Thermometers measure temperature and come in many forms and sizes

Convert Kelvins to Fahrenheit

Convert from kelvins to fahrenheit with this simple formula:
fahrenheit = ( ( kelvin ) - 273.15) * 9 / 5 + 32

1 Kelvin = -457.87° Fahrenheit

Learn How to Convert Kelvins to Fahrenheit Using our Conversion Formula

Converting a kelvin temperature measurement to a fahrenheit measurement involves using the formula:
fahrenheit = ( ( kelvin ) - 273.15) * 9 / 5 + 32.
Insert the temperature measurement in the formula and then solve to find the result.

For example, to convert 50 K to Fahrenheit:
50 K = (( 50 - 273.15) * 9 / 5 + 32) = -369.67° F

Kelvins and fahrenheit are both units used to measure temperature. Learn more about temperature and find more temperature measurement conversion calculators. Kelvin can be abbreviated as K, for example 1 kelvin can be written as 1K. Fahrenheit can be abbreviated as F, for example 1° fahrenheit can be written as 1° F.

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.
