In converting temperature from one scale to another, it is important to familiarize a few formulas in order to get the correct conversion.

In converting temperatures in Celsius scale into Fahrenheit scale, here are the steps:

**Step #1:**
Multiply the temperature by 9

**
Step #2:
**
Then divide by 5

**Step #3:** Then add by 32

The formula is

**Step #1:** Multiply the temperature by 9.

**100 x 9 = 900**

**Step #2:** Then divide by 5.

**900 ÷ 5 = 180**

**Step #3:** Then add by 32.

**180 + 32 = 212**

Therefore, 100°C = **212°F**

In converting temperatures in Fahrenheit scale into Celsius scale, here are the steps:

**Step #1:**
Subtract 32 from the temperature

**
Step #2:
**
Then multiply by 5

**Step #3:** Then divide by 9

The formula is

**Step #1:** Subtract 32 from the temperature.

**167 – 32 = 135**

**Step #2:** Then multiply by 5.

**135 x 5 =675**

**Step #3:** Then divide by 9.

**675 ÷ 9 = 75**

Therefore, 167°F = **75°C**

In converting temperatures in Kelvin scale into Celsius scale, __add the temperature by 273__.

The formula is

**Step #1:** Add the temperature by 273.

**10 + 273 = 283**

Therefore, 10 K = **283°C**

In converting temperatures in Celsius scale into Kelvin scale, __subtract the temperature by 273__.

The formula is

**Step #1:** Subtract the temperature by 273.

**50 – 273 = –223**

Therefore, 50°C = **–223 K**

In converting temperatures in Fahrenheit scale into Kelvin scale, here are the steps:

**Step #1:** Convert into Celsius scale.

**Step #2:** Subtract by 273.

The formula is

**Step #1:** Convert into Celsius scale.

**50 – 32 = 48**

**18 x 5 = 90**

**90 ÷ 9 = 10**

So,50°F = 10°C

**Step #2:** Subtract the temperature by 273.

**10 – 273 = –263**

Therefore, 50°F = **–263 K**

In converting temperatures in Kelvin scale into Fahrenheit scale, here are the steps:

**Step #1:** Convert into Celsius by adding 273.

**Step #2:** Convert into Fahrenheit scale.

The formula is

**Step #1:** Convert into Celsius by adding 273.

**–228 + 273= 45**

So, –228 K= 45°C

**Step #2:** Convert into Fahrenheit scale.

**45 x 9 = 405**

**405 ÷ 5 = 81**

**81 + 32 = 113**

Therefore, –228 K = **113°F**
