheit can be written as 1° F. Kelvin can be abbreviated as K, for example 1 kelvin can be written as 1K.
The Fahrenheit temperature scale is primarily used in the United States, but other countries such as the Bahamas, Belize, the Cayman Islands, and Palau also use it. The temperature scale is divided into 180 even intervals between the freezing and boiling point of water, each of those intervals is a degree. Water freezes at 32° F and boils at 212° F. Physicist Gabriel Daniel created the scale in 1724.
The Kelvin scale is a temperature scale where 0 is the point where all thermal motion ceases and was created by Lord Kelvin. The temperature scale does not use measurements in degrees, but instead of simply K. It's often used in the physical sciences due to its absolute nature. 0 K is equal to −273.15° C.
