Fahrenheit to Kelvin conversion formula:
Kelvin = (Fahrenheit + 459.67) ÷ 1.8
For example: 68 °F = (68 + 459.67) ÷ 1.8 = 293.15 Kelvin
What is Fahrenheit?
Fahrenheit is a temperature scale with 32 degrees as the freezing point of water and 212 degrees as the boiling point of water under standard atmospheric pressure (101.325 kPa). The symbol is "°F".
- Freezing point of water = 32 °F
- Boiling point of water = 212 °F
- Absolute zero = -459.67 °F
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
