# Temperature conversion

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 ## Convert 100 °C to F.

##### Explanation:

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 ## Convert 167°F to Celsius.

##### Explanation:

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 ## Convert 10 K to Celsius.

##### Explanation:

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 ## Convert 50°C to Kelvin.

##### Explanation:

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 ## Convert 50°F to Kelvin.

##### Explanation:

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 ## Convert –228 K to Fahrenheit.

##### Explanation:

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
