Fahrenheit Degrees to Kelvin, °F > K

Converts temperature from degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvin.

Degrees Fahrenheit

Fahrenheit temperature scale

In this temperature scale, the freezing point of water is set at 32 degrees, and the boiling point of water at 212 degrees. The difference between these two points is divided into 180 parts, making each degree larger compared to the Celsius scale. The 0°F mark, according to common history, was taken by Fahrenheit from measurements of the coldest winter of 1708-1709 in his hometown of Gdansk, Poland. The Fahrenheit scale is primarily used in the United States and some other countries, although the Celsius scale has become the global standard, where 0 degrees is the freezing point of water and 100 degrees is its boiling point.

How to convert degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvin? Formula

To convert temperature from degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvin, first, you need to add 459.67 to the Fahrenheit temperature value. This is done because zero degrees Fahrenheit corresponds to -459.67 degrees Celsius, which is absolute zero in the Kelvin scale. Then, the obtained result is multiplied by the coefficient 5/9, which accounts for the proportion between the Fahrenheit and Kelvin scales.

Absolute minimum temperature in degrees Fahrenheit

Absolute zero is the theoretical minimum temperature at which particles of a substance completely cease motion and possess no thermal energy. In the International System of Units (SI), absolute zero is defined as 0 Kelvin (K), which corresponds to -273.15 degrees Celsius or -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit. Absolute zero serves as the basis for many thermodynamic calculations and research.

"451 degrees Fahrenheit" by Ray Bradbury

The number 451 degrees Fahrenheit is associated with the temperature at which, in Ray Bradbury's science fiction novel "Fahrenheit 451", book paper ignites spontaneously. In this literary work, reading books is prohibited, and the law enforcement officers called "firemen" destroy any texts to maintain control over information and societal thinking. Thus, 451 degrees Fahrenheit has become a symbol of censorship and suppression of free speech. The book has received numerous awards, been adapted into films, theatrical productions, and even a computer game.
