# Kelvin

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Kelvin, abbreviated as K, is a unit of temperature normally used for scientific calculations. Unlike celsius, fahrenheit and rankine, the word degree is not used. Since Kelvin starts with absolute zero it has no negative numbers.

## KELVIN FORMULAs

 $$\large{ T_{ °K} =273.15 ° + T_ { °C} }$$ $$\large{ T_{ °K} = \frac {T_ { °F} \;+\; 459.67°}{1.8} }$$ $$\large{ T_{°K} = \frac {T_{ °R}} {1.8} }$$

### Where:

 Units English Metric $$\large{ T }$$ = temperature $$\large{ T }$$ $$\large{ T }$$ $$\large{ C }$$ = celsius - $$\large{ C }$$ $$\large{ F }$$ = fahrenheit $$\large{ F }$$ - $$\large{ K }$$ = kelvin - $$\large{ K }$$ $$\large{ R }$$ = rankine $$\large{ R }$$ -
