Celsius to kelvin formula
The topic covers the explanation of conversion from Celsius to kelvin and how it is measured and also covers the table representable Celsius to kelvin conversion and solved examples
Celsius
The global agreement defines the Celsius temperature scale in phrases of two fixed factors: the ice point and the stream point. The ice point is defined as 0o Celsius, and the circulate point as 100o Celsius.
Kelvin
The Kelvin is defined as a fraction of 1/273.16 of the triple factor of water’s thermodynamic temperature. On the thermodynamic temperature scale, the unit of temperature is the Kelvin. Lord Kelvin devised a thermodynamic scale that is independent of the properties of any particular substance. Kelvin divides the temperature difference between ice and steam points into 100 divisions..

So, the formula for Celsius to kelvin is:
K = c + 273.15
Solved examples
1. Convert 23 °c to kelvin.
Required solution:
So kelvin will be calculated as
= Celsius temperature + 273.15
= 23 + 273.15
= 296.15k
2. Convert 114 °c to kelvin.
Required solution:
So kelvin will be calculated as
= Celsius temperature + 273.15
= 114 + 273.15
= 387.15k
3. Convert -23 °c to kelvin.
Required solution:
So kelvin will be calculated as
= Celsius temperature + 273.15
= -23 + 273.15
= 250.15k
