# Kelvin to Fahrenheit conversion

Our Kelvin to Fahrenheit conversion tool is a free converter that enables you to convert from Kelvin to Fahrenheit easily.

## How to Convert Kelvin to Fahrenheit

To convert a Kelvin temparature to a fahrenheit temparature, use the following fomular:

### What is the formula to convert from Kelvin to Fahrenheit?

°F=(k - 273.15)* 9/5 +32

### Examples

### Convert 5k to fahrenheit

5 k = (5 - 273.15)* 9/5 +32 = -268.15 °F

### Convert 10k to fahrenheit

10 k = (10 - 273.15)* 9/5 +32 = -263.15 °F

### Convert 100k to fahrenheit

100 k = (100 - - 273.15)* 9/5 +32 = 173.15 °F

## Kelvin

### What is a Kelvin?

The kelvin (symbol: K) is the base unit of thermodynamic temperature in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as the energy equivalent of the triple point of water as given by Boltzmann's equation. It is also the unit of the Kelvin scale in which the null point (0 K) is the temperature at which all thermal motion ceases, known as absolute zero.

### What is the Kelvin used for?

The kelvin is used worldwide, particularly in science and engineering, together with the Celsius. This is partially due to the kelvin and the Celsius degree having exactly the same magnitude. Unlike the Celsius and Fahrenheit, the kelvin is not used in meteorological contexts.

## Fahrenheit

### What is a Fahrenheit?

The Fahrenheit (symbol: °F) is a unit of temperature that was widely used prior to metrication. It is currently defined by two fixed points: the temperature at which water freezes, 32°F, and the boiling point of water, 212°F, both at sea level and standard atmospheric pressure. The interval between the freezing and boiling point is divided into 180 equal parts.

### What is the Fahrenheit used for?

Until the 1960's the Fahrenheit scale was the primary scale used in English-speaking countries. Today, most countries around the world use the Celsius temperature scale instead, many having made the change during their metrication processes (conversion to using the metric system of units). However, the Fahrenheit scale is still used as the official temperature scale in a number of countries, including the United States.
