Fahrenheit temperature scale is mostly used in united states and for some applications in canada. Freezing point of water is 32 fahrenheits and the boiling point of water is 212 fahrenheit degrees.
The abbreviation is "oF".
Kelvin is the base unit of temperature in metric system and scientifically it is the main unit. The absolute zero is defined to be 0 K. The freezing point of water is 273.15 K and boiling point is 373.15
K. The difference is 100 as it is in the celsius scale. The term "degree" is not used. The abbreviation is "K".
The fahrenheit to kelvin conversion formulas:
Kelvin = (Fahrenheit + 459.67) * 5 / 9
or Kelvin = (Fahrenheit - 32) * 5 / 9 + 273.15
For example: 68 o
F = (68 + 459.67) * 5 / 9 = 293.15 K
