To convert degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvin (°F to K) and to convert Kelvin to Fahrenheit degrees (K to °F), you may use the converter above. Alternatively, you may use the Fahrenheit to Kelvin conversion table for a fast lookup.
Below, you will find information on how to convert degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvin and how to convert Kelvin to Fahrenheit degrees, including the formulas and example conversions.
How to convert Fahrenheit to Kelvin?
To convert Fahrenheit to Kelvin, add 459.67 to the Fahrenheit value and divide by 1.8.
For example, to convert 76 Fahrenheit to Kelvin, add 459.67 to 76 and divide by 1.8, that makes 76 Fahrenheit is equal to 297.59 Kelvin.
Fahrenheit to Kelvin formula
Kelvin = (Fahrenheit + 459.67) / 1.8
How to convert Kelvin to Fahrenheit?
To convert Kelvin to Fahrenheit, multiply the Kelvin value by 1.8 and subtract 459.67 from the result.
For example, to convert 300 Kelvin to Fahrenheit degrees, multiply 300 by 1.8 and subtract 459.67 from the result, that makes 80.33 degrees Fahrenheit is equal to 300 Kelvin.
Kelvin to Fahrenheit formula
Fahrenheit = (Kelvin * 1.8) - 459.67
What is Kelvin?
Kelvin is the base unit of temperature in metric system and formally defined as 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of pure water. The symbol is "K".
- Freezing point of water = 273.15 K
- Boiling point of water = 373.15 K
- Absolute zero = 0 K
What is Fahrenheit?
Fahrenheit is a temperature scale with the freezing point of water is 32 degrees and the boiling point of water is 212 degrees under standard atmospheric pressure (101.325 kPa). Commonly used in the United States and named after Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. The symbol is "°F".
- Freezing point of water = 32 °F
- Boiling point of water = 212 °F
- Absolute zero = -459.67 °F
