# Celsius Formula

## Celsius Formula

The conversion of temperature between the three different temperature scales of Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin is made easier by the Celsius Formula. Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius changed the name of the celsius, which was previously known as the centigrade. The display unit of temperature on a thermometer, which is used to measure temperature, is Celsius. The formula for converting from celsius to fahrenheit is helpful. To better comprehend the Celsius Formula, students can study more about it and work through a few examples.

The temperature in degrees is converted into the three units of Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin using the Celsius Formula. There are several conversion formulas that aid in determining the exact measurement when determining the Celsius Formula. Students can explore the differences between the Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin temperature scales through the note and study materials available for the Celsius Formula on the Extramarks website and mobile application.

## Celsius to Fahrenheit Conversion

The temperature is converted from Celsius to Fahrenheit using this formula. Scales of temperature offer a means of determining how warm or frigid a body is. Temperature scales include celsius and fahrenheit. On a Fahrenheit scale, water freezes at 32 degrees and boils at 212 degrees, but on a Celsius or centigrade scale, water freezes at 0 degrees and boils at 100 degrees. Fahrenheit is represented by the symbol °F, whereas Celsius is represented by °C. As a result, the Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion formula is often known as the C to F conversion formula.

### Celsius to Kelvin Conversion Formula

The formula T (K) = T (°C) + 273.15 can be used to convert between Celsius and Kelvin. These two temperature units are extremely dissimilar to one another. The temperature is expressed in °C on the Celsius scale, which was created by Anders Celsius. Lord Kelvin created the Kelvin scale, and K stands for the Kelvin unit of temperature.

### Solved Example

Example 1: What is 400 Kelvin converted to Celsius?

Solution: Using the celsius conversion formula, K = 400 C = K -273 C = 400 – 273 C = 127°C

Because of this, the temperature is 127°C after conversion.
