Temperature Conversion

Temperature conversion is the process of changing temperature measurements from one unit to another. Temperature is how hot or cold something is, and we commonly measure it in Celsius (°C), Fahrenheit (°F), and Kelvin (K).

Converting temperatures helps us understand them better in different situations. For example, you might need to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit to understand weather reports, or from Kelvin to Celsius for science experiments.

To convert temperatures, we use specific formulas. For instance:

– To go from Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply by 9/5 and add 32.

– To go from Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 and then multiply by 5/9.

– To convert Celsius to Kelvin, add 273.15.

– To convert Kelvin to Celsius, subtract 273.15.

Temperature conversion is handy for making sense of temperatures in everyday life and science, allowing us to compare temperatures across different scales.
